View Full Version : Steam pre-order

I already own the telltale everything pack (on steam) will I be able to gift my 2 extra games to a friend when I prepurchase on Steam?

I would wait for a TTG employee to answer this for you, but I expect the two free games to only apply to orders made through this website. The Steam page for the game does not even mention the two extra games. Hopefully this doesn't stop you from ordering the games!

It does not stop me. Steam advertises the 2 free games for me...
But I am not sure where to buy them. I have all the other games on Steam (I Bought S&M Season one and later the telltale Everything-pack with Strong Bad included) but that has the disadvantage that I cannot get the Bonus DVD or share the games with my friends since I am not willing to give them my Steamaccount.
Edit: Okay I just preordered the games any ways.
No gifts for my friends.
I guess the topic can be closed now.

I don’t think, that you’ll be able to gift the two extra games.
I bought Portal some time ago [was a Weekend Deal]. Then I got The Orange Box for a low price and activated it, but I couldn’t gift my then extra Portal. A friend once bought Eets on Steam and later that Indie Game Pack which was a Weekend Deal, too, not so long ago. He also couldn’t gift that extra game.
In fact, the Steam Support Knowledge Base mentions only Half-Life 2 and HL2: Episode One as the only giftable games [here (https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6262-QXCN-0755) and there (https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=4502-TPJL-2656)], when already bound to that account with which you want to buy the new pack.
Sorry to disappoint you, but that’s it, I guess.
Aw, didn’t realise your edit...

When GTA was on presale with Vice City as a free game rockstar enabled gifting if you already had Vice City on your account. So there could have been the slight possibility for the free games to be giftable.

Oh, yeah, I remember. That’s right... Don’t know why it isn’t possible in general [it should be IMHO].
But that’s probably something that should be discussed with VALVe.
