When it comes to purchasing BeamNG.drive, you have a couple of options. If you have a Steam account and you buy your games through Steam, the easiest option available to you is to simply purchase the game from the Steam store. Simply add the game to your Steam cart and follow the checkout procedure. One of the advantages to purchasing the game through steam is that it will allow you to add it to your Steam library of games for organizational purposes. Furthermore, any future updates to the game will be downloaded and installed automatically for you!
If you do not have a Steam account (and don’t want to create one), you can always purchase the game through the Humble Bundle directly from the BeamNG website. To do so, navigate to BeamNG.com and scroll to the bottom of the page where you’ll see the option to purchase.
The great thing about this option is it gives you the ability to purchase either with a credit card or using your PayPal account. Additionally, clicking the ‘More options’ link will even let you pay with Amazon or Bitcoin!
Upon purchase of the game, you will be able to download and install the game either by downloading it directly from the Humble Bundle or by redeeming a key in Steam. Unlike the Steam option, however, the Humble Bundle version of the game will not download and install updates for you automatically. Any time an update becomes available, you will need to go back to Humble Bundle and re-download the game to receive the latest update.
