Changing Language for Simcity 5

★★★★ Newbie

I purchased and installed the Simcity 5 digital preorder, but the game has defaulted to run in Chinese, I can't find the way the change it to English within the game settings. I've tried changing my origin to english, but it didn't change the in game language.

Was your Origin in English when you installed the game?

 

For other Maxis games in the past (Sims 3), it went as such: You can choose your language prior to download/install. But only if your Origin client is in English. If your Origin client is in any other language it will download and install in the language your client is in.

I installed the game with Origin in Chinese, I didn't realise it affected the installed game.

So to change my game into English, i'll have to re-download and install the game with the client in English?

Not sure about the re-download bit, what I know is that you'll probably have to download language packages.

I have just uninstalled the game and reinstalled it thru Origin (in English), the game seemed to have downloaded and installed rather quickly, but the Update via the launcher is taking rather long. 

However the launcher is now in English rather then Chinese like previously, so I would believe that the game will now run in English. 

It would also be good to know about the language packs, if so i want to change languages later.

 

Thanks~

I have a german Origin account, but live in New York for now, so I preordered the Simcity Digital Deluxe Edtion in December and I've selected the german language. I paid in €, but though the Origin Country is set to US, will I be able to download simcity today or do I have to wait till Thursday? I'm in US(NY) now.

 

I wasn't sure, if I can set the language to 'german' afterwards if I buy it through the US Store. If yes, I would have pay less and would be able to play it right now - bad decision... I've already bought us-games with the origin client, and love to play it in english, but I wanted this game 'ger'.

 

I can see simcity in "my games" in the origin client, but it's still not avaiable.

Could your highness elaborate on as to where one could get them?
