buying a hard copy game and redeeming online

so target has a promotion going on where you buy one game and get one for free so im thinking about buying far cry 4 and getting dragon age inquisition for free and if i bought these two hard copies can i simply enter some type of codes to origin or uplay so that i can down load it digital.

the main reason why i want to do this is because i don't want to enter a cd everytime i want to play something. i have lots of games on steam and i tend to jump from one game to another.


p.s i'm very very lazy

  1. I know for Steam games if you install the DVD copy and it registers in Steam you'll be able to download the copy whenever you want to install it again.

    For Uplay I don't know exactly what it's policy is.

    Uplay is exactly the same, assuming you are using it on pc. If you use a game such as Assassins Creed on ps4, you will need to inset disk each time even though Uplay saves the profile.
  3. Yes PC is the only platform where you can do this. You simply enter the code given is the case, and it will be perminantly activated. You can then choose to download off the disk, and you will never need the disk again.
