How to Install DLC on Steam With a Product Key


Steam keys can be purchased from a variety of sellers, and they function identically to the standard product keys that are included in the packaging of physically distributed copies of games. When you buy a game in a store that comes with downloadable content (DLC), the key to access the DLC may be printed on the game’s case or on a specific card that is packaged with the game. If you purchase digital content from Steam or any other online store, the developer may send you an email with a product key at some point after the purchase.

Simply right-click the game you want to check the integrity of in your Library, pick Properties, navigate to the Local Files tab, and then click the Verify Integrity of Game Files button.
