Ghost Valley Studio has finally launched the Tale of Immortal English version on Steam, opening up this popular Chinese RPG to even more players around the world.
Tale of Immortal is an open-world RPG based on Chinese mythology. You'll travel the land fighting all sorts of mystical creatures, gradually growing from a normal person into a legendary being. It proved to be immensely popular on launch with 184,171 peak players according to SteamDB; the player count has since stabilized to around 8,000 peak players a day. That number might soon go up again — the game finally has support for the English language.
All About the Tale of Immortal English Version
The Tale of Immortal English version was released earlier today according to a Steam Community news post from the developer. That news post notes that the English-language version of the game is around 90% complete; players should expect small updates in the future to fix any problems with the translation.
If you've previously muddled through the game without a command of the Chinese language, you may still be stuck in that mode when you launch the game. You can switch to English by finding the setting「语言」and changing it from「简体中文」to "English (Alpha)" and restarting the game.
There are quite a few games on Steam that are only available in the Chinese language, but that's slowly changing. Sands of Salzaar added 500,000 lines of English text late last year after it proved to be unexpectedly popular with Western audiences. Of course, there's also Genshin Impact's launch to consider; that game transitioned from being an Asia exclusive to one of the most popular free-to-play games in the world after releasing an English-language patch.
The Tale of Immortal English version launch is now live and the game's developer has a sale lasting for the next few days. You can buy Tale of Immortal on Steam for $15.99 or your regional equivalent, a 20% discount off of its retail price.
