    Why are the games by default installed in German language and how can I set it to English?


    Hi,

    Problem: games from Game Pass install by default in German language.

    I need to have them in English.

    I am subscribed to Game Pass Ultimate.

    My Windows 10 display language settings is English.

    My Windows 10 regional format is German (Swtizerland).

    Which setting do I need to change to have them in English?

    I have this problem for a long time and still have not figured it out.

    Thanks.

    :)

    Hi and thanks for reaching Microsoft Xbox gamer's community. My name is Josef.

    I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft Xbox user like you.

    Hope you're doing great today despite this IgorZhilin

    May I know if you tried changing your regional format to English too?

    If maybe the issue persists please change the Windows display language to English (United States)

    Restart your PC and give it a new try.

    Let me know how it goes with each option

    Think I understand the problem now !

    Indeed the game supports german language as well, yet your console region should be set to Germany and your default language should be set to german in order to play Dishonored in that language.

    Ok thank you, that actually solved my problem! :)

    The game apparently defaults to French when the language is set to English (and only French and German are available languages for the game).

    My region was set to Germany for some time but my console was always set to English. And the game always defaulted to French. So the game doesn't care about my region settings and only checks the language settings. When changing the console/system language to German the game is also German (English is not an option and when set as the system language changes the games language to French).

    Xbox game pass for isn't in english

    Hello and welcome to the forums.

    If you are using PC, make sure your default Windows OS and also BIOS default languages are set to English.

    If you are using Xbox console - check language in the settings and also the account region. In some instances if you registered account in another market, it may not be possible to download other languages and local content per content item. So if you have
    German account, the downloaded content would be served in German as default, while the setting can be overwritten either through settings > languages or within the game/app.

    Let me know if you require further assistance.

    Best Wishes.
