Multiplayer Pass vs. actual Xbox Live Gold?

#1RashoujinMizukiPosted 12/1/2012 11:13:20 PM
I'm trying to use a Multiplayer Pass to play ME3 online, but it seems the online DLC isn't showing up even after I've downloaded and installed it. Is this because I'm using a Multiplayer Pass, and I actually need Gold to install the MP DLC?

You need both.

Ah, yes! I was wondering what would break first! Your spirit...or your body.

if you plan on playing online, you need gold

the multiplayer pass is just so EA makes sure they get your monies; it's to deter people from buying used copies

Not sure I understand what you mean by DLC "not showing up" but I have a friend who is playing MP on a Silver account, thought she did have a Gold account. previously when playing MP.

(Her Gold account ran out after she had all the DLC)

you cannot access online mp on a silver account. your friend prolly has/had more time.

I tried that. You can still set up your character ( powers, weapons, equipment ) on a Silver account but I could not join or start a game.

If you see this it means I've lost my nerve and stopped lurking.

Err okay, maybe she's using a trial code or something, I know she doesn't have a gold membership. If i look at her membership status in the social tab on the dashboard it lists her membership as "free" not "gold".
