Change FEAR Combat Language

What do I need?

All you need is the FEAR Launcher, get It at the downloads section of the page.

On What game versions does It work?

It’s 100% confirmed working in FEAR Combat 1.08 and 1.10

How does It work?

Once you run It and select a different language, the Launcher will download the required files and change the default.archcfg file to point to the new files. you keep both languages, but can enable only one at a time. Once you download a language files pack, you can switch back to It without need to download the files again. Most issues with the language selection are caused because you didn’t run the Launcher as admin.

What languages are available?

All the Native FEAR Languages: English to:

  • Spanish
  • French
  • Czech
  • Italian
  • Polish
  • Russian
  • Chinese
  • Japanese
  • German

What do I need to do?

Download the FEAR Launcher 2.0 Extract the content of the RAR file to the FEAR Combat Directory (If you don’t, IT will try to find It for you). Run the Launcher as Administrator (This is mandatory, because It needs to download content to the Game Directory). Click on Settings.

FEAR Launcher Settings: Change language
FEAR Launcher Settings: Change language

Then select the language you want. This will ask If you want to download the required files (usually 5). Click YES to start download, click No to cancel the process.

FEAR Launcher Settings: Downloading Language Pack

Once the download is completed, you will have the game in the selected Language.


As mentioned before, most problems are caused because you didn’t run the Launcher as administrator. If you use STEAM and the Single player game crashes, read the extra notes section for the FEAR Launcher here.

Other problems can be missing files; If you have problems with the content or get errors, the best way to fix It, Is delete the downloaded files.

If you downloaded the language French, you will need: Go to $program_files$/Sierra/FEAR Combat (SEC2)/Languages/fr/ To other languages change the last 2 leters. Delete all the files in that location.

Run the launcher again, and try to change language. It will try to download the content. Setting the game to english again, should reset the default files back, and can be used as failsafe mode. If the problem persists, contact us.
