Edit by Travis@IO: For Xbox 360 players, you can only currently use the default languages that are on your disc. However, we will be releasing FREE DLC in the very near future to the Xbox Live Marketplace, called the English Language Pack, that will allow you to enable the original recorded audio in the options menu.



Hello guys.

I have a question: When will the English Language Pack be available on XBOX Live? I live in Germany and bought the German version and you announced that there will be a Language pack. When will that happen?

Language Pack coming or not???

Some say that a language pack already exists via x-box live. Strange..i can't seem to find it either. I have the same problem as you...keep in touch.
All the best

Is the language pack coming or not? Otherwise I just simply sell the game.

I wanna know that too. I have to play in french because in my country they sell only french and german versions :(

Okay, that's it for me. No one in the official (!!!) forum is looking into it, no one at the German hotline can say anything specific. I'm just selling the game, give some bad reviews @ amazon, metacritic and I'm done.

We are working on making the English language pack available through Xbox Live as soon as possible.

We're aware that many players are waiting for it and will update the community when we have more details.

Thanks for your patience!

Oh, thank you very much for the answer. So I can keep the game because you people @ IO did a damn fine job. I'm just waiting longer then.

Having to wait for the language pack to go online while all of the DLC items are available already is pretty bad...

But i have to admit: The german localisation is surprisingly well written AND spoken. Hitman: Absolution is one of the rare games which i'll probably play in german, even after the english voicepack has been released.:thumb:

We have to agree to disagree then. I think that every game or movie for that matter is meant to be played / viewed in its original language...if the game is made in Germany and its basic and original language is German then i would play it in German..no doubt about it ...there are voice actors involved in making Absolution that have a great influence in making the game all it could be ...as it is now...but for me it was a disappointment first time i started the game ...i felt like i only bought 70 % of it.
But maybe that's just me.

Naa, i feel you, really, i do. At first i wanted to take the game back to my retailer.
It's just that (for me) the localisation of absolution is quite acceptable until the voice pack comes around. Compared to other big games like Skyrim, Brink or Borderlands 2 , you can actually play this without the constant need to smirk painfully or laugh out loud.

I understand what you're saying :)
The funny thing is, i bought games from Germany before ..and every one of them also have the english voice over. That's why it didn't cross my mind that this one doesn't.

Hi, fellow hitman fan from Russia here. I've recently bought the game from one of the local stores (standard edition, by "New Disk" company) and to my great disappointment found out that it lacks original english audio track (even though option for english captions is still present). My console's language and locale are set to english and en-us respectively.
Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with the russian translation (well, it is pretty cheesy and generally makes the world less believable), but I really miss excelent voice work by mr. Bateson and those incredibly funny guards conversations — without them the game is just not the same for me.That's a damn shame by the way, considering that I've had to shell out $80 for it and my local store doesn’t accept purchases back.
So please, help me out — I really want to enjoy the game the way developers created it.

From what I've read around here, it seems like other than pc and playstation gamers, you're stuck with the language the respective retail version provides. However, and here's the good news, every so often people have requested that something be done about this and if I recall correctly, an IO official recently responded announcing that a variety of language packs were to be made available on xbox live. I can't tell you when this is gonna happen, though.

Update on this. The issues with the Language Pack for 360 now seem to be on the way to resolution. We expect it to go out with a patch very soon.

We will be releasing an English Language Pack as FREE DLC for Xbox users very soon.

This will give you the option to choose English audio instead of German.

Can you be more precise? :) I mean,..i started playing the first mission in German and now i kinda hate myself.
Thanks so much for your efforts.

A download pack that allows you to add the original audio (i.e English language) will be made available for download via Xbox Live in the near future. Thanks for your patience on this.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that the DLC will be free.

,,We will be releasing an English Language Pack as FREE DLC for Xbox users very soon.'' This is the funniest part... post was released 28.11 Today we have 6.12 How long we must wait ?? mounth ? two ? Guys just give us a date when it be available, and stop repeat ,,very soon'' ^ ^

In games like assassins creed you can easily change the german language to english why not in this huge awesome game? :(
We bought that game thats not justly when we cant hear their original voice actors
can you undrestand?

Yeah, and that's the reason I simply sold the game. Making promises without keeping them is just like todays game companies seem to work...

aikspot
7th Dec 2012, 08:11
Selling the game is not going to solve anything...not their incompetence....someone should have said something about not being able to fit more than one language on the damn disk. I would have bought it from the UK. And if you ask me its plain stupid to have the subtitles and the menu all in english but the voiceovers in ****IN' GERMAN...what's up with that?
I am selling the game myself....i've waited long enough.
Let the bad reviews flow.

They have our money, why should they care? And this is only for XBox 360, the PS3 and PC versions are multilingual. So, only a handful of people like us who are complaining. But on the other side, please note that Microsoft needs to look over every DLC before releasing it and sadly this process usually takes between 1 and 3 weeks.

aikspot
7th Dec 2012, 10:26
they should have looked over the DLC before the game was released...

We have been working to release the English language pack and are very well aware of the value that it holds for you as players.

We will be releasing the DLC once the upcoming patch/title update (expected week of December 10 (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=131276)) has released to ensure stability.
It is ready to go and will be made available on as close to the patch release date as possible.

We will continue to update this thread with updates. Thank you for your continued patience.

The patch is currently with Microsoft and we are waiting for approval. It is out of our hands now until we get that green light and Microsoft update the download catalogue to include the English Language Pack.

We expect this to happen at some point this week but cannot narrow it down any further.

We'll know as soon as each happens though and will update you in the appropriate thread.

The patch is waiting approval by Microsoft, but what about the language DLC? Has it been submitted yet, or are you still working on that one?

As mentioned in the patch thread (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=131276), we've had feedback from Microsoft and expect the 360 title update to go live on Wednesday 19 December.

We've got the English Language DLC already submitted and approved so expect it to be available on the same day as the patch.

In my opinion, they treat people like a ****. All what they can do is repeat ,,be patience'' again and again. I Fu..ck this ****.
Travis on the forum said that patch will be available on the 19th and nothing. It's f..ing joke i don't have even a simply patch which other countries of course had because ,,not be released in Russia, Poland or Turkey due to business reasons'' Oh thx IOI you are great. I'm bought yours game and now I cant download a fu...ing part of it ?
Maybe language patch will be too not relased in Poland ? You convinced me to sell hitman, thx and good luck -.-

19th Dec 2012, 20:39
Hey Travis..in case you guys are planning not to release the language pack and just lie about it ..forever, how about i send you my copy of "Hitman Absolution Professional Edition" with the German voiceovers and you send me one with the english? Then again, how about you do the same for all the players who are having this MAJOR PROBLEM. I think that would be fair...don't you? On the other hand you could just release that damn language pack already. Its just pathetic...

Unfortunately, it's not as easy as just releasing it as we please. The DLC had been finalised and submitted to Microsoft in advance of the title update release and our expectations were that it would be made available once the title update had been released - which is the latest update that I posted here.

That patch seems to have been released to the majority of players now but I'm chasing people to find out why the DLC hasn't been made available on the marketplace yet. I will update this post with an update as soon as I get one.

Your frustration is acknowledged and justified but I hope you can see that we stand to gain nothing by lying and offering false promises.

20th Dec 2012, 11:40
I am sorry for being this angry but maybe its because this is my favorite franchise and i have waited for this game ...too long if you ask me and when i bought it it came with a disappointment. You guys have done a great job with the game ...like always, but this language issue looks like a glitch in your system...and i say that with all due respect.
If i offended someone, i apologize but its getting really frustrating...

Travis_IO
20th Dec 2012, 12:21
It's nothing to apologise over, I just wanted you to know how it is from our side and that there are more factors in play than simply our desire to release the pack.

Update: The title update was released on Tuesday 19th as planned and can apparently take up to 72 hours to reach all consoles. We've been told that the new expected date for the DLC to hit is tomorrow, December 21.

(As a note, we were originally told that the DLC should be available on the same date as the patch.)

Again, we are aware that there are many of you waiting for this DLC and we are hoping that it can finally come through.

Hey, I've found a workaround – create a new US xbox live profile, login and download dlc. It will be available to your other accounts. However, even though it works, now when I try to start a new game Hitman always freezes. Maybe you'll have better luck.
