Are Keys sold by Fanatical region locked or globally redeemable?

    Follow

    If you're wondering, whether a game be activated in your country...

    Some games are region locked, meaning either that they cannot be activated at all into Steam/Uplay/EPIC/etc gamer accounts associated with specific countries or that they activate alternative (e.g. lesser violent or without specific content such as Nazi related) in specific countries.

    We will always indicate whether a game will activate in gamer accounts associated with the country you are connecting from and only allow you to add it to your cart if it will activated into a gamer account associated with the country from which you're connecting:

    If you're connecting from a country other than the one your gamer account is associated with you should check for country restrictions which might prevent you activating the game into your gamer's account.

    Game with regional restrictions

    To see any region restrictions that might apply to the game, click the "Activates in COUNTRY >" text highlighted in pink in the image below:

    If the game content is "region locked", you will see a list of specific countries in which the game content can (or sometimes can't) be activated (be aware that "Puerto Rico" will often require a different regional variant of the game to "United States"):

    If no countries are specifically listed (as in the example below) this means the game content can activated in any country:

    Additional information can sometimes be found for Steam games via https://steamdb.info/ by searching for the game's steam id number which you can find by clicking the link included in each Steam game's description to view the game on Steam.
