Wow, Septerra Core, brings back a lot of memories, I used to run a fan site for that games in what seems like another life today.

OMG. I scrolled down to the patch notes not expecting anything huge, but they finally fixed the language in Spyro Reignited, which is something I've been waiting MONTHS FOR. Valve has been super responsive on their Github and took community feedback seriously. Praise Gaben.

Does anyone know how why the wrong language video was played in Spyro Reignited? The bug sounds interesting, but I'm too tired to look through the changes.

I don't know but Back 4 Blood has the same problem... Hopefully the fix works for that game too.

I am having this problem on Halo Infinite. Just installed it, and the opening cut scenes are not in the default English language (It uses Spanish, unexpectedly).

More detail: The Steam language IS set to "English". Changing the language settings, in Steam Preferences for the game, downloads the new language pack (always not-English) and going back to English (unfortunately for me) restores to the incorrect Spanish.
