Will need to be registered using a VPN, but after that you do not need a VPN and can select Europe region and play as normal.

I appreciate this will not be for everyone - but it is the cheapest way I can see to get a PC version pre-order and be playable in the UK on Europe Servers.

Blue post confirms this - us.battle.net/for…605

Also 8% on Quidco

Tempted to go for this, but I need a GPU anyway and with the promotion back on for a free copy with a 1080/1080Ti kind of in an iffy position.

Depends what kind of gaming you do - i'm on 1920x1080 so a GTX1060 more than suffices ... if you are going for multi-monitor and/or 4k then GTX1080 is an awesome buy.

Has anyone on here tried this?

Sure this will work with the battle net client?

I'm not the one to usually say this as i'm all for circumventing regional pricing/evading VAT on digital goods however...
I wouldn't bother using a VPN with Blizzard for the sake of a few quid, i'm sure the European version has been available for around £30 in numerous places including CD-Keys.
People bought Diablo 3 on the cheap from Russia at launch, They were later restricted to a Russian only game with no other language choices.

Yes - as per the blue post I linked to in the description. Need to register the key on Battle.net with VPN then choose any realm (same as Diablo, etc)

Would appreciate a link to Europe version for £30

You can't even activate it with a normal European Battle Net account, Blizzard/Bungie require you to have an account in the region you're using a code with. For example this will require an Asian Blizzard account, VPN's will not bypass that.

Sorry, but that is not correct.

so you have redeemed your code? No, so how can you prove this?

It appears the boat has sailed, everyone is gouging for console prices given the imminent release.
CD Keys were previously selling for £32.99

The Game Collection are selling for £36.95 with a free ghost bottle opener.
GreenManGaming are selling digital for £38.24

Cba doing any more legwork on it. Will probably be a few cheap copies floating around Ebay due to the Nvidia GTX promotion restarting and if you dont urgently want a copy the price will drop when the DLC expansions start to hit.

I wouldn't want to risk getting stuck on APAC servers. Destiny can be a pain on local servers.

That link you posted also did not confirm it will work, it just said what they think but ask Bungie as it is their game.

Not bothered in discounts on this personally, i will be buying digital deluxe edition for £90. a fair price to pay given i've played the last game for 3 years.
On Xbox alone i've played 415 hours of Destiny 1 which equates to around 22P per hour played.

I would hope, as the poster, you would have a bit more proof to support that it works, than someone saying it won't.

Macdory25 m ago

Yes it is, we've seen the issue with work and people are unable to redeem it unless they have a specific Battle Net account. For example one guy had a Canada account and was now in the UK, but he was not able to activate a key that should normally work for him.

Same would apply here. You have no idea what you're talking about, VPN's do not work. You would need a VPN + Asian Battle Net account.

Blizzard regions are the player's selected environment through which they are accepting to play with other players. Players may only play with other players who have selected the same region, and cannot join the games or activities of players in other regions. The player's selected region will also limit who appears in-game in a player's Friends Lists and Clan Roster.

When players launch Destiny 2 from the Blizzard desktop application, they will have the option to select their region of play. If the player takes no action to change their region, it will match the default region of the player's Blizzard account.

Players who wish to change their Blizzard region may do so by closing the Destiny 2 application, visiting the Destiny 2 landing page in the Blizzard desktop application, and selecting their desired region from the drop down above "Play".

The comment concerned didn't talk about changing regions to play on a different one. It said that you can't activate a Asian key on a European account, even with a VPN. If you've actually done that without a problem, that's good - but that's why someone asked that question.

The blue post doesn't 100% confirm anything. He says that's what he's been told but to check with Bungie for confirmation. Just saying.

Because this is CD keys, I'm not sure if this will compare, but, I bought Overwatch (via a HUKD post - hotukdeals.com/dea…742) from the Taiwan Blizzard (web) store and I have it registered to my EU account. A VPN was involved!

So, again, I can't be 100% sure how this will compare to this particular deal. However, it's possible that using a VPN with blizzard's app may yield a similar result.

you really cant as you are just making assumptions based off an ambiguous forum post, can you guarantee it will work as CDKeys are under no obligation to refund if you are wrong since they clearly state the region.

You are also making an assumption without any evidence to substantiate your claim. However, as pointed out above by @imduric, what you claim has not happened with Overwatch, and isn't the case for all of the other Blizzard games. I have posted links which clearly says that you can switch servers between US, APAC and Europe with any region version of the game from both Bungie and Blizzard.

The only question remaining is can you attach this code to your Europe account or will you have to make a new APAC account - either way, you will still be able to play on the European servers, and all previous experiences point to you being able to add it to your European account in any case.

Really not seeing the problem.

I was looking at other prices for Destiny 2, and I came across this one selling GTX1080 keys - you need to log into the game via GeForce Experience to prove you have the correct card so it is a different product to the one listed here, but please read the comments. People have used a VPN to activate the game on their Blizzard account and are now pre-loading it with no issues after activation. It is the same APAC region as this post, just that this one isn't tied to having a GTX1080.

So this is going hot but the deal few days ago for the game with a bottle opener worth 10 quid for total of 36 quid goes cold? Hukd is stupid at times.

A bottle opener worth £10, what a steal. Everyone wants that and not the cheaper version without the clearly priced £10 bottle opener.

Price is 33.99 now

Wasted money because of this, don't bother it doesn't work tried 3 different VPN's.

This worked for me: VPN to Singapore, create a new battle.net account (Battle.net here is in English and no verification needed), redeem key, disconnect VPN, load battle.net launcher, sign into new account on Europe servers and you can install the game. Not tested launching into game yet, but hopefully will be fine
Edit - Game works fine
