Get region restricted error? http://store.steampo...com/app/220240/
Because I'm not from US and can visit it without problems.

Far Cry 3 is available worldwide. You shouldn't have any issues finding it on the European store. I just checked and it was made available on Steam on 29th November.

The Steam store automatically redirects me to the European site regardless of the link, and the site tells me that I can buy it for 50 euros, and have had the ability to do so since 29th November. I wonder why you guys have to wait another couple of days...weird.

im not sure intrinsica. probably some dispute between UBI uk and Steam uk no doubt! which is abscure, since i really want to buy it! but am unable.... this just encourages piracy. as i'll be honest, im very tempted to torrent it now since i just want to play it now.... I wont though. but tempted! Grrr

Ah, having just gone and checked it looks like it'll be released in the UK on December 4th. The developers wanted to make some last-minute changes before releasing it.

So you only have to wait 2 days! Even if I bought it today I wouldn't be able to play it until sometime next week, so count yourself lucky! :p

I'm from the UK and I bought it from here: GameKeys4U.net

It activates on Steam and it's playable now, so there's no waiting for the North America release. The website sounds dodgy but it checks out on TrustPilot and both my brother and I bought Far Cry 3 from there, so I'm happy to recommend it. The process wasn't instant but I received the key within 10hrs; my brother received his within an hour. As always, if you don't feel comfortable with the website then don't use it.

It's annoying that Ubisoft messed about with the UK Steam release again, just like it did with Far Cry 2.

Unfortunately, Ubisoft can't put their latest games on the UK store in Steam due to a contract they have with a UK retailer which prevents them. (source: http://forums.ubi.co...121#post8749121)
Assassin's Creed 3 is the same. :)

It seems to just gift it from another region and international gifting is allowed by Steam's User Agreement. It's not a region restricted copy - for instance, Russian versions are usually restricted due to their lower prices - and it's all on the up-and-up.

So yes, it's legitimate if that's what you're asking. I came across the website on the Steam forums, so if it was a dodgy website I would have expected the link to be blocked.

I actually got a free copy with my graphics card, if anyone wants the serial I can give it for free. I have never used it. Not sure if the download link can be shared but will check.
