    I did try a lot of different things so I'm not sure what did the job, but I'm playing at Performance Mode with music on High and after "turning the game off and on again" ambient music now plays. I'm currently in England, maybe Norway is bugged and if you doesn't fully turn off the game - since Xbox has Quick Resume which keeps the game running on background when you turn the console off - it will keep silent.

    @ubi-raziel I too have the same issue. Raida were fun with music. Just without it it is not as fun. Has there been a fix yet? Playing in xbox x series.

    I experience this issue as well.

    • Music will get stuck in a continuous loop - have to exit to the main menu to reset it
    • Fight scene music and other encounter specific music doesn't play anymore, the Zealot encounters is a good example
    • Content specific music is not loading in when it should


    It really detracts from the game. Music makes a big part of the encounters and gameplay immersion.

    A fix would be welcome Ubisoft! Such a great game in any case! 🙂 Really love it.

    Hello again everyone!

    I'm very sorry for not returning to you sooner. Our discussions are very busy currently and we're working hard to reply to everyone.

    At first I thought this issue to be specific to Xbox, however it seems some of you are also on PS4 and PC.

    Our team has not experienced this at all in a testing environment therefore it's difficult to find the source of the issue. Would anyone be able to provide a short video showing both their in-game audio settings and the issue itself?

    Thank you very much!

    What would the video require? Would it need the settings shown that have the setting for exploring on high and then showing no music? I’m not sure how to show the lack of music. It’s currently just silent through the out the whole game as if someone turned off the music other than combat. I appreciate you getting back to this thread was worrying it was going unnoticed.

    Hi,

    You can find the link to a short video with the audio settings and the lack of music below. In the menu and at the end in the loading screen the game has music but during gameplay it doesn't. I don't know if the game is designed to be like that but it feels empty without background music.
    I hope a fix will come soon for a better experience.

    Hello, I have the same problem, have you any solution? I´m playing on PC, just for record.

    Hey guys so I think perhaps I may have found out what it could be? I recently started a whole new play through but more to take my time and enjoy the scenery and game overall. While doing this. I notice by not fast traveling the games music was MUCH more frequent as maybe it’s able to register going into a different region? I’m not sure it’s the only theory I could throw is maybe it’s fast travel bug. Or maybe my previous character had a corrupt save somewhere that altered the music?

    Hi, has this issue been resolved with a fix? I'm on XSX and cannot get my crew to sing. Also wondering what other audio / music I'm missing out on??

    @silvahound7 I'd also like to note a related bug, sometimes the track "The Guardian" will loop it's first part of form endlessly unless the game returns to title screen.

    Sometimes up to 45min can go buy without any exploration music. Music frequency is set to HIGH but makes no difference. Is this as intended?

    I'm on PC, Windows 10 2004 update. The only music I will hear is the combat music but as soon as that dies down mostly silence again. Even the music that use to ALWAYS play back at the settlement is gone most of the time.

    Same problem on PS5. It just happened to me recently, maybe two days ago.

    @ubi-raziel when is the next patch/update due? Whilst AC is my favourite game series and I’m loving Valhalla; it is the buggiest game I’ve ever played - so frustrating. Needs so many fixes before can really enjoy
    it without getting annoyed by its clunkiness! Please let us know!

    Just want to add that I have this problem too. I just started the game on my PS5 for the first time yesterday. Today when sailing the longboat I noticed that the crew wouldn't sing. Eivor says "sing me something" but no singing ever starts. Will find some other game to play and hope that this gets fixed in the meantime, or someone posts a working workaround. Being scandinavian, I was especially looking forward to the singing and the music in this game and I don't want to play it without it.

    As many other players have discussed, the music is not present during the game. It played briefly upon arriving at the first settlement, but now all music remains absent. I've plugged 10 hours into finding all 100% of lower Norway and not once during any encounter or simple exploration did the soundtrack play. I'm loving the game but as I was playing I realized the soundtrack was lacking. I though it was intentional, but after 10 hours and some story progress I now realize this is not intentional. Also, in no way will I play until it is fixed. Jesper Kyd's soundtracks are amazing and I refuse to go any further without it, Please, Ubisoft, can you explain to us what is going on? And for the record, I'm playing on the Series X. All my settings are at "performance" and my music frequency is set to "high." Thank you.

    Just to further elaborate, the music-stop began upon loading the game back up after shutting it down for the first time (using the series x instant resume). I just happened to stop playing upon arriving at the first settlement. The music seemed to be playing fine until that point. Whether or not the problem is due to after the arrival at the settlement or due to turning the game off for the first time, I do not know. I've closed out everything completely and the music is still absent.

    @ubi-raziel As of 01/08/21, I'm experiencing the exact same problem on the series X. The epic scope of the game feels extremely lost without the music. Please get to the bottom of this Ubi. We want to continue the awesome experience with Kyd's soundtrack intact.
