I recently purchased Dead Island from Gamers Gate. It is now the ninth of september and the game should be released in Europe. However my activation key has three brackets. It looks like steam wants me to have six brackets of the activation key but i don't have that, i don't know if it matters but i still can't activate the game because i get the message "this game has not yet been released in your country" Can i get a new code or what should i do? this is really wierd as the game is certainly released in my country now. (i live in Norway)
As far as I know the early steam version is a beta version - they uploaded the wrong version. But this has been fixed by a patch afterwards.
If this is the case, redownload again the game from steam, or grab the patch they made to fix that and retry.
Let me know if this works.
is it pssible downloading the game from steam even when i purchased it from Gamers Gate? if so that might work out, but how exactly do i do it?
I have the same problem. In another topic, a user suggested to ask Gamersgate for another activation key at email@example.com, he got a new key this way.
I did it yesterday but no response so far. I'm a bit annoyed, got friends ready to launch game and they have to wait for me downloading the game, yet.
i just tried downloading it, however i have to enter the key in order to download it and the problem is that steam says it's not yet releaed in my country
Just as I was typing here, I've found a new activation key in My Games section. Tried and it worked, I'm downloading it now. So contacting them via e-mail definitely works, do it mates. Thank you Gamersgate.
via the ask quisteion under the support section i assume? i tried that, i hope it won't take long before i get a new code. How long did it take for you to get the new code Sylmawen?
It may not be released on steam in your region until a certain hour of the day in your region,do check the store page for dead island on steam,it should tell you on there if you have to wait any amount of hours.
my friend is downloading the game right now, he is from the same country.
(thanks for all the help btw guys)
I have the same problem the activation key on steam its too short and is not valid for my country (Italy) and now?
We have to w8 for new regular keys valid for Europe?
Gamersgate is not serious sell keys that are not valid for European Country, its my last time that i buy something on this site.
I'm very angry :-(
