Chinese mega hit Tale of Immortal now has an English version
It’s always exciting for me when a Chinese game suddenly becomes popular on Steam. It creates the feeling of having my face pressed against a window, looking at a potentially delicious buffet on the other side that I can’t eat.
So it was with Tale Of Immortal, a seemingly vast open-world 2D action RPG that, overnight, seemed to get 90,000 positive reviews from Steam after its January release. Well now the buffet window is smashed and Tale Of Immortal just added an English version.
Tale Of Immortal is inspired by Chinese mythology and mystical arts. You run, destroy swarms of things using a skill bar, level up to unlock new skills, and chat with NPCs. The world you are exploring is depicted in a lush, hand-drawn art style that sometimes appears to be painted in watercolor on parchment.
TO post to the game’s Steam page explains that the location is 90% complete. Small future updates to the game may not be localized right away, given the time it takes to translate, but otherwise the game should be perfectly playable now for those who can read English but not Chinese.
If you’ve played the game before, your existing gamer profile may still default to the Chinese language. You can change the “语言 ——” setting from “简体 中文” to English (Alpha) and restart the game, according to the developers.
Tale Of Immortal is also currently available at a 20% discount, for which it costs £ 12.39 / € 13.43 on steam at the time of writing.
