Many For Honor players are struggling to change the game’s language, but this has proven to be a more difficult task than expected. If you’re looking for a solution to change For Honor’s languages, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we’re going to show you exactly how to do that.

Many non-native English speakers can’t stand playing games in their mother tongue. As a result, they prefer to enable the English version of For Honor’s interface. However, the steps to follow are not that obvious, as this player explains:

How do I change my language?
I’m Dutch, but I simply can’t stand playing games in Dutch. The way those ♥♥♥♥ers translate is the stuff of infants. Can’t change it under options. It only allows me to enable subtitles…

To change languages in For Honor you need to open the game’s options file and change some values. As players report, finding the dedicated menu or option to change languages is not that easy.

How to change For Honor’s languages

1. Go to For Honor’s install folder, which should generaly be located at this address:
C:\Users\%YOURUSERNAME%\Documents\my games\For Honor\options.ini

2. Open the file and locate the following values:

[Language]
EnableSubtitles=false
LanguageID=$
SubtitlesID=$
VoiceLanguageID=$

3. Replace the $ with your language ID:
1 = English
2 = French
5 = German
7 = Simplified Chinese
8= Traditional Chinese
13 = Russian
19 = Brazilian Portuguese

If, by any chance, you know the numbers associated with other languages, use the comment section below and share with us this information.

Also, it appears that some versions of the game are region locked. Players confirm that the Russian version of the game supports only Russian and Chinese.

RELATED STORIES YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT:

  • When i saw the options file it showed a list of languages options and i matched the number. for example dutch = 14 while english = 1

  • Is there really no way to change the game from Russian to English? Like the region locked version? Or is it that nobody hasn’t figured out how to do it yet? I mean, the game has been out for only 2 days.
