I'm new to PC gaming. Just heard of this recently.

It's a number code that you enter into Steam to claim the PC game, download it, and play it.

Alphanumeric actually. Numbers and letters.

Once you have a code TC, you go into the steam client (which you need to download and install) and then add the game by going to "games" at the very top and then selecting "Activate a Product on Steam"
