If the source of the keys is Alienware Arena, users entering these giveaways should be warned, that they will most likely win a temporary key.

Quote from the giveaway page on Alienware Arena: "Play Heliborne Collection on Steam for free until June 21st! "

So I suppose, keys will be revoked after June 21st.

Perhaps this is the time during which you need to activate the key

But then it should be phrased differently...

The wording doesn't suggest that.
I agree with OP that the game access will end after the 21st.

The wording isn't clear, but it's possible that during the 21st there will be the last set of key given away, and that the keys aren't temporary

That might also be it, but they are not giving away a lot of keys. They will surely run out of them today. Last time I checked they had 500+ keys left with roughly the same amount already given away.

What's puzzling me one comment pointed out the key would drop cards. That's unusual for a free time limited access key.

A lot is unclear. But one thing's sure, there is some sort of limit on June 21st (be it activation limit or free to play limit). So it would be nice if the users who still create giveaways with these keys, added a warning message about this uncertainty.

Let's hope you're right and the guys over at Alienware Arena simply wanted to say there is a time limit for activation, but phrased it badly.

I have a feeling they are limited time keys. I think it's best not to use them for GAs as they very well may be revoked on the 22nd.

i think that too. To me it seems that you only can play till the 21 of July.

It even states to be limited access: Heliborne Collection Limited Steam Access Key Giveaway

Thanks for posting this, it's appreciated. Hopefully people will read that before making GAs so the support queue doesn't blow up for it.

Unfortunately some of the giveaways even ended by now.

A user posted a response from Alienware Arena in the other thread here. They said that you will only be able to play the game until the 21st and then it will be revoked.

That clears it up. But people are still creating giveaways for both this game AND Surviving Mars from Humble Bundle, which theoretically can't even be activated anymore, since the deadline for activation was yesterday.

I think for hbs surviving mars, you only need to get the key before the deadline, I activated it just now to test and it worked.

Oh, I get it now. Redeem the key before the 18 but activate it anytime.

People just need their free CV and +1 to their profile, and that's all...

I don't really know what all that means. I like games but don't care about Steam level and stuff 😅

For anyone who see this, please do not use for GAs as the keys will be revoked. If you've made a giveaway with one of these keys and the giveaway has not ended, please delete it.

As mentioned in our guidelines these keys can not be used for giveaways and are against the SG guidelines to use.

Beta keys which do not provide unrestricted access to the full game in the future, guest passes, demos, and coupons cannot be given away.
