Backup CDs are offered as an option to add to your purchase of our download games. The Backup CDs are especially useful for those with slower internet connectivity in order to greatly reduce the download time of the game(s). Backup CDs can only be purchased as an addition to a download game purchase.
Backup CDs are defaulted to the shopping cart at checkout time - you have the option to remove the item before you submit the order. Installing games with Backup CDs does require an internet connection as the activation process is identical to that of download installations.
Game purchases with Backup CDs are subject to the same number of subsequent activations as our download games. After an order is placed for a backup CD please allow up to 14 days for the backup CD to arrive in the mail.
