Switch to Russian in Atomic Heart to ease some of the dialogue
You can learn another language while you’re at it.
After several years of delays and setbacks, Mundfish’s Atomic Heart is finally here, throwing players into an alternate view of history where plastics are taking over the USSR, wreaking havoc and misery. Players take on the role of Major P-3, a talkative protagonist who must uncover the cause of the problem and fend for himself amidst impending doom.
When Atomic Heart was released and hit the public, it seems that Major P-3 is a lot more vocal than most players expected. Much of the conversation track was downright critical of his lines and even all of the dialogue in Atomic Heart, coming across as “cringey” in at least the English dub.
Ahead of the release, Mundfish recommended players to change the English dub to Russian for the best possible experience, which is fairly common in various media adaptations, hence the saying “lost in translation”. For players interested in changing the language, simply:
- Open Atomic Heart and bring up the menus.
- choose options.
- Choose Audio.
- Select Audio Language at the bottom of the audio menu.
- From there, select “PYCCKNN” which is the translation for Russian.
Of course, there are a variety of other languages to choose from, and the choice is in the air as to how they perform. However, with Atomic Heart exploring the USSR, it might be best to heed Mundfish’s advice for the best possible experience.
Atomic Heart is available now for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, and available on the latter two platforms via Game Pass.
