***Dead Deal***

 

On Russian Uplay Store, Tropico 5 Pre-order plus 2 free games (Anno 1404 Gold and Port Royale 3) are 6,29 руб which is around $0.18 (yes, 18 cents!)

 

It has been like this for a few hours now but they will fix it soon I guess.

 

Uplay is out of keys for Anno Gold and Port Royale 3 but they should soon fulfill the orders.

 

Now, nobody knows whether Tropico 5 will have any language restrictions or not but for 18 cents it is well worth it. :D

 

Of course you need to use VPN or proxy to do it and DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.

 

Edit: You can also use coupon code: "10thanks" for an additional whopping 10% off! (this is cheap ASS gamer after all) :D

It is at our own risk because it might not be region free?

Allow me to reiterate:

 

Link to the Steam Database entry for Tropico 5

http://steamdb.info/sub/32028/

 

I'm assuming territory not set means no region restriction?

this would activate on uplay only though I believe not steam since it through ubisoft. I know with tropico 4 released they had different versions which activated different way so the site you referenced could be the steam version if it exist but this is through uplay

Yeah good point.  Through googling I couldn't find anything that said Steam DRM required so likely it will be available on a slew of clients.

 

On the plus side, it is coming to SteamOS for Linux.

No, same address and account. Processing means that there are currently no codes for the 2 free games (you will get the codes and games will appear in library eventually) and also because Tropico 5 is still in pre-order. It will show: Order completed when the game is released.

 

If we do manage to get it, will the game be in Russian? Lol

We don't know that yet but it is highly unlikely. Even the Russian Steam version for the game is only locked for addint to library but when it is added, it is multi language and region free. 

 

But to be honest, for ¢18, I'll take it even if it was in Gibberish :D

Thanks for the info. When I translate my email order page, the currency changes from 6.29 py6 to 6.29 AUD. Hopefully that's just an issue with the chrome translator and not actual Australian currency, but that still wouldn't be too bad.

It's hard to tell but there's a currency drop down and it says $18.90 USD or 15.30 Eur.

 

Even though Ubi is a reputable company I still don't like that I have to give them my CC.  And there's no USA for country I don't think so what did you guys select there?

 

Edit- I put Guam since that's what people in reddit seemed to be doing I guess.

 

Edit Edit- 18 cent pending charge so we shall see.

Google translate does it wrong but I've checked my bank and it charged me 1.30 EGP (Egyptian Pounds) and this is indeed ¢18

 

I find it weird though that when completing the order list of countries is huge and not just RU/CIS countries which also indicates a region free purchase :D

Yes, price error is only there with RUB.

 

My payment info is saved on my Uplay account so it still showed my address and Egypt as my country. I didn't have to change anything.

Yeah I saw that.  Pretty sure everyone knows how I feel about DRI.

 

Hope I don't have to use a proxy and boot up a Russian version of the client to play the game. :rofl:

I just used Chrome, found a list of Russian proxy servers, set the proxy and did it.

Haven't tried, but considering Steam actively looks for and bans accounts that do that (last I checked), I don't think I will.

Yeah I wouldn't do that for Steam, it's just an easy way to grab stuff off these regional deals for region free games. Like was mentioned messing around with Steam or MS on region stuff is a good way to get banned.
