Two of Ubisoft's biggest games for the year—and indeed, two of the bigger PC releases for the year—are Assassin's Creed III and Far Cry 3. So it's weird that, unlike most other places on Earth, neither is yet available on the UK's Steam servers.

"We've been in discussions with Valve about Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3, but for the time being the games are not available via Steam in the UK," an Ubisoft rep told PCGamesN.

"In the meantime, UK customers wishing to purchase either of these games can do so by visiting the Uplay store, our retail partners or other digital distributors. Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 are available on Steam in other regions outside the UK."

What's weird about this is that it's not an EA-like situation where the publisher is pulling their games so they can force customers to buy them on their own store, in this case Ubisoft's Uplay. As the rep says, my copy of Assassin's Creed III is on Steam, and Far Cry 3 is also available for preorder. Just like they are for everyone else on Earth who doesn't live in the UK.
