In his words, the initial installation will be done with the DVD and the second step will be to activate the Steam key to download the remaining data set. “The disc doesn’t contain the entire game,” he states.

The reason for this rather restrictive solution was put in place simply by Hines because of too many game piracy’s on PC platform. Most unfortunately, this will not counter illegal copies of the game but will cause some complications to players who legally buy the physical version of the game.
