Home Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts. Change language. Install Steam. Splodge View Profile View Posts. Hi, I am currently visiting Singapore I live in the UK and I would like to buy a game which is on offer and will not be on offer when I return. I am wondering whether it will be region locked and will I be charged a currency exchange rate charge. Thanks P. Showing 1 - 14 of 14 comments. If your store region is set properly to the UK, you'll be just fine.

How do I do that, and can I play it in Singapore? Thanks for the quick reply. From your account details page and yes. Originally posted by Splodge :. Almost right. Originally posted by ReBoot :. Originally posted by Shiki Ryougi :.

I'm sims mrs nesbitt this question as I'm afraid those games could be region locked when I get back to Ireland and I end up wasting my money. This issue isn't common, but it has happened on rare occasions. If you also know a good place link eat here, let me know :p.

Now buiyng should be able to purchase games in Euros as usual. Originally posted by Shiki Ryougi :. Our Commitment to Responding to Meta and Moderators. It's the same story. Steam, one of the sole bastions of sanity when it comes to digital games distribution, has enabled region locking on games.

Email Required, but never shown. Thanks P. So what you need to do is add your country's store code to the URL.

You should contact the friend who gave you the gift to return it or have them ask for a refund. Displaying 1 to 8 of 8 results. Region restrictions on CD Keys vary by each individual publisher. Problem with Steam? Post as a guest Name.
