UPDATE: We’re told that you may need to buy if off of the New Zealand store for it to unlock at New Zealand’s time. Also, we are not sure if this voids Microsoft’s Terms of Service, so do at your own risk.

Original Story:
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches in New Zealand first, in about 13 hours from now. For those outside of New Zealand may be wondering how to jump on and play at the same time.

Here’s how:

  • Go to “Settings” app on Xbox One
  • Then go to “System” icon
  • Then click on “Location and Language”
  • And then choose “New Zealand” as the Region

The Xbox One will have to restart, then searching up Advanced Warfare on the store again should say game will unlock at midnight New Zealand time.
