Splinter Cell Blacklist Unplayable In Certain Parts Of The World
Many PC owners of Splinter Cell Blacklist have reported being unable to launch the game.
Players hailing from regions in South East Asia, Africa and the Middle East have reportedly encountered a “pre-load complete” state upon installing the game and have been unable to progress any further. The problem appears to affect players from the following countries: South Africa, Bermuda, Kuwait, Indonesia, Egypt, Israel, the Philippines, Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Jordan, Cyprus and Serbia.
Thus far, the only workaround for the problem is to log in to a VPN and circumvent Steam’s regional locks. Doing so violates the Steam EULA and is not a recommended course of action.
