Steam and expansion packs

#1APicPosted 8/3/2014 3:57:19 PM
Ok, quick question. I'm planning on playing Titan Quest, which is in my steam library, and I've noticed that it and it's expansion pack are separate. Do I need to download both the base game and the expansion, or does the expansion contain the base game within itself?

Also, would this also apply to other games, such as Company of Heroes or Dawn of War 2?

Right Click the game in your library, go to properties and then the DLC tab.

It should show you which expansions are installed.

No, what I mean is that the game and the expansion show up as two separate things in my games list, so the expansion doesn't show up under a dlc tab.

Then you need to download it separately.
You try downloading just the expansion first and see if it works. From a quick size estimate between the expansion and base game you should be able to tell whether the expansion includes the base game or not.

depends if the expansion is standalone or dependent on the main game. sims 3 expansions are separate from the game on the store and in your library but still requires the main game to play.

For TQ, you need the base game to be installed and ran once. Then, you can just play the game through IT.
