No word of an online pass... Assassin's Creed has one, so I assume GR:FS has one. Awesome if it doesn't, but doesn't bother me if it does as I'm getting it anyway. I do hate that these companies have resorted to online passes, but it's never a problem for me to get one, even for used games. You don't have to buy it new to get an online pass for cheap/free.
Most Ubisoft titles with an Online Pass - also have a 2 or 3 day free trail - so your able to play online for that short period. [ideal if you rent]
But like Ubi-Mush said, we don't have any information at present.
Does player age have anything to do with playing online?
The online passes are a waste of consumers money. Sure I can understand that the devs dont make a profit on used games, but that is still a penalty towards the people out there who can't afford to purchase the game, or want to try out the online experience before buying. There should always be a online trial of some kind or a level cap (which i'm glad GR:FS has). Someone could possibly go into a gamestop to purchase a used copy of a game that may still hover @ $55.00, and then realize that they need to purchase a $10.00 online pass that then puts the price @$65.00!! Now they will want to try and return the game to purchase a new copy @%60.00.......but now they may not have enough gas in the car to get back to the store, or the means to. Things like this are what production companies and or developers don't think about or don't care about.
