Assassin’s Creed 3, Far Cry 3 absent from UK Steam storefront

A mysterious issue has left UK PC gamers quite disgruntled this week to discover that neither Assassin’s Creed 3 nor Far Cry 3 are available on Steam in their territory. It’s not at all clear why the games aren’t listed on the store, when they utilise Steamworks DRM and are available in other territories. Ubisoft told PCGamesN that other options are available.

“We’ve been in discussions with Valve about Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3, but for the time being the games are not available via Steam in the UK. In the meantime, UK customers wishing to purchase either of these games can do so by visiting the Uplay store, our retail partners or other digital distributors. Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 are available on Steam in other regions outside the UK,” a statement advised.

Like EA, Ubisoft has said in the past that it hasn’t given up on Steam and continues to negotiate with Valve to find a way to keep its games on the service. In this case, the territorial restriction makes the whole thing particularly mysterious and inconvenient. Isn’t it refreshing to read about a whole nation being messed about and have it not be Australia? I thought so.

This has been common for a while now especially with THQ titles.

Which is ironic. As THQ could do with every single sale/penny right now.
