If I own a game, which requires Uplay, on Uplay, and buy the same game later on Steam, what will happen?
Here are a few of my thoughts of possible outcomes.
- Will I get a key from Steam, which I cannot use, or need to register a new Uplay account to use it?
- Will I be able to launch the game both ways? If so, will they be separate entries on Uplay?
- Will Steam override the Uplay purchase so I can only use it from Steam?
To emphasize my actual question: I already know that if I own a Uplay title on Steam, I can only launch it through Steam, and vice-versa. What I'm interested in is what happens if I (accidentally) buy a Uplay title on Steam when I already own it on Uplay.
