Hello Steam Friends,

We are very excited to announce that subtitles and UI are all localized for 6 new languages: Spanish, French, German, Farsi, Russian & Turkish!

We've been working very hard on this for the past few months - our primary goal with 1979 was to share it with as many different cultures as possible, and this is a BIG step forward in that commitment to make it a global community.

To celebrate this big moment, we've made our Game + Soundtrack edition 50% off for the next week - if you haven't picked up 1979 Revolution: Black Friday there's no better time than right now!
