We’re aware some of the community have received emails from the Ubistore/ Digital River stating IL2 Cliffs of Dover was due for dispatch on Monday 21st March and would be sent as soon as it was available.

As many of you realised these emails were sent in error, the release date of March 31st is correct and any boxed purchase of the game will be dispatched for all UK customers on Monday 28th March to arrive in time for launch.

Apologies for any confusion this may have caused

If it arrives before the official release date will we be able to install, activate and play or will it be time locked to coincide with the steam release?

I'm canceling my UBI preorder. I sure as hell won't wait for this game until April 26th. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

Given it's region locked would the DRM thingy allow a North American customer to purchase a hard copy from Europe, get it shipped to them, install it and play or would they find they'd have an install waiting for the 19th before it activated itself?

I'd like to know that too.
Is the game really region locked? If I order from let's say Just flight or Amazon UK, as a Canadian, do i get a "UK key" that allows me to activate the game on March31st or am I stuck waiting a month for the official UBi release in Canada?
I sent an e-mail to Just flight about this. I'll let you know their answer.

Let's get back on track pls.

I got speedy fast replay from Just flight http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif and they actually don't know if the game is region locked or not.

This is the answer:

"It will have a key to unlock the game and key for multiplayer use on Steam, but we have no idea if it will be region locked. All the publishers will tell us is that the European release is 31st March and the US release is 16th April"

So No idea yet. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

THANK YOU ms-kleaneasy. At last the answer to my simple question. (I am assuming activation will be locked out until 31st but that's ok).

Thankyou very much ms-kleaneasy, You have managed to get an answer to us, that several emails and a phone call to Ubishop failed in. Im guessing though that if its not shipping till the 28th, then they info I was told on the phone about my order being complete was wrong. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Never saw that coming.

Thankyou for taking the time to find out the answer, I know you must be pulling your hair out trying to sort out a mess not of your own doing.

Hi chris, that is a dodgy email m8, i worked in the parcel courier industry for 12 years , & a parcel courier sending out e-mails to you (A home address), it does not happen m8 unless you give them your mail for some reason,if you was a business & it was a regular thing then i could understand it. good move in deleting it m8.

Having been told by the retail team they're to be dispatched Monday coming, and as such haven't gone out yet I too would be sceptical of the email.

Buglord could I ask you to forward it to me please (lisa.bidder (at) blueyonder.co.uk) so I can get it checked out, if it is indeed dodgy we need to alert the team of its existence

It was sent to me, and sorry to say I deleted it as it contained a .zip 'with the information inside'

I have received mail before confirming dispatch of items but the .zip made me suspicious, sorry

Hi, I'm from Argentina, and pre-ordered from ubishop the digital version. The same day of the pre-order they've sent me a mail telling me that the release date was on march 24th.
Yesterday i've sent a mail to support and received the following as an answer.. and i would like to know if this is right.

"Thank you for contacting the Ubisoft Store.

The product that you ordered is a pre-order and has not yet been
released to the public. Although we do not have an estimated release
date, as soon as it is available your order will be promptly fulfilled
and you will be notified via email.

If you purchased via credit card, rest assured your card will not be
charged until the product has been released.

Sincerely,

Products in order:
Product SKU: Sku
Product Name: PC (Download) - IL2 STURMOVIK CLIFFS OF DOVER - en_IE
Qty Ordered: 1
Amount: 43.47€

I mean... is it certain that there's no release date yet? is it going to be available to download from the 31st? or do i have to wait up to the american version to come out?

Thank you for your time.
