I live in Norway and just stopped playing it. It showed up about the same time as in the US for me, and I downloaded it (slowly) shortly after that.

Must be specific EU regions then, which is a shame.

I was going to buy trenched on a US account but now I can't be bothered, it'll come me more and I just don't want to give microsoft more money because they messed up the cert in the UK. If this is pegi's doing i'm going to ....um....write an angry post about it. SO. THERE.

Have you tried this yourself? It's an unnecessary hassle but I'm willing to go through it if it works.

Maybe just try the trail. Then unlock from your uk account?
#15 Posted by BinaryDragon (637 posts) -

@mracoon: you can buy 1600 points on amazon, or you can set up a paypal account to pay for it. but it's going to cost you more to do that. I've decide I'm not going to pay MORE to MS for there cock up. I'm going to be annoyed and sulk and ill just wait.

It doesn't work, already tried that. you can play the trail on a UK account you just can't buy it using a UK account it has to be bought with a US account which means you'll have to buy any dlc with that account and have it online at all times, if your internet dies you won't be able to play trenched.

Wow that sucks and this whole situation is fucked.

Nice of them to give us this news on the day it's supposed to be released. Especially since this is the kind of thing I'm sure they knew about far in advance.

#19 Posted by GideonAmos (174 posts) -

well, fuuuudge. I hope this will be resolved when I'm back home. Can't wait to play Trenched!

#20 Posted by mracoon (4914 posts) -

Ok, I've created a fake US account using Xbox.com and downloaded the trial version of Trenched. I'm going to retrieve that account using my 360 and it should download the trial and then I'll play it with my normal account and unlock it (as I already have points on that). Let's see if this works.

Hate to break it to you, but thaat isn't going to work, you'll be able to play the trail, but cant buy it using a uk account.

I'm going to wait for it to be released properly then. I'm not putting money into a dummy account just for one game.

The game is out in Norway so it can't be a PEGI issue.

Damn, sucks to hear Europe got shafted on this one. I was already prepared for a delay here in Aus, there usually is, but it actually appeared on time for once. 
 
And by on time I mean 9pm on the release date, but timezones whaddya do.

yeah me too, would have been nice if they'd told us in advance.
#33 Posted by MonkfishEsq (221 posts) -

Isn't this the kind of thing they're supposed to square y'know, before the release date? Fuck sake :(

#34 Posted by Alpha1 (253 posts) -

The response I got from Xbox support from twitter after asking who fault this is Xbox or double fine

We are currently investigating why it may not be available in your region currently

Does anyone know why MS won't let you dl items from other regions?

Because that would make sense.

Germany's fault maybe? They have they're videogame Nazi's censored and even though this is post WW1 could a similar thing apply?

If that was the case it would have been released everywhere except Germany.

#42 Posted by DarkbeatDK (1191 posts) -

Yeah I'm from Denmark and we don't have it either, even though Norway does and we usually get game releases together as a sort of "Scandinavian" region.

Weird...

#43 Posted by CarpetRemnant (369 posts) -

This is total fucking bullshit, fuck this. Thanks for letting everyone know in advance, dickshits.

there are no nazi's in this game, they have no difficulty speaking of WW1

#45 Posted by Gutterkisser (135 posts) -

So the US is first to the fight, Australia/NZ have joined, and Europe are the reluctant latecomers - this release is WW1 in reverse.

#46 Posted by DarkbeatDK (1191 posts) -

Maybe it's an Xbox approval thing like what they talked about on the day 1 podcast from E3?

They have very strict certification rules after all. I had a friend working on Kane & Lynch 2 who had to proof-read all text in multiplayer to make sure that all instances of the word "Xbox LIVE" had LIVE in caps, so it wouldn't get dismissed by their certification office.

Releasing games on Xbox sounds like taking a drivers exam every time.

#47 Posted by Gutterkisser (135 posts) -

If that's the case it really highlights how dated/flawed the approval process is for digital content, considering the game is already out in other continents.

#48 Edited by MattyFTM (14244 posts) -

I've been thinking about why it may have been delayed. You know the saluting system? Maybe they put in an option for a Nazi salute (maybe accidentally, not realizing what a Nazi salute exactly is, or maybe as some sort of joke) and that's why it's not been released. Nazi symbolism is still banned in much of Europe & is a pretty sensitive issue. That could certainly lead to the game being delayed.

Or maybe I'm barking completely up the wrong tree. In fact, I'm probably completely barking up the wrong tree.

#49 Posted by MonkfishEsq (221 posts) -

If that were the case though, wouldn't PEGI or whoever have shot it down outright the moment they saw it? The US/EU version's can't be any different from each other. It's not like someone kicked out the power cable while they were uploading it. "delayed in some regions" is total bullshit. Because it's delayed in the whole of Europe. Bastard Norwegians not being in the EU...
