I bought Rage from an online store yesterday. I activated the game and its DLCs (Anarchy Edition and Sewer Missions). After activation the game showed the popup:
Game already registered.
And after that it installed the game taking 20 GB space. Now when I started the game, the steam asked for updating the game and started downloading 17 GB of update. I also tried opening game in offline steam mode, but steam said that
Game is not ready to be played in offline mode.
I also tried a suggestion of validating local data integrity of the game on some forum, and it validated the data 100%, but still no use. Steam is still downloading that 17 GB update.
I have a very low Internet connection speed, and to download this amount of data will take a month. I can't wait for that long -- how can I bypass the update?
