How to access cerberus network content

Cerberus Network is an online DLC and news service for Mass Effect 2. It is included with every new copy of Mass Effect 2 and the Mass Effect Trilogy, and can also be downloaded separately at no additional cost. [1] It can be accessed from the Mass Effect 2 main menu, and is seen as a terminal display for news and updates.

Contents

Activation [ ]

On the main Mass Effect 2 start screen, there is a second computer on the right-hand desk that opens to show the Cerberus Daily News and any new DLC that is available. If Cerberus Network has been activated on a console, each individual profile will have access to the downloaded DLC. However, only the profile that activated Cerberus Network will be able to download new updates.

The Retail Bonus Items are not available through the Cerberus Network until unlocked. The Promotional Bonus Items are not available through the Cerberus Network until unlocked through other means.

Any DLC obtained through the Cerberus Network is downloaded through BioWare’s social site on the PC, through the Xbox Live marketplace on the 360, or through the PlayStation Store on the PS3.

Due to the deactivation of Bioware’s website, redeeming your activation code to obtain the Cerberus Network can no longer be done. The alternative is to turn to your EA account’s settings and going to the Redeem Product Code section and entering it there.

It’s a whole mess, EA has closed the in-game cerberus key activation in favour of moving everyone over to Origin or something like that.

Follow this topic

(note that this topic asks that you sign in using myaccount.ea.com but it’s broken. Use https://www.ea.com/ instead).

You bascially need to create/ sign into an EA account from their home page and redeem your steam keys through EA’s site:

Then download and install all the DLC manually through EA.

Thank you so much Edwards, you were absolutely right with what you said.

When you launch mass effect 2, you get a list of codes, the product key code (last one) is the one you use on origin because that is the key confirmation you bought the game

(yes you bought it on steam but you did purchase it so you get that code as a receipt.)

You add that key code on add non origin game under games and woala, you get the game on origin.

Don’t uninstall the mass effect on steam though because they are connected.

Once you install the game, you go on extra content and the cerberus network access is for free along with some other dlcs that are not on this list

I am just elaborating what Edwards said just to confirm that he is right since there are no other replies on this discussion and i see lots of people having this issue.

Took me 2 hours to find this small discussion in the midst of other forums giving the broken links so i hope i helped in some way lol

Hi, I bought Mass Effect 2 Digital Deluxe on steam platform. When I start I take 3 code Promo Key, Cerberus Key and Game Key. When I tried type my cerberus key when they ask me to type, they show me that key is incorrect. Check code and try again. the code when I type is XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX . All my codes are disabled ? Sorry for my english

I hope you can help me

This thread is a bit old but I recently reinstalled ME2 and DLC but Cerberus Network is not listed on my Registered Game Content at BioWare Social Network. I redeemed the code along with all the other DLC almost 2 and a half years ago and everything is there apart from this one DLC. I spoke to EA Support and they said I cannot download from BioWare anymore and it’s only a forum site and stuck to this answer despite me telling them I had just downloaded from there the same day. When they found out my copy is on Steam, which doesn’t make any difference, they were even less inclined to offer any assistance.

When I go to the available DLC I select Cerberus Network and acknowledge the BioWare Points needed (0 as it’s free) and it diverts me to the Registered Game Content page which I’m assuming should then have the DLC but it still doesn’t.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do or who I need to speak to so I can get this to work?

Each and every business must identify the threats it faces. For most iGaming affiliate businesses, these threats are principally external and – until now – deemed beyond our control, no matter the size and reach of any single affiliate company.

The threats posed by missteps in regulation are huge, with constant calls for more restrictive legislation following failings of individual outlying third-party marketers and unlicensed operators in mature and new markets.

Only by uniting to drive widespread positive change to raise standards, can we reduce this threat by impacting policy in the markets in which we operate

Cerberus Network seeks to represent the good guys:

  • Those who want to do more to protect their operator partners and – most importantly – the customers they share
  • Those who want the compliance & educational tools they need to do this all in one placesaving time and building efficiency
  • Those who believe that they market responsibly, but are keen to improve and be more socially responsible
  • Those affiliates who are seeking real, positive change for the industry.

Cerberus Network is a hybrid of an affiliate network and trade association, leveraging the best components of both to create an inclusive structure that welcomes affiliates of all shapes and sizes.

What We Offer

1) Learning & development initiatives for members and their staff to build personal growth & understanding of compliance and social responsibilities

2) The development of compliance & social responsibility tools to raise operational standards

3) Establishing the Cerberus Affiliate Foundation fund, an iGaming affiliate industry social responsibility programme

4) Engaging operator partners in these programmes to further relationships, trust and cooperation on key challenges facing the iGaming affiliate industry in regulated markets around the world.

5) Offering grants to start-up affiliates to allow them to grow and sustain responsibly.

6) Deployment of the Cerberus Standard Marks (Silver, Gold and Platinum) across Member publishing portfolios to make Members easily identifiable to customers.

Cerberus Network serves the iGaming affiliate industry in regulated markets around the world. We aim to protect the interests of our members, the industry and the customers we serve by promoting social responsibility, compliance and the creation of a safer gambling environment.

The Time is Now

The iGaming affiliate industry remains under huge scrutiny, particularly in the UK, where there are media and political calls for affiliate activity to be restricted and further regulated. Cerberus Network aims to provide guidance, support and technology for affiliates across multiple markets to demonstrate and build both compliance and social responsibility.

Efforts to establish a working trade association for affiliates have been frustrating, with challenging barriers to entry. Cerberus Network seeks to remove those friction points and move the industry forward globally.

Cerberus Network is conceived by Tom Galanis, MD of TAG Media. Tom has been at the forefront of collective affiliate action on compliance and social responsibility since 2016 and has previously pursued this through the International Gaming Affiliate Association and the All Party Betting & Gaming Group’s Working Group on Affiliate Marketing.

Who is it for?

Affiliates – all shapes and sizes, across all regulated markets

Affiliates active in all verticals and all regulated markets can apply for membership, priced at £399 per year, which sees them commit to a Code of Conduct covering compliance, social responsibility and learning & development progression.

These affiliates seek to protect the customers utilising their products and services as they refer them to operator partners. They also seek to protect their businesses from macroenvironmental pressures and the collective impetus Cerberus will bring will serve to shape and reinforce their operating environment.

They are affiliates seeking real, positive change for the industry. They are the good guys.

Licensed Operators – vetted by Cerberus

Operators will benefit from Cerberus as it will become a vehicle for furthering compliance and true social responsibility. It will give them confidence in commercially approaching members and allow them to build a positive narrative for growing their affiliate budgets and activity. Affiliate Programmes are invited to participate as Operator Subscribers in order to gain access to the network and support our social responsibility endeavours. There is a charge of £2,000 per month plus 5% revenue share on all new deals on the network. This revenue share will fund the Cerberus Affiliate Foundation.

Regulators

Whilst Cerberus Network is not set up with a purpose of demonstrating effective self-regulation, this will be a positive by-product. Cerberus Network will be established with the ability to assist and recommend ‘affiliate license’ scoping across markets.

The Players & the Wider Public

Cerberus Network Membership is structured so as to engage any affiliate, in any vertical and of any size, seeking to achieve a critical mass of membership in each active market within year 1 and to deliver positive change for the industry and societies we operate in.

Our Cerberus Standard Mark programme will allow customers who are prospecting gambling opportunities through affiliate marketing to easily identify Cerberus Members, building trust and delivering increased standards by which those customers are marketed to.

Cerberus Network is set up to ensure that the future for the industry is geared towards protecting the players we serve.

Ok, I recently bought the game during the steam summer sale and after finishing Mass Effect 1 I started 2. I created an account for the cerberus network and downloaded a bunch of DLC, but Ic an’t figure out how to get it to activate.

Whenever I start Mass Effect 2 there is always an error and I am forced to log in to the cerberus network manually, but I don’t know how to activate my downloaded DLC from there. Whenever I start the game up it always tells me it was unauthorized and that I need to log in to activate it.

  1. Did you buy your game used?
  2. Did you download your DLC through the in-game menu, or over Xbox Live/BioWare Social Network?
  3. What did you download?

Thanks for helping.

1) No, I bought it during the Steam Summer Sale. I did use the promotional code for the collector’s edition and I have access to the Cerburus Network in the game.

2) I downloaded it from the BioWare Social Network, I have no idea how to buy it through the in game menu.

3) The downloadable content from the user downloads page. I forget the exact name but it had a list of downloads for the digital collector’s edition and the cerberus network stuff.

Ok since you are on the PC, which would have been nice to mention earlier, the problem may be in the fact that your game isn’t linked with your BioWare Social ID, which is why you have the log in messages. On the Xbox, it is linked to your gamertag, and the PC you need to link your game with your BioWare Social ID in order to fully access the free DLC from Cerberus Network, which you should have downloaded anyway since you bought your game new and received a code for it. If you didn’t get a code for Cerberus Network, then the problem is that you need to purchase that code from the Social Network, but since you did buy it new, although I did buy mine retail, I’m not a big fan of Steam, you should have received a code. If that doesn’t work, I’ll see what I can do. Lancer1289 04:53, July 24, 2011 (UTC)
