no I own it seperate but it has been added into steam. I can launch bad company through steam etc.

Edited**

sorry I bought bad company from a shop, then have added it into steam if that makes sense, its not actually a steam game.

thats not the same as owning bc2 through steam. As far as i know, you wont be able to use it. As bc2 vietnam is said to require bc2 on steam. Luckily you can buy bc2 for just $7 now. Give your original copy to a friend.

yeah I know its not but I heard you could add it in then use it like normal. **** sake.

This sucks big time,

Also none of my friends play pc games apart from me, or do but play things like original settlers and not newer games because their comp isnt upto it.

Would I have to wait for a code for it by the way, only games I have through steam have either been bought as a steam game (Civ5) or with my graphics card

ok well I will see what the support says,. still no answer but it is nearly 9 o clock at night

Was right looking forward to it as well, serves me right for getting excited.

Yeah when it patched last time it put the vietnam bit on and asks for a key (sometimes)

Its strange though because it loads the game, asks if I want to be put into a squad etc then says it lost connection, bizarre, Ill see what steam say, if not Ill get it revoked and just go and buy it from shop
