I Pre-ordered the game through the PS Store a few weeks ago. I downloaded the the closed beta today, and followed all the steps to connect my PSN account to EA. It doesn't show that I bought the game though the website, and I cannot find the "refer a friend pass" tab... I even opened the beta like it said to do, and still nothing... I attached a photo where it says my ps4 is connected to show you that its true
Do you see something like this on the website?
If yes, then you need to wait for the VIP demo to start (January 25th at 9:01am PST). You have to log into the demo at least once to gain access to the codes for your friends.
Hope this helps!
That just means you have to wait for the demo to go live in an hour and a half, load up the game, wait a bit, then refresh that page. There is some weird issue where people who pre-ordered digitally through console stores are coming up as not registered for the demo on EA's website. It will (hopefully) be an issue once the demo goes live as Sony just sent me a message on the Playstation telling me I can download the demo now (which I had already previously done).
