have word that all Elite: Dangerous
players will soon
be able to claim Steam
keys for the space combat MMORPG (thanks
). Here's how this will work:
We’ll soon be offering Steam
keys to anyone who bought Elite: Dangerous from the EliteDangerous.com store who
would like a key, and to anyone who buys the game from our store in the future.
We always appreciate it when you buy direct from our store because it means we
can put more into supporting and developing Elite: Dangerous, but we know a
number of long-time players and backers like to play through Steam and we think
it’s fair everyone has that option, not just new players.
Elite: Dangerous runs on Frontier’s servers, so we’ve been working with Valve to
give you a way to seamlessly connect your Steam and existing Frontier accounts
in a way that’s easy. It’s coming soon. From May 28 you’ll be able to generate a
Steam key from your account page, and we’ll have full instructions right here on
the forums closer to the time.
The team really has been working hard on this one, and we’re all super happy to
finally have an answer for you. Thanks for bearing with us and thanks for
playing, as always.
Edit: This applies to Kickstarter backers, too.
