Buyer Beware: Free Far Cry 2 Offer is a Scam

PC gamers, if you’ve received an authentic-looking e-mail offer from Steam for a free download of Far Cry 2, don’t click through.

The ad is not legit and the link does not go to Steam, but rather to the perhaps aptly-named ripway.com.

Here at GP we received two of these offers yesterday, and several members of the Joystiq crew received them as well.

We’ve notified Steam and we trust that they are taking the appropriate measures to shut down this apparent scam.
