Ea declared that already ;
The language of the commentary and ingame language will be the same as the one chosen in origin in game properties , and you can't change that from inside the game .
If your fifa 18 copy support English language you could choose english in game properties in origin
And if it doesn't support English language you could edit the fifa 18.exe with hex editor into English , and add the english language commentary files to avoid game crashing ,
and the ingame language and commentary language will be in English .
No they don't!? Link!? Text!? The only thing the patchnotes say is "Players will no longer be able to choose a language, at the startup of the game" ... that's are the flags mate! There is nothing about the commentary option and the consoles are not even have that text passage in the patchnotes.
That's the one thing ... and on the other side. IF this is on purpose ... why in the world they would make cuts like that for PC-Gamers!? Why the games are now different between systems. I mean ... just WHY!? Did I have to buy FIFA 19 on PS4 to have the commentary options and why the options are still there, but greyd out!?
@V.K - You'r absolutely right. I love doing that too. I love playing the game with the english commentators (the german commentators are so bad an they know nearly none of the players names), but maybe you got a away game against Juve, then maybe put it on Italian, to get the ultimative away feeling.
And yeah ... It doesn't help at all, changing it in Origin. Thats not the same in any way. The game then checks all files for 10 minutes and like I said. I don't want the whole game in english, just the commentary.
