The benefit to this, however, is that DLC, if it exists, is more easily managed than below. In this case, the EA account is not required to access single-player (in some cases, it may be required to activate the game).For DLC, however, the game will require an account either way.I've been looking around on different forums to see the reason for this issue and came across this appears this has happened before, and it looks like it will only get worse before it gets better.
