What I've read is, that the game is rated M, which result in an age restriction of 18, but I;ve also read that you can play online if your 13 or older.

Maybe you could check your birthdate on your windows live account, linked to your gamer profile?

It's a very glitchy side EA.

If your age is below 13 when you register it will classify you as a child account and when you turn 13 it will deny you until you are 18.

However, if you register as 13 year old(+) it will let you play the servers.

Your best bet is to contact live support on the EA website and ask them what the present DoB (Date of Birth) is set as.

Hope this helps,

Brad.

@boa4 If it's rated M, it will not allow you to play until you are 18.

For those having the issue, please check your Origin account that you created and make sure your date of birth is correct. If it isn't correct you will have to either change it from EA's website or contact EA directly.
