I'm considering purchasing PF overseas from England (I live in Texas, USA) and to have it priority shipped to my home as the European release is before the U.S. release. My question is however are there ANY differences between the U.S. and English-European versions of PF and will it run on my machine?

Thanks!

Not sure so don't quote me on this, as I could be wrong and usually am. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I believe it should run fine, but as with other games from Europe, the box art will be different. If it's coming from England fine. Any other country and the language could be different too. That should be the only differences.

I live in the SF Bay Area and am also thinking about ordering from overseas. Does anyone know of a good European company where I can order FB?

Thanks for the reply GT182. I figured the box art would be different. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Anyone else comment?

Platypus65, probably best bet is Amazon.UK?

Unless Ubi/1C changed their release policy, PF will be just like AEP... multilanguage. And this means that the only difference between european PF and US PF is that WE in europe get it two weeks earlier http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif .

Ok, and the language on the box and in the manual, depending on which country you order from.

I hope this answers your question, at least partially.

I would try amazon.co.uk

was going to suggest www.play.com (http://www.play.com) but they dont deliver to the USA.

play.com have PF as 24.99 with free delivery on ALL items, not bad.

I live in Switzerland and the y deliver from the UK to here for free too, can't argue with that.

We can get ~all~ of the Euro FP copies shipped over here, leaving Euro store shelves bare. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif

My Fellow Ussians, as Reagan would say, let them enjoy "2 weeks" of being First for a change. Don't feel too bad, NZ will get their FP in June, "2 seasons" late, as always.

If you order it from England, the only thing different will be the box art. Contents will be the same. If you order elsewhere from Western Europe you'll also get a non-English manual, but the disk contents will be the same.

If you order from Russia however it'll all be in Russian. I've myself had problems even running an installer on a Russian version of FB on my non-Russian Windows version, but I really don't know if the same will be the case. In other words, don't get the Russian version for anything other than a completely different cool box art:

You guys are nuts! They will charge you about $20+ USD to ship from there to here and that means you'll pay almost $60 USD for the game!

It aint that good!
