    Steam Regions and Purchases

    I'd like to know a few things regarding this matter.
    I know for a fact that steam has regional prices and so buying in another country or in other means might get you a better deal.
    However, I'd like to know if there's any risks doing so, i.e. If I use a proxy to make steam believe I live in Russia to pay a much better price.

    If there's no risks with this, if one would do as such, would the game also be regional and come with the language of the region purchased or would it be international and I'd still be able to play it in a language that I can understand?

    Depends on the game; some are region-locked, some aren't.
    You can check here:

    Finds you the best price, and checks if it's locked.

    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    So, just to be sure @Aborted
    After using that website, it said region free (I'm trying to buy Project Zomboid)
    Is Project Zomboid region free? Could you confirm, so I don't fuck up.

    I read that there's a risk that my entire account might be suspended if I purchase it for myself outside of the region.
    How big of a risk is that?

    Don't quite feel like losing hundreds of games just to save half the price of one game.

    You can't even do that.
    You'ill get an error when tryin to complete the transaction.

    I've contacted steam support last few months and this was thier response:


    If it works for you, please tell.

    Yeah, I noticed that too while I tried.
    Figured it was because I simply used the "?cc=ru" after the store instead of a proxy.

    I assume I'll have to find someone that could help me.
    Any volunteers?
