step by step process for windows 10:

step 1: make sure you have at least 30 gigs of free space on your C drive, or have changed your windows settings to save apps to your preferred drive (google this). also, make sure you don't have any pending major windows updates, or the windows store will force you to install them first.

step 2: hit the windows key to bring up the start bar, and type 'region', click 'region and language settings'

step 3: make your region ukraine or india depending on the country you've chosen

step 4: click the corresponding link in the op to the deal that you want

step 5: buy it and use your card with all the proper billing details EXCEPT region, which will default to ukraine/india, don't worry, that's okay (afaik)

step 6: enjoy your slow as molasses download

After starting the download end the download, change your region back to US and it will download at high speed.

SD'ers are reporting that the game is not region locked and that no VPN is required to play it.

This game can not be activated on Steam and you will not be able to utilize any Steamworks features because of it.
To see a list of games where the "cd-key" can be used to activate a game on steam, visit:
https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=7480-WUSF-3601

If you were able to buy the game but can't get the download to start and/or the download is stuck:
1) verify whether its downloading and the progress bar is just going slowly. easy way is to open task manager (ctrl+shft+esc) and click performance tab. if your internet connection is being used, it's downloading and the bar just isn't updating.
2) if it's not downloading, try using the steps in this link: http://www.windowscentral.com/fix...s-10-store For me the "wsreset" command fixed my download issues.

Thanks for posting, looks like a nice little SD challenge this morning. Anyone successfully pulled this off with W7? I am trying to grab it with Windows7 but the Ukrainian link simply reads "Get in December" when I translate the site. The link also suggests W10 is mandatory but according to Steam the minimum is W7 64 bit so I guess this is some kind of W10 lure to save you a few bucks. Need a way to get around this.

Yes it requires Windows 10. Microsoft is trying to push their store. As you said though, Steam does support past versions. W7/W8/etc.

For some reason, the icon to buy it is greyed out for me. My windows 10 says it's up to date. Doesn't even work for me when region is US.

Is this region locked though? Do you have to leave you region to Ukraine/India to play? That would be silly if there are online multiplayer features.

Can you download from a Windows 10 machine, copy the file and play on a Windows 7 machine ?

Microsoft banned a bunch of people's xbox360's and gamertags a few years ago for trying a region trick like this. I would be careful and not use your main Microsoft account for this.

Nice find OP! Worked like a charm. I switched my region back after the download started and it is going decently faster now.
