With $10 off, this is the best deal on SR3 for PC I've seen, so I preordered. But my question is - this is a Steamworks game, correct? So will we just receive a code from Amazon to put into Steam? I'd much prefer that, actually, but it worries me that I see no mention of this on the product page.

Yes, THQ has confirmed that the game will use Steamworks. Wish I had known before I preordered on Steam, could've saved 10 bucks. :( As for how it works, I've never bought a download game off Amazon, but I'd assume the CD Key would be sent to you, and also be available in your account at any time, then you'd just need to Redeem that code in Steam for it to be added to your account so it can keep track of it.

You could cancel whenver before release date and have them refund.
Just give them at least a week to do it.

If it is like Dead Island you can use the key from Amazon and activate on Steam, 2 friends did this and saved $10 each by getting it from Amazon. In light of this I have SR3 pre-ordered on Amazon.

Your account at Amazon has a list of all the games you've bought and their keys. For this game just put your key in steam and you're done.

ramires, you can cancel your order on Steam, just email them. As long as the game isn't out yet they'll refund it. Then you can order via Amazon.

I bought a couple of games on Amazon download and they work as advertised. No issues really. You get a link to download the game along with the game code. You just enter it in and you're done.

What Fani said, you get a Activation Key then you go on steam and in the bottom left corner you click ADD A GAME - Activate a Product on Steam... then enter the key and start the download from steam.

So you can download the game on the 11th, but when can you play the game??

Steam says it doesn't unlock until the 14th.
