Apparently, on the forums, users are reporting that they have yet to receive a 20-digit code for the game, and even after following the instructions, others are reporting that those codes were already used. Very weird stuff.

i got mine. worked fine. is EA sure its not their servers? cause they have been going up and down.

just checked, i got a 16 digit code and entered it through the origin software, worked just fine.

Maybe you have to register the code on the Origin website itself.

At the very least, it's easier to do that than to use the one build into the app.

Mine worked fine. Perhaps because EA's crappy origin servers were getting hammered from people trying to redeem the games.
