I don't know for certain, but I hope not, since there'd be less reason to do so. With the game being turn-based and all, any extra lag that an overseas connection might cause isn't likely to be game-crippling, like it might be in a game like Borderlands 2.

Of course, cross platform multiplayer would've been a nice touch, too, since the turn-based nature means no platform would have an innate advantage because of its control scheme, and they didn't implement that, so who knows?

I think it will be region locked in order to help prevent piracy and to teach those that buy Russian keys for cheap a lesson.

Yeah all you people who bought "discount keys" from shady retailers should be quivering about this too (and this includes greenmangaming, clowns).

As far as I know, this question hasn't been asked yet.

GMG isn't a "discount key" retailer. They sell full downloads for non-Steam games. The key-only stuff is for Steam games only. What, did they eat your dog or something?

I'm not sure of the answer to this question myself, but given that XCOM:EU is one of the very few modern games that actually offers a LAN option in MP, I don't think they'll let region locks get in the way of their MP.
