While UFO: Aftershock is reasonably easy to buy in Europe, I have been made aware that this is not the case in many other parts of the world where it has not yet been released, and may never be released.  Some retailers such as Amazon.co.uk are happy to ship overseas, however there are usually additional costs such as international delivery and currency conversion charges.

It would be useful to have a thread that contains links to retailers who are prepared to accept international orders.  If possible, try to include additional information such as:

- What language the game is in.  Although English is the official language of this forum, some people would prefer to play a version in a different language.

- The final bill in your local currency once delivery and bank charges are taken into account.

- How long it took to deliver.

I believe some of the stores listed here will deliver overseas, but I can't provide much detail besides that I fear. GAME seems to ship everywhere.

According to http://www.ufo-after.../pages/buy.html

Gameplay inlcudes FREE UFO: Aftermath. Is it Possible for Strategy Core to Make a UFO: AfterMATH Compilation including the 1.4 Patch, the Rebalanced Mod, and the other SEPERATE/Independent Mods. So we can Choose which one to Install. (except for the Patch which hopefully is already INstalled in the Game.)
Not to mention the Official Modding Tools and Patches or Fixes made by other Modders.

The compilation would be hard to make I fear. Would be cool, but not likely.

As for the CE edition, it contains a deck of cards, a comic, a poster and a fan-fiction in addition to the game. No T-Shirt though.

Oh, and welcome back! :cool:

I have seen the all the UFO games available region unlocked and DRM free at Good Old Games.  GoG is recommended because they have the feelies, such as a PDF manual and usually backgrounds.  Also, GoG allows you to back up their installer to DVD (and there's a pretty interesting create-your-own DVD cover art thread).  CC Authorization is instant, and so is access to the game.  Aftershock is English only, but Afterlight is available in multiple languages there.

Also, I have seen Aftershock DRM free from Gamer's Gate.  Be aware, sometimes they have region locking.  If so, you might be able to purchase it from their European branch: Gamer's Gate UK.   Be aware, Afterlight has SecuROM activation protection at GG, but usually the staff will reset the SecuROM activations (or release a new key) if they are exhausted.  CC Authorization is also instant, but usually GG will hide the install files behind a stub-executable, probably as part of the agreement with the publishers, I imagine.  There might be ways around this, but I haven't tried to look into this.

The final place to get it is Steam.  I've seen Afterlight for as low as $2.50 during their sales.  Of course, the steam client is a necessity for that version.

I've purchased UFO from both of the first sites, and can recommend both.  Hope these links help someone.
