says 'buy dlc' when trying to play dlc maps but am a premium member?

★★★★ Novice

Recently bought bf4+premium from the ps store as part of the 'easter sale' and I have claimed most of the premium extras for example camos, dog tags etc but when I go to play any map from any dlc it says 'buy dlc' so I cannot play any dlc map

Some of the Premium camo and tags you must unlock via assignment, and the final stand tags you have to find.

 

As far as not being able to play the DLC, did you actually download all of it?  This is usually what pops up when they are not downloaded and installed.

Yes I have downloaded all of them and are installed, surely if I have claimed all the premium bonuses I mentioned and all the battle packs then I should be able to play it's the maps that won't let me play

Go on Origin>Right click BF4> View Game details.

 

Scroll down to where it says EXPANSIONS.

 

If they are not installed you should have an option to download them.

 

Also click each individual expansion to see if an option to update appears.

 

Most of the time that appears as a orange icon on the top right side of the expansion image.

 

Ah sorry just notice you are on Playstation.

 

But I am pretty sure they are not fully installed. Had a similar problem.

Getting the Premium items and stuff from Battlepacks does not mean you have the DLC installed, that only means you downloaded the Premium file.  You must manually download ALL of the DLC yourself, it does not automatically do it.

 

Load into the game and go to the in-game store.  Go to each expansion and see if it is installed or needs to be downloaded.
