Now you're speaking my language!
Back in late May, publisher Chucklefish said they’d need a bit more time to add the Spanish and German translations to Eastward, but both options would be made available through a free update sometime down the road. Turns out that time is today, as the update is available right now!
Chucklefish shared a lengthy message about the patch, and you can read everything they had to say below.
The Spanish and German localisation patch is available now for Eastward! Everyone who has bought the game will be able to update it to receive Spanish and German as a language option.⚠️But remember: you MUST UPDATE YOUR GAME to get the patch! A big thanks here for the hard work of the Pixpil development team and localisation partners at Riotloc for working their best to bring this patch to players as quickly as possible!
As you may know, since March we have been facing a frustrating delay with the German & EU Spanish localisation update for Eastward due to the Shanghai lockdown in China (where the Pixpil dev team is located).Unfortunately, this situation impacted our previous planned timeline for both languages’ updates being implemented in the game (‘cause the dev team were with no access to their office, dev kits or servers) and, even with the lockdown ending in June, the implementation took several steps to complete the localisation process.
We know it has been quite waiting for this moment and we would like to truly appreciate the patience and support from the Eastward community during the last 3 months. We thank you all for your understanding. And we hope you enjoy this language update as much as we do. It was a long process for implementation, but with a lot of love to offer the best experience for you all. 🧡
