post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i wanted to buy Far Cry 3 today and to my disappointment it's not on Steam store in UK , this leads me to my question , if i ask one of my friends in US to buy it for me and send it as a gift will it work ?
I'd really like to have in on Steam and i heard it will work if done this way , anyone done that before or with FC3 ?

It's not out yet here in the US either. Dec. 4th is the release date for us Americans.

I don't think it's going to be on steam for launch. I purchased my 7950 and was given a free copy of Far Cry 3 but the code is for Uplay as where the other games I received were all for steam. They seem to have an issue with both Assassins Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 at the moment. An alternative you could do is get someone from the US to gift it to you.

Here is some more information about the Valve and Ubisoft problem:

The gift thing should work, I've done it with other games before. It's just finding someone you trust to send it to you.

I just read this on the Steam forum!
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I've bumped in to a little problem - Help?
As I've started to do recently, I decided to purchase my Far Cry 3 code from a 3rd Party website and I have used this for previous games so I thought it'd be fine. But I hit a bump in the road when I found out that for some reason Far Cry 3 is not available in the UK, I may have been under a rock and should've known this but alas I did not.

So I decided to download uPlay to see if I could get it through that, but alas they do not seem to allow you to activate Ubisoft products at all endless you purchase it directly through their store - I could be wrong but I did not see any options and I don't really like uPlay anyway.

So my question to those of you who are more informed than I, is what can I do, with attempting to return my product key being the last on the list.

Thanks for your time.

But then I found the game on this site! Has anyone here ever used gamesload?
Do we download the game directlly from them?

I just want the game mad.gif

Edit
I just bought the game from Gamesload! And I'm downloading right now
