With this tool you can unlock DLCs for your legit game. Some DLCs require additional files. You won't be able to download them through Origin/EA Desktop/Steam (unless you actually buy them), you need to use the links below!

EA DLC Unlocker v2

(Windows only; Origin and EA Desktop)

Features:

  • DLC unlocking
  • bypassing region locks for game languages

Download

Installation instructions:

  1. Download and extract EA DLC Unlocker. (Special note for Sims players since googling "how to extract 7z file" is too hard for some of you - install 7-zip or WinRAR, right click on the downloaded file and select "Extract here". Depending on your options it may be under "7-zip" or "WinRAR" submenu.)
  2. Run setup.bat. (Special note for Sims players since I'm tired of hearing "but how do I run the setup.bat file?" - the same way you run any program or game on your PC - by double clicking on it.)
  3. Select "Install" to install the Unlocker. The script automatically detects if you have EA Desktop or Origin installed. If you have both it will detect EA Desktop only and game started from Origin won't have the DLCs unlocked! If this happens reinstall Origin and run the script again or use the manual installation instructions in the readme file.
  4. Select "Add/Update game config" and select the game.
  5. Download DLC files if needed - see the links below.

Uninstallation instructions:

  1. Run setup.bat.
  2. Select "Uninstall".

Updates and new DLCs:

When a game gets a new DLC check if I added it to the Unlocker. There's a changelog in the second post of CS RIN thread. If it's a DLC for The Sims 4 then the game config should automatically update when you restart Origin/EA Desktop. If it's a DLC for a different game - redownload the Unlocker and add the game config again. You can enable/disable automatic config updates in config.ini file.

No matter what game it is for - check if you need to download the DLC files. For The Sims 4 each Pack and Kit requires DLC files.

When a game gets a new update - just update it. No need to touch the Unlocker.
When Origin gets a new update - just update it. No need to touch the Unlocker.
When EA Desktop gets a new update - update it and install the Unlocker again.

Huge thanks to acidicoala for help with the Unlocker!
Check the readme file for the manual installation instructions and additional info for Wine users.
If you have the game on Steam and Steam store page says it incorporates 3rd party DRM and you need Origin client - these DLC Unlockers will work with your game too.
