Hm, I have tested going to the page. It read my country ok, Brazil, and the page was presented in English.

Well, it not's that bad, if you consider. Mine should be in Portuguese, because English is not an official language around here. ^^

PandaTar, am disappointed that you even contemplated buying this at the preorder phase! Please do not give Ubisoft any ideas! They must earn their money after producing a good product.

I tested the page to help the OP check if there was an issue with the language. It's been months since I decided not to buy the game and it has not changed at all, in fact, I'm less and less inclined even to check on news on H7, so you read me completely wrong.

For me, whenever I go into Ubi's shop it automatically detects my location and selects the language from that. You can't change the location either, since it's needed for legal reasons. The result is this weirdness.

One does not simply pre-order.

I am always outraged by this "smart" web design, when web-sites decide the content for you and you have no way to get what you actually want.

If I log in from Germany and want to read content in Spanish - that's my problem, just give it to me. Yes, sometimes I need a British E-Bay when I am not in Britain, don't switch me to local version, just shut up and deal with it! That's why you have all those different addresses! :grumpy:

The only way around I found is installing one of so called "VPN addons" to my web browser and manually selecting the country I want to seem to log on from. For FF I use Hola. Most of the time I keep it off, but when I need to log on "from US" to get content in English - it's just couple clicks away.

Accessing them by using Tor avoids that kind of detection?

Suit Supply (a Netherlands company) does this at their online store preventing anyone outside country from entering their outlet store. I heard if you use vpn to enter and try to ship outside of NL, the price reverts back to foreigner tier. 8|
