What are Backup CDs for and how do I buy them?

A Backup CD gives you a physical backup of the games you buy and save you time on downloading. They are especially useful for users with slower internet connectivity so that installation time is greatly reduced.

They may be purchased only at the time of the purchase of your game. Backup CDs are defaulted to our shopping cart at checkout time - you have the option to remove the disc before you submit your order.

Installing purchased games with Backup CDs does require an internet connection for the activation process, which is identical to that of download installations.
