I made a point of buying something I can't use

Question

I have a big problem, and I think I know how to solve it but I have too much anxiety to follow through without inquiring here first about potential disappointments.

 

Last weekend I bought this game from Fry's Electronics because I wanted to feel special owning the physical game box even though there's nothing in it except the DVD and a single document which I presume are only for installation purposes. I come home, pop in the disk drive of my Dell XPS L521X and... nothing. I then spend several hours trying to properly re-calibrate and eventually reinstall the 'MAT****A DVDRWBD UJ167' device, but to no avail. Fortunately though the document does contain a PoE 'Steam Key' which I am confident would be exclusive to my copy of the game, however before I proceed to register on Steam (which is a drag tbh)..

 

a) Is it as simple as creating a Steam account, entering the key, then downloading and installing the game through the client?

 

b) If I do install this way, will I be required to launch Steam with the game like Battle.net or something?

 

c) I'm assuming I bought the 'Hero's Edition' equivalent ($30) since all it says is 'Pillars of Eternity' on the box, but could there be any gameplay-related features I'd be missing by changing installation methods?

 

 

 

I'm 25 years old.

 

 

Thanks in advance for replies
