I just did this and seemed to work, i was too late for the free helm in TF2 :rolleyes: thou that wasnt the reason for me pre-ordering.

Ok what you can do is send the money to a friend (make sure he is trust worthy) who lives outside the UK via let's say Pay Pal?

They can then purchase the game as a gift for you.

Job done Enjoy! ;)

So, your "solution" is to get someone to "gift" the game to you. (minus excess details)

I think many people have worked this out already

you can also create a new account and set it's location to USA and gift it to yourself... altough that still sounds risky to me

won't work. steam will detect your ip and origin of credit card/paypal etc.

the real solution is to pressure the crappy publishers who caved in to retail demands in the uk.

Guys, this thread is 3 months old. Anyone living in UK couldn't pre-order back then so stop being a smartass.
