DLC & PlayStation Plus clarification thread

[ Edited ]
145 replies 2502 views Edited Oct 5, 2012

Hi everyone!  I've just updated the title of this thread.  I'm going to start using it to post some answers to frequently asked questions regarding the purchase process for the DLC and PlayStation Plus edition.  Feel free to reply to this thread with your questions on these two topics only!  I'll still be answering gameplay related questions in the threads where they pop up.

 

1. You do NOT need to purchase an online pass with the Single Player Edition.  To enable access please purchase the Starhawk Multiplayer Edtion on the store instead.  In addition no further Online Pass is needed with the Multiplayer Edition.  Just install it and you're ready to rock!

 

2. Players who receive the single player version from PS+ and then buy the Multiplayer Edition this will have the ability to unlock the Platinum trophy for the complete game.

 

If you bought the online pass by mistake before the descriptions were updated and you are in the SCEA (North America) region you can do the following:

 

  1.    Go to the contact page on the PS support site (http://us.playstation.com/support/ask/).
  2.    For Product select from the drop down "PlayStation Network"
  3.    For Sub select "Voucher/Promo Codes"
  4.    For Topic select "Voucher/Promo Codes"
  5.    Include sign-in ID and online ID in form.
  6.    Question: Indicate you would like a refund for the Starhawk online pass and a free Warhawk Paint Scheme voucher.

Sony will verify your eligibility, then issue you a refund and a Free Warhawk Paint Scheme voucher for your trouble!

I purchased an online pass for the Solo Campaign I got free with Plus. It doesn't give me the option to use it. Did I just lose my money?

That's screwed up being that it says I'd have access to all online features. They should fix that, I bet I'm not the only person who purchased the online pass.

I'm pretty sure it mentions requiring a retail copy.

This is a big Question in the forums that I've seen asked a lot.  

 

Does DLC content (skins, vehicles) you can get for free with PS+ go away if your PS+ subscription expires?

Hay pete, i was wondering why in the pregame of assult, why i cant use DLC. But the other team could. I also couldnt use DLC the whole time i was on the Defending team. But once i switched over to the Attacker, i could use both of my structures. This is not an itching problem. I just wanted to know if it was intentional.
