    The question will be how amazon links it to your origin account.. and if theres any negative effect from that.. ie, AU or US regions..

    I'll do some digging and see if I can find a date..

    BF4 appears to be region free - unless they are doing it differently just for Amazon?

    i.e. I bought it from Mexico - installed fine and in English

    Amazon are doing it differently, as they don't give you a key anymore.. amazon links to your origin account and it's an automated process.. so whether or not it'll cause a problem with your amazon US billing address and your origin AU account is anyone's guess.

    My first stop is the comments and reviews on the Amazon product page. Then google "(game name) region locked amazon", without the quotes.

    This one might be better as it lists up-coming deals too.

    BTW from the above link:
    29/11/2013 29/11/2013 Battlefield 4 - 29.99 $29.99

    SR IV for $15 for and Metro: LL for $13.60 are looking good.

    But what am I going to do in the meantime? Man, knowing a better deal is a week away is.....such a first world problem.

    Seems BF4 has a download method (cd key given) and an instant access method (linke Origin Acc. is my guess.)

    Just wanted to mention, even if you bought this bundle a little while ago, the extra game will still be available for you to activate on Steam (as long as you beat the minimum donation requirement).
    Check your email for the IndieGala profile link, click on it, and the new entries should be listed at the bottom.
