I've caught them lying several times but they just kept repeating the 6th of September now they're telling me it will actually be here by midnight tonight but I doubt that. They sent me an email promising me I'd have it by then or rather:
"If it's not waiting for you in your inbox by tomorrow morning let us know."
In a away I'm glad I'm not the only one but I feel sorry for everyone to. Please let me know if and when your code arrives. :)
Well that just another LIE. my copy was preorder september last year a i didnt recieve a key. i only got mine today after complaing in chat yet again and now im getting email from STEAM quierying the cd key like ive entered a pirate key or something, so i now worried about that.
I can guarantee the code wont be there tonight. My plan from tomorrow onwards is to contact them over and over until i get a real answer or at least the code as others have achieved. Either way i won't be ordering games from amazon anymore.
Sorry you guys I'm only posting what I'm being told I didn't think there was truth in it but now I know for sure. My advice would be for all those who ordered before August 15th would be to insist your code should have been in your hands by yesterday and see what is said then.
Good luck all! :)
Forward the Amazon email containing your code to Steam if possible. They should be able to see it came right from Amazon if not they can check with Amazon.
Spoke to Amazon today, tried to be laid back about it because I expect working support on this issue sucks. Sadly I didn't get the email transcript I checked for though, just an email saying "by the 6th".
I'm hoping this means by midnight tonight, or as those of us in the English speaking world would say, "by the 7th".
Well, surprise surprise. Another 24 hours has passed and still no code. No doubt I will be told it will definitely be here on the 7th. I don't know what's going on but Amazon has lost all credibility. I don't believe a word they tell me anymore.
Isn't this false advertising? I specifically ordered from them because of the DLC pre-order offer.
"I understand and that is why we are requesting you to wait for a couple of hours to get the code otherwise we'll have to contact our technical team for a new code which would then take further 3-5 business days. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused."
No code for me either yet, but has it happens, ive not really needed it as desperatly as some seem to have as wasn't at a computer for a few days, and only really got to start on the game yesterday (6th). If I dont get it however after specifically pre-ordering for just that reason..
Didn't see the DLC as the main reason to buy the game from amazon, rather considered it as a nice bonus. As most people here, did not receive it on time, but only just have decided to contact the support and they gave me the code straight away. So, same as in the few previous posts, I just recommend having a chat with them. I believe there was a code shortage during the week, but it looks like they've got enough now, so if you want your code now - go chat with them. I suppose they'll be sending them out to e-mails soon as well. Good luck everyone, I'll go check out what the weather in Athens's like ;)
