I was thinking about joining STEAM to buy this game....
Some games are only available from Steam or require Steam to activate them. That's why I got a Steam account.
Yeap, like most of us, and NOT because we love Steam like some might think!
thanks guys for the heads up. I guess I didn't explain myself very well. I would rather not have to join STEAM but as you point out, it's the only way (for me) to buy Dawn of Man. Some good news for any interested, Ancestors - the Humankind Odyssey will be available from epic games this aug 27th. Here is a gameplay session at GameSpot:
I went through the same experience in 2016 with Origin when I bought SimCity5. To say I was very upset would be accurate. In the end, it didn't matter b/c I found out my PC needed an upgrade, so I ended up getting SC4 besides.
best wishes to all
If you only want to buy Dawn of Man, you can buy it from GOG. GOG is DRM free and you donīt need the GOG Galaxy app to install it. Buy it, go to your GOG game library and choose manual download from the game install drop down tab.
Itīs a bit more expensive then the Steam edition, but unless on sale GOG games usually are thus DRM free...
No issues now
