If you encounter issues when creating an account through the Steam Store, please try creating a Steam account using the Steam client/software:
Steam is a broadband platform for direct software delivery and content management. It is an integral part of all Valve software.
First, please see the Installing Steam topic for instructions on downloading and installing Steam.
The list of games available through Steam is constantly expanding.
For a full list of games currently available for purchase through Steam, please visit the Steam Storefront.
Once you have installed the Steam application, you will need to login to the Steam account you have added (or will add) your game to. Your game is tied to this Steam account and cannot be re-registered to a different account.
Clicking Library in the Steam application will bring you to a listing of all games that have been registered to this Steam account. Double click any of these titles to install and run the game.
NEVER give out your Account password to anyone over Steam. Please see the Account Security Recommendations topic for instructions on protecting your Steam account.
