So, I live in the land of Oz and the metro redux doesn't become available here for a few more days. I changed my region on the xbox website to US and the game shows up/ I am able to purchase. Will I be able to play the game on my console in Oz if I purchase it online through the US store or is it region locked?

To answer my own question. No, not region locked, works fine.

Is it available to download here in Aus this week? Because I know it's been delayed at retail till next week? Really wanted to play it before Destiny.

@hrt_rulz01: Google how to purchase games from the US xbox marketplace (digital). I am playing the game now. Saved $20 off the Aus RRP as well.
