Assassin’s Creed 3 has just been released on the PC worldwide, but users of the Steam digital service in the UK can’t actually buy the game, nor will they be able to get the upcoming Far Cry 3, although Ubisoft has confirmed that it’s trying to clear things out with Steam owner Valve.
Steam is one of the biggest digital distribution services in the world with more than 50 million users that want to experience high quality games through the platform.
Sadly, due to some strict regulations by Steam owner Valve, some games aren’t being sold through the service.
While these included titles made by EA, like Mass Effect 3 or Battlefield 3, it seems that Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 have joined them, as Ubisoft has confirmed that Steam users from the UK aren’t able to buy these two long-awaited games.
According to the company, it’s currently in talks with Valve to remedy the issue.
“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,” Ubisoft told PCGamesN.
Until the situation is resolved, however, Ubisoft advises UK fans to get both Assassin’s Creed 3 and the upcoming Far Cry 3 from its own Uplay store or from other digital distribution services, or even from actual retail stores across the country.
“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.”
In the rest of the world, however, Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 can still be purchased via Steam.
