Do you hate when you get the base game but then you have to buy the game again with the complete edition as buying DLCs is more expensive?

Does this activate for people who have the base game to give them the DLC? The eternal question that Steam never answers, and it varies per game. Worst case you're left with a shiny new key that someone else gets to enjoy...

Update: so I decided to take the hit for the good of all and the answer is yes, the key for the Imperial Edition will activate if you have only the base game and gives you the remaining DLC. It may take a while for this to show up on the store page (and/or you may need to update the game), but you do get it. Whether the DLC is worth it at that price is something you'll have to figure out for yourself.

99% of games keys will redeem what you are missing... there are only a few games out there that do not.

Sure -- but being bitten just once by one of those keys (and I have been) is enough to make someone anxious. Valve and their bundle shenanigans (where you can't buy them for others anymore) haven't made it easier.

As far as I can recall, and as far as quite a few googled threads from when bundles were just introduced in 2016 seemingly support (wherein a lot of users therein realize through discussion how the new complete-the-set bundles work, distinct from older packages), Bundles (as opposed to packages) were never available to gift to others, since they've always had the setup of being customized to the individual purchaser.

It is worth noting that we did used to refer to packages as bundles quite a bit prior to Valve creating reason for differentiating the phrasing, so that was the large part of early confusions on the matter. So perhaps that's what gave the impression of things having changed.

Yes, packages vs. bundles is what I meant. "Bundles" were never giftable, but after the introduction of "bundles" many "packages" were retired and turned into "bundles" (perhaps all of them have been converted by now, I haven't kept track).

I'm using quotes here because, while the terminology may allow for distinguishing them, to an average consumer it really shouldn't matter if you're calling a bunch of collected content a "package" or a "bundle", especially since the end result for your account is the same.

Fortunately apparently keys are still "packages" rather than "bundles". :P

I'm not really making any sense of any part of this. Is there a context I'm not getting? If not, do note that you're always able to activate any key, you just might need to go into your client's Help > Steam Support and remove your old key from your account; At that point, you'll be able to activate your new key without issue.

That said, the only time you should be running into issues with a key activation is when it's a duplicate registry, which generally only happens if you have 100% the same content or if the only difference in content is regional settings and/or censorship (and I haven't seen any instances of games using the latter settings in years, with most developers of those already scarce games having since just listed such games with entirely different Steam pages instead).

Perhaps you're thinking of in-client purchase issues, which occur when a publisher has misconfigured a package or bundle so that its store page listing doesn't list all of its available content. At that point, Steam inexplicably only checks the publically listed content, rather than the actual included content entries, and will restrict purchase based off that, if you own 100% of what's shown.

(For example, Life is Strange's full season package had such issues- iirc, it originally didn't include anything but the first free episode in its publically listed data [I believe since it was first made available when only the first episode was actually out, and hadn't been updated to include the later episodes on the store page since then, even despite the first episode having gone free]. As such, you couldn't enter without first removing the first episode from your account.)

In theory, if this occurs for a bundle rather than for a package, you may end up having to pay more, to replace the removed items. Other than that specific scenario, however, pretty sure you can always just remove existing content from your account without any penalty to your new activation. Though, again, you'll want to double check you don't actually own everything first (as, again, that's the usual reason activation will fail).

I've never tried this (remove game from account, buy a different version) and I don't know if it's actually true. All the information I see online implies that "removing" the key from your account still leaves that specific key associated with your account, albeit invisibly, and if you re-purchase the game you end up with the same key. Activating a key like this one would still work, but this one also works if you still own the game in any case, so that doesn't say anything.

If it does always work that's good. I forgot about this ability, since it hasn't always been present (in theory you could always get a game removed, but it used to require an explicit petition to support and wasn't automatically processed like it is today).

Store page for the package: https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/11193/Pathfinder_Kingmaker__Imperial_Edition_Bundle/

I personally think that only "The Wildcards" DLC is worthwhile, if you already own the base game, the reviews aren't talking that positive about the others.
(Don't forget to add the free DLC - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1041820/Pathfinder_Kingmaker__Arcane_Unleashed/ - if you're already at it)

Does this contain both the main game and the 3 DLCs?

Yes, the Imperial Edition is everything (except the two free DLCs you have to add on your own). There are actually 4 paid DLCs.

That's a really good price for the entire game. (Base + DLCs).

It's even cheaper in my currency CZK, don't know about EUR, but may be under €5.

Does anyone know when his promotion ends?
It's a pity that it is only -86% now.
Thanks for this information.
