View Full Version : PC/Steam Pre-order

03-25-2013, 02:27 PM
Just wondering if the people that pre-ordered the game through steam will have problems having access on release. Seeing there was a lot of people that had problems accessing the beta using the code they got through steam. 5 of my friends and the only 5 I know that pre-ordered and tried accessing beta this past weekend couldn't access it. Hope trion looked into this issue. I know my account is still telling me I have to pre-order even though I already put in my pre-order codes etc. from steam.

As far as the steam codes i believe there are/were some issues but come release it should be fine. In reality steam is only a publishing platform and although it does launch the games in the case of an MMO steam launches the launcher so there shouldn't be much if any technical issues.

I believe all the trouble was within the beta codes from steam & nothing more.

Your codes for Defiance on Steam should be under CD key in the list on the right.

If I'm not mistaken, the problem with steam was that it downloads the Post-Launch Patcher rather than the Beta Patcher. It should be fine at launch though.

Edit: Also, in the end I just had to contact support and I was in the beta within a few hours of purchasing my Pre-Order. My friend was having trouble with the patcher and just gave up. If he'd been more active and contacted support he'd have had a chance to get on and play as well. If you just sit and fuss rather than doing something about the problem, there is little else to blame.

I just downloaded the game via the site and not Steam out of fear that it would link my accounts, which is ill-advised during BETAs.

Thanks for the clarification all.
