Hi,

I had a question about playing earlier when located in Europe.

I pre-ordered a physical copy of the game on Xbox One, but this will arrive on Thursday, because Europe.

However, my Xbox regional settings are set up as if I would be located in the US. When I go to the Xbox Store and try to pre-order the game, it says it will launch in a couple of hours.

Does anyone know if I would be able to play the game the 21st if I pre-order it digitally, or if this is just an error and my geo-location is checked when I try to launch the game tomorrow?

It's based on which region you bought it from, at a minimum. You might need to be in the US region to play before the EU release, I'm not sure, but you definitely need to buy it from a region releasing tonight if you want to play early.

I'm reading mixed results about this, so I'm just gonna keep my physical pre-order and wait. Sucks though, having to wait until Thursday while the rest can already play it for more than 2 days.
