BC2 Steam question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I allready own bc2 retail and Vietnam addon download from EA
steam has BC2 on the cheep and i kinda like having my games on steam.

my question is.
if i buy BC2 on steam and just login with my retail account details,will i still have vietnam on my account.

or is it not worth doing as i will loose Vietnam

reason i ask is.. i bought borderlands on the cheep on steam a while back and it kept my addon packs that i bought elsewhere

maybe. when you type your vietnam code in, it registers to your login. So i would think that your login would still work as normal even on the steam version.

Thats my thoughts.

Isn't it possible to add the bc2 key to steam? Will save you from having to buy a steam version. As for keeping the exp, not exactly sure, never tried it before smile.gif

All DLC and expansions are tied to your EA account. So you should have those in your Steam BC2. The only problem Dice said you can get between retail/EA/Steam in this situation is if you get Vietnam from Steam without BC2 steam. Or if you get Specact gifted to the wrong email.

Also Vietnam is installed on ANY BC2 even if you didn't buy Vietnam (if the game is updated).
