Just a friendly and timely reminder to all owners of rFactor 2 who originally purchased their copy from the ISI website. Free migration to Steam ends January 31, which is the cut off day for support for the non-Steam version of the title.
From tomorrow onwards, Studio 397 will not support any and all non-Steam copies of rFactor 2. There will no longer be any build updates or new content released that will be compatible with this version of the title.
Recently steps were taken to make the purchase of online passes redundant. Owners of rFactor 2 whose copies have already been migrated over to Steam will be able to access the online functionality of the title by default and will not be required to undertake any further steps to do so.
In case you are in the camp that has not yet migrated to Steam, there is a summarised guide available here. For your convenience, the guide has also been added to this article. This will be your last opportunity to add rFactor 2 to your Steam library free of charge.
How can I transfer my rF2 purchase to Steam?
You absolutely should move to Steam because it is the only place to get new updates and content. Also, multiplayer is now free on steam, so you don’t have to worry about losing subscription time.
Please note the following points before proceeding:
– NO REFUNDS WILL BE PROVIDED AFTER RECEIVING A STEAM KEY.
– YOUR NON-STEAM RFACTOR 2 LICENSE WILL BECOME INVALID.
NOTE: Some email providers do block our emails. Contact us if you cannot find the email within a few hours.
