- Region A: North, Central, South America, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia.
- Region B: Europe (EU), Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.
- Region C: Russia, India, China, and the rest of the world.
Select titles are released as Region ABC, meaning they are playable in all regions.

Consumers are provided with a single-use code to authenticate a computer to handle the Digital Copy. This Digital Copy can be accessed on all compliant devices such as a Mac or PC, iPod, iPhone, and iPad.
