Microsoft Store Game Code Activation Guide

Redeeming a Microsoft Store game code is simple to do using the in-built Microsoft Store on Windows.

  1. Microsoft Store App

    Load the Microsoft Store app, make sure you’re signed in to the Microsoft account you wish to link the product to.
    Click the three dots in the top right corner to open a drop down menu, then click “Redeem a code”.

  2. Enter Your Code

    Type or paste in your 25 digit code and click “Next”.

    .

  3. Confirm Product

    It will display the product you’re going to get by redeeming the code. Upon clicking “Confirm” the product is permanently linked to your Microsoft account and there are no refunds.

  4. Installation

    Now the game is linked to your account and you’re ready to download and install. Click the three dots again, in the drop down menu click “My Library”.
    In the left hand column, click “Ready to install”, your redeemed product should be listed here, with an “Install” link to click.

    ⚠️ If you had a trial/demo version of a product already installed, you must un-install that before installing from your Library. Otherwise it can cause an error saying you still only have a trial/demo version, despite redeeming a code for the full game.
