How to Install Call of Duty: Ghosts English Language Pack
If you have bought Call of Duty: Ghosts from a non-English region or a shady CD-key shop, you might have encountered a problem with the language settings. The game might be in a different language than you prefer, and you might not be able to change it from the game options. Fortunately, there is a solution to this issue: installing an English language pack.
A language pack is a mod that replaces the original game files with the ones in your desired language. It can be downloaded from various sources online, but you need to be careful about the compatibility and the legitimacy of the files. Some language packs might not work with your game version, or might contain viruses or malware. Therefore, it is advisable to use a trusted source and scan the files before installing them.
One of the most reliable sources for Call of Duty: Ghosts English language pack is SteamDB[^1^], a website that provides information about Steam games and depots. A depot is a logical grouping of files which are all delivered to a customer as a single unit. For Call of Duty: Ghosts, there are different depots for different languages, such as English, French, German, etc. You can find the depot ID for the English language pack on SteamDB[^1^], which is 209172.
To install the English language pack, you need to follow these steps:
Download the depotdownloader tool from GitHub[^2^]. This is a command-line tool that allows you to download Steam depots.
Extract the depotdownloader zip file to a folder of your choice.
Open a command prompt window and navigate to the folder where you extracted the depotdownloader tool.
Type the following command: dotnet DepotDownloader.dll -app 209160 -depot 209172 -manifest 1215466573079763620 -username your_steam_username -password your_steam_password. Replace your_steam_username and your_steam_password with your actual Steam credentials. This will download the English language pack files to a subfolder named depots.
Copy the contents of the depots\209172\english folder to your Call of Duty: Ghosts installation folder, overwriting any existing files.
Launch the game and enjoy it in English.
Note that this method might not work if you have other language packs installed, or if you enable "check for game updates" in the game settings. Also, this method might violate the terms of service of Steam or Activision, so use it at your own risk.
If you have any questions or problems with installing the English language pack, you can check out some online tutorials[^3^] or forums[^4^] for more help. Alternatively, you can contact Steam or Activision support for official assistance.
