When the Batman: Arkham Knight is installed the language is set based on the language of your Windows operating system.
If you would like to change your language you can do so by editing the .INI file in the game's folder.
To edit this file first navigate to the game's installation folder. By default this is:
Note that if you installed the game on a different drive letter or in a different location you will need to navigate to that instead.
Once you have opened your BatmanArkhamKnight folder proceed to BMGame > Config
Inside this folder locate and open the BmEngine.ini file.
In this file if the text line "Language=" is set to a valid 3-letter code then Batman: Arkham Knight will use that language.
If "Language=" is set to nothing or an unsupported language then Batman: Arkham Knight will default to English.
If you enter the 3-letter from the chart below and save the file you will be able to use your preferred language the next time you start Arkham Knight.
Note that if you would like to play with English voice audio but with subtitles in a different language you can set your language via the .INI file using the appropriate 3-letter code and then visit Options > Audio in-game and use the "Audio in Original Version" setting to use English audio.
