Steam Gift Activation Guide
If you are new to Steam, or haven't redeemed a Steam Gift before, simply follow these instructions to download the software and activate your game
Step 1: Login or Register
Head over to Steam’s official website and Login or Register.
You only need one Steam account, so if you already have an account simply login.
If you don’t have an account then create one – and activate it by following the link that is sent to your email address from Steam.
Step 2: Redeem Your Gift
Once you have logged in to your Steam account, click the game’s link on the delivery site.
You will be taken to the Steam website and asked to accept a game in the form of a Steam Gift. If you have bought this game for yourself then accept the game and add it to your library. However, if you intend to send the game to a friend then add it to your inventory.
The game will now be added to your account.
Step 3: Downloading Steam
If you do not already have Steam installed on your computer then simply click on the button at the top of the page that says “Install Steam Now” (on the Steam website). This will open up a download window. Accept the file and then run it once it has finished downloading.
Install Steam onto your computer and when finished, start up Steam software and login to your account.
Step 4: Downloading
Simply go to the ‘Library’ tab, go to ‘Games’ and find the game. There should be a blue button that says ‘Install’. Simply follow the installation process to begin downloading the game.
To view the download status, go to the ‘Library’ tab and click ‘Downloads’ at the bottom of the drop down menu.
