Weird, it shows as unavailable here in Europe. I see it's available if I change my region to US, but clicking 'get' just launches the store.
Change region to en-us in the url, add the game to your cart, then go to checkout, buy the game *flies away*

EDIT
Ok maybe i'm going crazy and wasn't it doing correctly, that seems to also work. The solution I described works too so i'll leave it here in case people rather use that one.


Doesn't work. You'll have to change your region in the PC setting to the US, as when clicking the button it opens the Microsoft Store App instead of buying the regular way, like mrbellek said. The Windows Store App uses your PC region setting so that will show it's not available in the EU.

I normally also just change the region in the url, but in this case, because it opens the Microsoft Store app, you'll have to change the settings in your PC.


So:
Go to settings > Time and Language > Country/Region and change the top drop down menu to the US. Press get in the marketplace, it opens the US Microsoft Store App, and you'll be able to download it. Set your region back to what you want it to after it started downloading and you're set.

You can also just go to en-us, add it to the cart, then checkout the cart (with one item)

I already own it, but it's showing as having a discount of $49.99 on the en-us page and a discount of £34.99 on the en-gb page so it looks like it's free on those stores too... be good if someone could confirm though
Yours sincerely, TG

I don't own the content. Shows up full price in those two regions for me, but free in Russia if you had a Russian payment system. I'll pass on this one. Too risky.

Does anyone know why the Freebie thread went from 80 pages of posts to 74 just this week?

A quick look at them makes it look like they are all obtainable with the free version, but I can't say for sure.

Looks like it's all available to me. There's an achievement tied to getting an outfit, but thre's an event going on until the 28th where you can get scraps by playing anything except unranked PvP.
