Question about Physical copies.

Just a quick question about physical copies and what will happen on the 20th

I understand that there is no grace period. Somthing I read though is not quite clear.

Can we sign up for a subscription of game time and continue to play before we get our product code?

I ask due to the fact so many people might not get their boxes in time and we all know retailers tend to make mistakes in shipment.

Anyone have an answer?

I chated with an Origin rep and he said that they ship the game before the 20th so you will get it on time and possibly earlier.

Basically, EGA ends at midnight on 19th, and if you have not entered a physical product code by that time, you will not be able to play the game until you do enter the product code.

If Origin get the game to you on or before 19th so that you can add the code, then you have no worries.
I am telling the truth, honestly! I am as honest as the day is long! Besides, I am a terrible liar, everyone can see when I am lying - my lips are moving.
Like most other subs, I have a Referral Link. Clicking it gets you some stuff, and me some stuff too.

With most mmo's the answer is no. You can't set up billing until you enter the retail key.
