    How to do it in the Windows Store if playing with Gamepass? Its a different story.
    But i managed to do it anyways. Maybe there are finer procedures, but this is it.

    1. Go to your install directory of the game. You can’t access it directly, because its owned by the TrustedInstaller. You have to gain the possession of the Folder (for example c:\WindowsApps) via the security tab (Right click the folder WindowsApps > Security) and define the possession for your user.

    2. Make a very easy batch script with the EXE of the application and the needed line. For example:
    C:\WindowsApps\CurveDigital.TheAscent_2.0.1.0_x64__1ezqdnbhnc70m\TheAscent\Binaries\WinGDK\TheAscent-WinGDK-Shipping.exe -culture=”en-GB”

    The link may vary depending on the version of the game and the folder. If you are an advanced user you will know.
    If you start the game with tha batch script, it will start in the language you want.
