How to change language in Anno 2070

So I got myself and the wife the digital download of Anno 2070 on the nordic release date, and downloaded/installed on both our pc's, only to find the language, menus, audio ect was in German. Now I searched for hours for a solution, but since the game was only just released no such info could be found. I finally figured it out, by using the same method as was used for anno 1404.


Locate the file called "Engine.ini" for windows it'll be:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Ubisoft\ANNO 2070\Config

Open the file and located the line <LanguageTAG>ger</LanguageTAG> and change the ger to your preferred language, ie: <LanguageTAG>eng</LanguageTAG>

I hope this helps someone, as I was just about to lose my mind trying to find a solution.

  5. It's most likely because you have your Explorer set up to not show hidden files, press the windows key + R and type in "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Ubisoft\ANNO 2070\Config"

  13. The problem may be that you don't have the localization files for any language other than Rus. Check if you have the files called "eng1.rda" "eng2.rda" ect in the folder Anno 2070\maindata, also check in the folder locales for "en-US.dll"..

    I believe the language strings are in those files, so if you don't have those, but only the Russian ones, the game can't change language.
