CIS, CN and maybe some other versions as well are locked out from using English language. When you open Steam Page in this region it says "Purchases made in this region will only receive the Russian and Simplified Chinese languages.".


This is unacceptable, I don't want to play the game in any other language, other than English. Why doesn't Ubisoft at least make this version available for purchase in our region? We don't even have the option to pay more to get access to the original language and stuck with CN/RU instead.


There was a same issue with The Division, and Rainbow Six: Siege. Ubisoft is the only company that uses this practice of language locking. They don't seem to understand that Russian or Chinese may not be native language for everyone living in CIS/CN, some people might even just be here for work or other thing and not know the language at all. Or maybe some people just don't want to play in Russian.


There also doesn't seem to be any way around it AFAIK, as "Global" version wouldn't activate on RU/CIS account and vice versa. Not so "Global" anymore, huh?
