Steam Key Region Locking: How does it work?

Post by DarkDreamTCK »

Hi All

I'm not sure if this is the correct location for this, but I do have a question regarding region locked games on steam. The specific game I have in mind is Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite. So from what I can tell, there's keys for games that are region specific and I'm understanding that they won't work in other countries. But my question is, are these keys different in any way? Are they locked from the account itself, or is it location based?

Moreover, is it possible to activate a steam key for a game from another country via spoofing, and would it work after turning off the spoofing? Or is it some other kind of region locking?

Thank You
