Is FM7 region locked?

Hello.

I am trying to purchase FM7 digital version through Amazon UK, but when I try to proceed to checkout, I am told that this item is only available to customers inside UK.
My country doesn’t have an Amazon, so I can’t buy a “local” version.

Is FM 7 region locked? Are Xbox One games region locked?

Despite the date, that’s probably still true, and you should still be able to redeem a digital code you obtain. However, if Amazon won’t sell it, that’s probably a question for Amazon.

Should you not be able to download direct from xbox? Either via the link below or through the xbox itself

You should be able to buy it from the Windows Store. It will work both on PC and Xbox.

It’s an issue with Amazon.

No Xbox One or even Xbox backward compatible games are region locked. What’s happening is most likely it is not yet available for pre-ordering in the UK. That is the only logical conclusion I can come to because as I said, no current generation console games are region-locked. Thing of the past.

The payment method used can cause this if a card is used and the card billing address is outside the UK…

Although further checking suggests that they are now allowing this for some countries…

So were you able to buy it and redeem it in the end? I wanna do the same but do t wanna be stuck with a dud code.
