I think now I know how Europe feels when NA gets the games a few days to a week earlier... I have it pre-ordered (free with that SSD, which is awesome BTW), but that leaked release is looking mighty tempting. Not sure I can last 6 more days!

You could always VPN using a European IP address and still download from Steam from a US server. That's what is happening to me now. I'm in Afghanistan, the ISP is satellite to Germany, and my Steam shows up in English, but with Deutsche marks as the currency. Oh, and I'm loading it up now. Granted, it's slow as hell and the war may be over before I get all of it. =)

GMG sent me my key and download link today. The Capsule wouldn't let me install it so I just extracted the files from the downloaded zip and installed the game manually. Activated the game on Uplay and it works fine.

Only skimmed the TB video, but he seems to be raving about it.

I'm in the odd position where, for the first time in years a UBI game looks interesting.
