Posted 2nd Sep 2018
Hi

i purchased gta v for pc last month from cd keys & recieved the code on email.

Does anybody know if the code has an expiry date? Or does it need to be activated asap?

Typically they won't do, but it's always best to use the key asap. This is especially the case with purchases from non-authorised resellers such as cdkeys, as while they're generally fine, occasionally there will be an issue with a key purchased from them and if you wait a long time after purchase, it may not be straightforward to resolve.

It's up to you if you want to take the risk - it should be fairly small, but non-zero. You can of course redeem the key without installing it immediately, but I'm guessing that you're intending for this to be to an account that isn't your own?

Okay, but remember that you redeem the key to a Steam account, not to a specific computer. Which account would this be? Does it already exist?

Also, you can use an account on more than one computer, so long as you only access it from one computer at a given time.

Ah, you may be right - that does seem to be how the cdkeys listing is set up, and even for purchases directly on Steam they work in conjunction Rockstar Social Club to run the game. Either way, though, it'll be account- rather than device-bound.
Good luck with playing it on PC - it's a dog eat dog world on PS4 but it's a whole new kettle of fish on PC with all sorts of mods going on.
