VyprVPN manages to make it to the list with flying colors. Over 1, VPN servers are scattered throughout the world, in more than 50 countries globally.

One of the dilemmas as to whether or not you should be using VPN on Steam is the subscriber agreement on their official website. According to that, you agree with the following: If you do this, we may terminate your access to your Account. This does not mean that you will be banned automatically for using VPN; you just take a risk. That being said, nobody can disagree with the fact that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages and any potential risk.

One of the ways for you to protect yourself, though, is the use of an anonymous payment method for games you purchase. This means that you can use Bitcoin, so as not to raise any eyebrows when buying stuff online. If you appear to be located in the US and pay using a Spanish credit card or bank account info, you may get into trouble.

But, when using Bitcoin or even PayPal, such a problem does not come up. Another trick would be to stick to the free games on Steam. This way, you would not be drawing much attention to your Steam account. Have you ever used any of the 5 best VPNs for Steam that we have listed? If so, share your feedback with us.

Also don't use all-caps. Promote discussion, not attacks. Posts promoting or facilitating piracy in any way will be removed. Piracy is a permanent ban, no warnings.

First off, your gonna go to: Now that you have installed it. Now, even though your connected to VPN, steam will still have the same countdown timer like before.

However, if you head over to google, type Fallout 4 Steam, and access the store page via your browser, you will now see the correct timer for the release. When that timer is closing in on it's release, start up steam with the VPN Active, and shit will start to download.

Yes, even though the timer for steam itself is wrong. After unlocking the game, switch to offline mode, disable the VPN and play and have fun! Steam normally doesn't give a shit about people unlocking the game early, however if they do crack down on it for some unlikley reason, then don't cry to me. Do i need to stay in VPN forever? No, only to unlock the game, launch it, then put steam into offline mode.

Don't restart your computer though until the game is released in your region. Can't connect to steam via VPN? On Freedome's Twitter it says they are experiencing high traffic in AU probably due to this. Perhaps try a different VPN if you can find one. In my opinion, if people do get banned for this, then you know something is very wrong with this industry. Building up ungodly amounts of hype and then shooting down paying customers who simply can't bear to wait due to the silly concept of timezones in times of digital distribution - that would just be incredibly low.

But you never know. If someone does end up getting banned because of this, please let us know about it. Why are you all afraid?

You only get banned for VPN if you cheat with shop prices, exp. I use VPN and steam for more than 5 years now, if you could be banned for that, i would have been already. That would be suspicious. I havent tried to buy anything cheaper, since i have enough money and why risk everything i have? Didn't get banned by buying, activating installing and playing all 4 required a VPN Wolfenstein in Germany, though I guess it wasn't cheaper than not available ;.

Do you normally stay online? Do you think going offline after unlocking is needed or if I keep the VPN on I'll be fine keeping steam online. People are a bit more wary because it is still against the rules and there's a chance Steam could ban them.

I never got banned or even a notice. But i also only used it once to buy a game from another country, Dead Island since it is indicated here in germany. Does the game need to be in online mode to connect to the pip boy app? I'd assume it would. Which would be the only real reason to not then go into offline mode. Just my educated guess: D But i think as long as you can connect to your pc it should be fine, i dont think you need to be online in steam for that to work, but i can be wrong, never used anything like this.

I know several people who are not going to "chance" a permaban and are waiting an extra hours in the US. I can understand a ban for cheating the region pricing, I mean i understand why they do it, i still don't think it's morally right. But there's no logic in them banning people just using it to unlock a game early. I think the reason they do staggered releases might be to limit traffic on the server. Especially for MP games, and there's always a Day1 patch.

As you and i already mentioned, as long as you dont buy anything with a vpn, you should be fine. And i think they do staggered release mostly because everyone should get it around the same time, decent time of day, not too many days early or late, along these lines, and yes maybe even for server purposes: I don't get why you get banned for buying with a VPN when you can easily just buy foreign keys from places like Green Man Gaming to avoid region pricing.

You can get banned for some of those keys but that is rare. Will the day 1 patch automatically install? Or do I have to manually hit the play button. If you have auto update on, yes it will isntall the moment is has a que space, otherwise you need to start it for yourself. Hehe i use HideMyAss They have a lot of countries, a good price and speed, i am really happy with what i got there, so i never changed it: It's actually kinda tricky to set up a separate currency account in steam.

Or at the very least, it's not something you can do by accident. If your worried, go on to steam with a VPN enabled, and attempt to update one of your already existing games. If it works, you should be golden come Fallout day.

Plus, by default Steam has auto updating on and a lot of people use VPNs all of the time while steam is running for other things. If you live in Russia it should be fine. They just don't want people using VPN's to buy games at lower prices. Are people really this scared of being banned? It would be shitty business practice to terminate hundreds, if not thousands of accounts of long term customers simply because they thought they should be able to play a game they've already purchased at the same time Outback Jack gets to play it.

If you ask me, its a form of discrimination. Outback jack has such a slow internet connection that he wouldn't have been able to download it in time in the first place I reckon. Sydney Brittany on the other hand Thanks to the botched NBN rollout, outback Jack has a nice speedy fibre optic link whilst the rest of us are still stuck with copper. The Cities are getting it in the next 18 months, but that's too late for Fallout so it's basically useless anyway.

I feel bad for you man my average download speed on steam is What are you using aol? Learn to talk like Outback Jack. It's in violation of the Steam ToS, they are within their right to ban people for doing this. Lol you wont get banned. Its been existing for years. People buy Russian CS: Go keys and activate them for 3 bucks.

I've activated a few Russian games on my account and nothing has happened. Problems only arise if you try and buy games off the store in another country.

I know a lot of people who bought keys to full rage on. I found a fix for it. You need to disable the VPN and login normally. It will say that someone tried to login from AUS and you say it was you. Then turn the VPN back on and it will let you connect. I'm connected to Melbourne, but when I try to open steam up I get "could not connect to the steam network. I have two options, retry and start in offline mode.

Offline mode works, but will it be able to install from the offline mode? I have no idea what you mean by that update. I have nothing that says anything about AUS trying to login, and still can't connect. Is this because you had Steam Guard enabled? I wonder if you would get that same effect if you just turned off steam guard before logging out and connecting with the VPN? By the time I get up on Monday the Vpn trick will have been going on for a good hours. If no one has been banned I will do it lol.

People do this every big release, I've done it for several myself and never had an issue. Though I won't be doing it this time because I'm going to be in the air above the Pacific when the game comes out. Has it been on the front page of reddit for every major release? I heard about this vpn trick about a week ago and was definitely going to do it but now it seems like everyone on reddit knows so I'm hesitant. Its made the front page quite a few times, yeah.

Pretty sure Witcher 3 was the last time I saw it on the front page. You need to make an account, install the client, log into the client, select your Steam. It will fail and tell you to start the "game" manually. Start Steam and it will route it through WTfast. Looks like a redditor posted this on the subreddit and it's getting upvoted to the top.

WTFast has been hugged by Reddit, and the account creation and verification is taking some time. For anyone still checking this thread, it looks like the game is now region locked, so even if you do manage to connect you will not be able to unpack, unless you do this, which seems to be working: If using an Australian VPN is in any way representative of using Australian internet, I genuinely feel sorry for you poor fucks.

Honestly it makes me sick that even have to resort to this. It's already in stores. I will gladly use a VPN to have access to something I should've had access to 4 days ago, when the files were placed on my fucking computer.

It's so that the game has time to be shipped to stores and individuals across the country by the time the release date hits. Some stores may receive it earlier, that's just the nature of the concept. The PC version is being withheld so as to make sure everyone gets at at the same time and keep the riots to a minimum. Of course, there's a lot more to it than this, but it's just a generalization.

I get that it's midnight on the tenth in 6 hours in Australia. But the game is still on my computer in NA right now, just like anyone in Australia. Having to violate the ToS to access my own fucking game is pretty dumb. Just release it all at the same instant, regardless of timezones. Australia isn't the only one getting it early, New Zealand and Japan are getting it early as well, along with a plethora of other countries. Probably an error of some sort on Bethesda's part. You agree that you will not use IP proxying or other methods to disguise the place of your residence, whether to circumvent geographical restrictions on game content, to purchase at pricing not applicable to your geography, or for any other purpose.

If you do this, we may terminate your access to your Account. Used the vpn, everytime I try to launch steam with the vpn on it is telling me my password is wrong.

When I disable the vpn it works again. They have a 7day free trial! Servers aren't exploded yet, so go use it while you can. Make sure to turn steam to offline mode afterwards, like a good Samaritan. This worked instantly, no que or anything to connect. Have steam off when you connect with the VPN then start steam and press play, it will download the last part and unlock it then go offline mode in steam and turn of VPN so others can download, enjoy game and you can relog on steam after midnight local time!

I dont understand why it's so hard for people to understand why you won't get banned if you use a vpn to UNLOCK the game early.
