It was on steam but didn't have a price. Now its not on steam at all. Its out in 2 weeks and still not taking pre-orders?

Im expecting another delay incoming.

It is on steam, never went away since it appeared. You can preorder anytime you want, it does have a price. I guess ubi ppl realised that they can't go nowhere with their smelly drm.

My bad, perhaps it's only in the UK that you can't see it. Says it's not available in my region.

I can't see it on Green Man Gaming but its showing up on steam.

Only 50 dollars which is nice after so many 60 dollar games.

Steam has problems with games on some regions. I know that many times when games go up for purchase they completely vanish from the store for me. Same happens when a game is released in one region but still pending in another. Usually it takes a few days for them to bring it up. So I expect you'll see it back shortly. Price might have gone up though.

I see it fine here in Australia, can order it too with price. I already bought it from EB since I wanted that awesome statue.

I'm worried that it is on Steam. The game is for 15 year old consolized kids. All you do is sneak around stabbing the British. Beyond lame. Weak story, poor graphics for 2012, and surprisingly bad animations.

Wouldn't touch the game with a 10 foot pole.

Looks like it, I just got it on GMG since it's way cheaper anyway.

Nope, just normal edition with the deluxe edition extra DLC mission or deluxe edition with a 50% off coupon for any previous AC title.

I know DRM region locking is stupid. Operation Raccoon City doesn't show up here in Georgia so I had to have my friend in the US log into my steam account to buy it for me. What is even stupider is Dark Souls is region locked here too but I bought the cd key from Amazon, entered it on steam, and Dark Souls was added to my account and downloaded fine. Kind of defeats the point of region locking lol.

Do you have any friends in a country where the game isn't region locked that can buy the game for you? Also I think if you are gifted the game there shouldn't be any problems either.

On a plus side you can pre-order Tombraider and Hitman for £26.99 on Steam

I hear ya. Can't buy Arkham City from Steam yet I got the CD Key from Amazon and it worked perfectly fine on my Steam Account. I still don't understand why stupid developers try to force that ancient DRM on PC Gamers.

Tomb raider looks great. I'm not sure about Hitman, it doesn't look like the game i used to like.
