I'm thinking of buying Chains of War, but I suspect it will be sold only for download and not also on DVD, as it has usually been the case with Matrix Games. If my suspicion is correct, is there a way I can download it twice for my two PCs, without paying for two games? I think so but not sure. Thanks.
Well, the simple solution is to use steam. You can uninstall CoW on one PC and reinstall it on another quite easily. It will be much smaller than the full game, so it shouldn't take too long at all, when you bounce back and forth. You just need to remember to uninstall it, while online with steam, using the steam uninstaller.
With Steam the game is tied to your account. So you could in theory install the game to 100 PCs without having to uninstall first.
Steam only allows a user to be to logged into your account from one machine at a time so if you log in on one machine you will be logged out of all others.
I have not tested the '100' theory but I do currently have the game installed to 4 machines without any issue
Guys, buy the game on Matrix or Sitherine's web site. You'll get their key, plus with most recent titles they give you an additional Steam key. I install the steam key on my home desk top, and put other on my traveling laptop in case I'm somewhere without internet (overseas or on along flight). Steam can be picky about dynamic IP's when you travel anyway. If you buy on Steam that's the only key you get. Plus, then you can't register it on Maxtrix/Sitherine where you always have access to your serial key numbers and the installer. Good hunting.
