Has anyone gotten their steam code?

#1 Posted by GenghisJohn (297 posts) -

I ordered from the thq store cause of the free dlc they were offering and got my confirmation email but no steam code. When I emailed them about it they sent me a URL that is apparently broken. Has anyone that ordered from the THQ store gotten their code yet? Thanks guys

It isn't available for another month, so I didn't think they'd be emailing anything out yet. I've emailed them with some questions about the steam side of it. Just waiting for a response.

Thats what I figured but the email the sent me was fairly confusing.

I don't think they ever said you would get a steam code.

I'm pretty sure they are just going to email a steam code. One of the system requirements is a steam account

Darksiders II uses Steamworks so no matter how you acquire the game, it's gonna get activated on Steam. I can't imagine THQ doing anything else other than sending out Steam codes.

I do wish preordering from the THQ store was more clear about this, though.

With "Steam code" you mean "serial key"? Yeah, you'll get one, just like you do with Amazon. But I assume they'll send it when the game is released.

If it's anything like Saints Row III which I got on the THQ store, they send the code out when it's ready to be downloaded.

@returnofjake: Thanks for the info, I can finally stop checking my email every 5 seconds :)

I ordered it back in June and I'd expect to get my Steam code within 24 hours of the release. That's how this always works.

I am in the UK and noticed the deal they have (Game+Season Pass+Argul’s Tomb DLC, Maker’s Armour and Scythe set, and Metro 2033) but I don't have the Armour and Scythe, or Metro 2033 in my invoice: has anyone else? I asked support but they gave canned answers. not even near what I asked.

I got an email response today that said

You will receive a downloadable install that installs the game into Steam. Metro2033 is a Steam Works title as well that installs in Steam

I have no idea what that really means. A download that installs in to steam? What?

@AlisterCat: Same way you install Steam games form a disc - it installs the game using its own installer and adds itself to steam

OK, so I got around to purchasing it from the THQ store. It came with Metro 2033 which I already have but even though that is a steamworks game it makes me download it through a really crappy download manager. Since I was told by support that I would 'download' Darksiders 2 through them I am worried it is going to be the same as this. I hope that is not the case.

I got mine last Friday (three days ago) and downloaded it on the spot (still locked until tonight).

Should unlock in 13 minutes if Steam is to be trusted

Just a heads up. I got my code from the Shop THQ store, so codes are out. Downloading now :D

Game's live now :)

Also, open source libraries as a menu option o_o - is there a concept page for that?
