# Code Redemptions

# Overview

You can create code redemption where you distribute promotional codes that unlock items or other entitlements to your players. Codes can be redeemed in the Player Portal, Launcher, and in the game itself.

When you create a code redemption, you can choose how many codes to create, how many times each code can be redeemed, and how many times each player can redeem a code. After the code redemption has been launched, you can access the code redemption history in the Admin Portal.

Codes generated by 3rd party platforms such as Steam can also be listed for sale in your catalog.
