    “The update can now be obtained via Steam”
    Non steam game version will be able to get this update? Or it´s only for the steam version?
    For the steam version to run, steam must be opened and connected on the internet?
    If I have no internet connection I will not be able to play?

      The DX11 Beta is only available via Steam and generaly speaking, non Steam rF2 will not get supported/updated in the future but you can still play your last non steam build. And no, you don’t need to to be conntected to the internet to run Steam or rF2, only to get the updates and content from Steam workshop. You can play in offline mode just fine.

      Probably you should convert your version to Steam, if you bought it you can do that. I did it with mine and it makes life much easier, even though I’m not a Steam fan it does make stuff easier to do.

      If you haven’t gotten your Steam key and aren’t upset about repurchasing your game, it’s 15.99 in the current sale.
