GameStop Digital PC Purchases No Longer Require the GameStop App

Category: Gaming
Posted: 03:09PM

Ever since GameStop began selling digital copies of PC games in 2011, the process of actually acquiring the game involved multiple steps that turned several customers off; namely, requiring the GameStop app. Starting today, GameStop has revamped its process, removing the GameStop app requirement and instead allowing customers to receive download codes directly via email. Those codes can then be redeemed directly via the applicable service, such as Steam, Origin, or Uplay. Basically, just how other third-party e-tailers have operated for years.

To celebrate the relaunch, GameStop is holding a PC Gaming Spring Sale from now until June 2, with up to 85% off nearly 400 titles.

The GameStop app still exists, it's just no longer required; so you should still have complete access to your games if you load up the app.
