Are we going to need a VPN to connect from outside NA, ie Europe?
@WeighedJewel242 Nope, you can connect to it without the need of a VPN.
The only thing you need to do is change your PC's region to USA or Canada in order to find the game in the Microsoft Store. You can change it back afterwards, and still be able to connect to the game with your normal region setting.
Buying AC, (microtransaction currency) is a whole different story though.
