How do I download BC2 off of EA?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I have BC2 on my account, I own the game, and the hard copy. I lent the hard copy to my friend to install it so he can buy a key for cheap so we can play together.

I just put together my new rig and got a stable OC overnight so I want to just see what the differences in performance are compared to my old rig. Well, he's away right now and I'm wondering if there's a way to download BC2 off of my EA account?

Not sure if that is possible. Companies don't like it when you lend MP games.

Before you can play online you will need to download the patch first, along with the map packs. If I can recall it took me around 6 hours to download. And if your internet cuts off even for a couple of minutes the download will crash and you will need to start from 0 again. Do you really want to go down that road?

It took me 1 hour to install and download BC2 on my old rig and 5mb down cable internet. Sounds like you need to do some serious upgrading or something.

Yes, just activate your BC2 serial number through EA Download manager. Works a treat.

You should be able to download the game via EA Download Manager.
