Changing the language in Apex Legends on PC can be a hassle as in-game settings do not allow you to switch between different languages.
Nintendo Switch users will need to manually download language packs from the eShop.
Xbox and PS4/PS5 users can directly change language in Apex Legends from the in-game settings.

Apex Legends Season 10 added a host of quality-of-life (QOL) changes that make communication easier. The developers added contextual text in the gameplay feed for Bloodhound scans, ability usage and more. If you want to play Apex Legends in a language that is more comfortable for you, there are many more contextual menus and voice lines that make playing in a language, other than English, more convenient when compared to previous seasons.

Unfortunately, Apex Legends automatically selects a language for you and you will need to edit your settings on your game launcher (Steam/Origin) or your console to change to a different language. Here is a quick guide to change your language in Apex Legends on any platform.

What language options are available in Apex Legends?

There are 12 languages currently supported by Apex Legends which include English, Chinese (traditional), Chinese (simplified), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. On PC and console, all language packs are installed by default while Nintendo Switch users need to download the required language packs separately.
