I recently purchased Battlefield 3 for PS3, and I tried playing multiplayer yesterday. I entered the online pass, but when I try to find a server, every server visible to me has an alert symbol with this message you are missing one or more dlcs played on this server.

I'm not sure what's going on, do I need to buy an expansion pack, or download the maps, or something else?

I'm quite sure that this message appears because you are trying to connect to a server that uses one or more expansion packs. Try searching for a different server without any expansion packs.

Hope it helps

  • Thank you. So is there a filter to search for server without expansion packs? sorry, I'm not on my PS3 now, so I can't check it out

  • Also, I don't need to have a premium account to play multiplayer right?

  • @Chaos to be honest, I've never played BF3 on a PS3(except for a couple of matches during beta), but it is certainly possible on a PC version. And no, Premium will only give you all the expansions and a few extra weapons. But you can still enjoy multiplayer with a normal version of BF3
