@KingofKings3666 Jan 2021, I just bought a new copy of the game from Origin PC app (because I paid for the EA Play subscription so Spore is "free" through that service) and started up the game, it simply will not let me register the game at all, login screen won't take my credentials it just keeps saying there is a generic problem with the network. Seem like some aspects of the original service are still available to legacy players but new players get the cold shoulder now.

@SPORE-SandyJam In the EA Origin app if you pay for the monthly subscription for either the EA PlayPass or the premium pass, full-version SPORE (just the base game) is included in the list of "vault games" for those subscribers to play. I don't have access to the DLC unless I decide to pay for it, but the base game is part of the EA Play subscription service (at least for now; I hear the list of games changes from time to time)

@DrGangreene You didn't get Serial key, so you DID not buy Spore.

It should work if you get Spore through Origin. Get Origin, https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/download and right click on your Spore (on steam), Hover over Manage and click CD keys. Copy and paste that in your Origin library after going to Add a Game (by code) and, if no errors happen, you now should be able to log into Spore, whether launching it with or without Steam. You have to do this with Core Spore and the DLC.

★ Guide

Subscriptions do not seem to get access to servers for EA games. Only those who purchase the game can use online features.

 

You can try to see if EA Support will give you a serial code to register (which is what controls whether you can access the servers), but this is not guaranteed.

 

You will likely get an unusual error in Spore, either that it can't connect, or that network play is disabled. The game can still be played offline, but you will not be able to register a Spore screen name to use online features.
