Why is my Steam code not working?
What if you followed the steps accurately, but your key is still not working?
The problem may be in entering the key.
The game code has 25 digit characters that are grouped into 5 and are separated by dashes.
Recheck the code and make sure that you don’t miss any digit.
Also, make sure that you are able to differentiate your 0 (zero) and O, Q and D (letter), 1 and the capital letter i, B and 8, G and 6… and so on.
