I started up bf4 oin ps3, downloaded the 240mb update, then installed.  I'm a premium member.  I filter out the maps to only show the new ones.  I click on the server with the new maps and it's telling me to purchase the premium membership to play.  I redownloaded my premium ps3 100kb patch just to make sure, but still getting the same error.  Super dooper!

I'm a PC user and the latest update made BF4 un-playable. It crashes to desktop on loading any server. I was initially trying to load the new China Rising maps (I'm a BF4 Premium user) and then realized not only will it not play the China Rising maps but it will not play and other of the initial release maps.

Same problem here. Bought the Digital Deluxe which is supposed to include China Rising. Try to play any of the CR maps and I'm told I need to buy an additional expansion pack. Hope they get this fixed soon!

I bought the BF4 Deluxe Edition and I can't play/download the expansion either... Great job EA, great f***ing job.

Ps3 in the U.S. 

 

Premium member. Downloaded the patch or whatnot. Cant play anything multiplayer related. Nothing works. China Rising maps show up, but I keep getting prompted to purchase premium which I already am. None of the servers even non dlc will let me connect. Not to mention, over half of my dog tags are gone. $110 spent and I cant even play anything? An explanation or some help would be appreciated .

This is pathetic....can't even load into the new DLC without crashing now as well as crashing into servers with vanilla maps.

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!
