using the store content with full retail game. [SOLVED]

Post by pixzi on Sun 29 Sep 2013, 12:06

hey guys,

Ive been reading through posts etc and other sites, but not the information i need. So here i am hoping to get the answers i need.

I have retail bought games from the base game right through to Island Paradise. I don't own any stuff packs (tempted to buy Movie pack, unless this works okay).

I am so tempted to install you midnight hollow (downloaded it earlier) but not sure if it's safe to use with retail games.
I'm still buying In To The Future on disk as well.. 

I just want to know can EA find out if i'm using a pirated copy of Midnight Hollow?
Will i still be able to log in game with my account? I don't want to get banned.
I would only be downloading midnight hollow, maybe the movie pack if this works, just don't want backlash.

How would i patch my games?

Thank you for any help in advance..

Hello,

No, there aren't any problems when you install G4TW store content, you can still log into your account. Wink

Actually, you can even have pirated expansions/stuff packs from G4TW installed. And you could still log into your account. In order to have an account, you need to have a valid serial number (from a bought game). EA has no way of knowing what other games you have installed; your account is connected to your purchased game(s) - and that's it.

Is there anything else I can help you with ?
