Seeing Red Faction: Armageddon has Steamworks (Steam Achievements and VAC) but on no other distributors page I checked steam is being mentioned, I was wondering:

Does Red Faction: Armageddon require Steam? If I buy it somewhere else than Steam, will I be able to activate it on Steam?


Red Faction: Armageddon requires Steam.

I am not able to find an official statement but users reported that retail version installs Steam. The same would happen for keys you buy from other digital delivery services.

If you buy a key you can activate it as described by this QA.

  • The game is not listed in the retail-key-activateable list linked to by the QA. support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=7480-wusf-3601 – Kissaki Jun 16 '11 at 19:43
  • Sorry, I didn't check it because for some reason I cannot access that page, at the moment. But I am sure they will add soon that game to the list of games that can be activated. – Drake Jun 16 '11 at 19:51
  • Yeah, hopefully. Sad how obfuscated this is. – Kissaki Jun 16 '11 at 23:43
