BF4 China Rising Expansion not working

★★★★ Newbie
First, I'm writing this on my iPad, so forgive any errors...

I'm a BF4 Premium member on PS4 which gives me all Xpacs with early access, but also pre-ordered BF4 so my game came with the CR expansion as well.

China Rising was released this morning, so it's out now.

I downloaded CR but it isn't letting me access it, so I deleted it from my notifications list and it's not in my library (I assume it didn't install), so I went to playstation store to reinstall it but couldn't find out where to access it from, so I just re-entered my code (which gave me a prompt stated its already been used), but it gave me the information for the code stating it a china rising expansion code, but it wouldn't let me re-download it...?

When I start BF4, there is no prompt to download china rising, even though I'm a premium member, and also had the pre-order bonus for it. Even if I try to start Air Superiority game it just prompts that I don't have the required expansion and nothing more.

When I look in the Premium options from the game menu, it mentions china rising and gives some brief info, but no option to download.

I can't find the option to download china rising *anywhere*; not on playstation store, not in the BF4 game menu...nowhere.

I've been searching for the past few hours and I have to say it really has me pretty upset, I can't believe this big of an oversight has been made for such a simple thing.

All other game downloads and addons for other games have worked just fine, and I've been able to find them no problem, so I know it's not me just being stupid. Can anyone help me find a way to download it again, or force it to prompt a download for CR?

Thanks in advance!

Have you looked in the premium store in the Battlefield 4 menu? It should list all of the expansions and allow you to download it. It won't show it in the playstation store because it's not technically released to the public yet.

Hi it say the download will be avliable between 12-6pm GMT it's now 8.35 GMT and I have premium membership but still unable to download this game pack it doesn't show up at all in the ps store or on the in game store.
If I search servers I can see others playing it but can't join.
I have run the update today when I inserted the game disk this obviously installed after download but I assume this is just a game or patch update?
What's happening when can we get on this map pack in the uk? A we in for even more disappointment or is this the last of it?

This is a CONFIRMED fix for Xbox360! If you are having the issue where you try to join a server, and it directs you to the store to buy the expansion, even though you already own it, and have downloaded it, then try this:

 

-Delete everything related to BF4 from your hard drive, except the game save data if you wish.

-Clear the system cache several times.

-Boot the game from the disk. Do not install it to you hard drive, yet.

-Do the first update that pops up.

-Do the 2nd update that pops up. This should be the HD content install (2gig).

-Do the 3rd update, which should be the most recent multi-player update.

-After this update, it will say that you need to restart for it to take effect. DO NOT RESTART. -> CANCEL.

-Go to the in-game store and re-download the CR expansion. Should be free since you already own it.

-When this is done, DO NOT accept the offer to restart. Instead, exit straight to the Xbox Home Screen.

-Now install the game disc content to your HD.

-Start the game, and your CR expansion should unlock
-Hope this helps!
