We discontinued the Online Pass which means that you don't need them for EA games anymore. It is possible that you still have to download the Online Pass from the Xbox Marketplace, but it won't cost you anything.

 

Please read more about that here:

Please read here how to re-download your Online Pass in case it gets corrupted:

i have entered my online pass code which i got some time in 2013, i have entered it into three different places on the website a one on my xbox but i doesn't work. i have looked through my history and that thing and there is not history of me putting the code in. When i tried to get something off the exchange it said you need a code or something and i entered it but i didn't work.

 

get back to me soon,

Do I have to download something to get my code to work?

Ive had the same problem, the trick that gets me by each time is that I start up the game, connect to EA BY PRESSING Y. Then it takes me to that same page that says i need an online pass. I press purchase code. It tells me I already purchased a code and to download the pass. I click download, it downloads supposedly in less than one minute, i Press CONTINUE. THEN it still says can't connect to EA SO I CLICK THE WHITE XBOX BUTTON X at the center of the controller.. go to the left click on MY GAMES. Then I click on THE SIMS game, and when I return BOOM IM AUTOMATICALLY SIGNED INTO EA GAMES ONLINE PASS THE EXCHANGE. No code or purchase needed!
