SOLVED [RESOLVED] Audio and dialogues missing during Sigrblot Festival | POST HERE0 Likes/51 Replies/1161 Views
The audio stopped working in the encampment as soon as the festival started, that meant the intro cutscenes were silent, dialog popped up onscreen but only for a fraction of a second so I couldn’t read it.
Consequently I have no idea what this festival is about. I left and came back to no change apart from the wolf thing was now on fire.
Oh, also Reda only has a single quest.
Please fix these bugs.

I would like to reach out to you all with an update from the development team. They have issued the following statement regarding the missing audio/dialogue during the Sigrblot Festival.
"We have investigated the issue with missing audio and subtitles but will not be able to deploy a comprehensive fix before the festival ends on August 19. Thanks for reaching out to us as we can better prevent this for the next festival!"
We understand that this may not be the update you were hoping for, and apologise for any disappointment that has been caused by this issue. The development team will be using the reports shared within this thread to help prevent these kinds of audio issues occuring in future festivals. Thank you for taking the time to share these with us.
We would encourage you to take the time to enjoy the festival, if you have not played through it already, before it ends on August 19, 2021.
Thank you for your understanding
For the flyting contest in the Sigrblot Festival, I went up to Ake and a lot of the audio and subtitles for the dialogue is not present. While this is clearly a bug/glitch with the festival, I thought it was pretty funny to see Eivor and Ake use body language and hand gestures in their flyting contest. Eivor is so smooth... Ake had no chance! Hahaha... but really, please fix this for the other players. I’m playing on my XBox Series X, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this happens on other platforms.
Thanks yes level scaling did allow the quest back, but the audio is still broken in the encampment and I still have zero idea what this festival is meant to be about. I guess something to do with the upcoming siege of Paris based on one npc interaction that the text showed up for? It’s really annoying that it doesn’t work as it means I’m missing out on story.
I’m sure you’re overwhelmed with the number of bug reports coming it, but is there any chance of an ETA on emergency fixes?
I’d very much like to
- Be able to go to the settlement and not have the audio broken as soon as I walk through the arch on the dock
- Be able to pick up quests from Reda without having to change difficulty scaling
- Experience the festival opening or any dialog with audio and subtitles (and know what is going on a new why I have ten new quests related to the festival)
- Have enemies respawn at the Soham Hideout
- Be able to go to Ireland without going to sleep
I have to be honest. It’s feeling very close to the edge of being unplayable right now. Closer than I’ve ever experienced an AC game and I played Unity from launch. A light at the end of the tunnel would go a long way to making this current hiccup feel more bearable.

Sorry to hear that you encountered this sound issue.
It is great to hear that you found a solution that helped you.
If you have any further trouble it would be great if you could share a link to a video with us so we can hear exactly what is happening.
@ubi-wheelyduck are you taking the mick? There’s no solution, audio is broken, the festival is broken, this game is utterly broken. I have no idea what the idea of this festival is nor what i”m meant to do for it hanks to there essentially being no cutscenes, no npc interaction, no dialog lines, the entire encampment is broken.
The Reda quest system itself is frankly a separate issue but also still broken too but that was the least of the issues, having a really annoying workaround for a bug that requires reloading multiple times is not a solution. I want to play the game using the scaling setting at nightmarish but now that becomes a pita.
I’m not going to post a video. This game is broken in a fundamental way. I cannot recommend it to friends, I cannot really enjoy it myself, right now the only thing I’m doing with it is loading in to do the Reda quests to keep my character up to date, I don’t want to spend more time in a game this broken. I’ve taken the time to respond and report bugs with as much detail as I can give and frankly this lack of bothering to read, then responding with canned replies to try and set bugs to “resolved” when they are not, this feels [censored] and contemptuous.
Reporting again because it’s not listed in the reported issues thread - the audio is completely broken in the festival site and whole encampment.
Going in to a menu even the audio is broken and acts like it’s trying to play too many samples simultaneously for the engine.
There is no fix for this, the game is broken. Only occasional audio comes up. Dialog text also only pops up for a fraction of a second before vanishing so you cannot read it.
This renders the festival impossible to comprehend, what is the point of it? What is going on? What am I meant to be doing with it? Was there meant to be some intro? Is there some order that things have to be done in for it? Is there any reward? This game is beyond broken, I’m upset because I paid for a season pass for content I’m basically not getting now.
Please report this properly to the developers, please fix this ASAP before the festival is over…

I am sorry for the confusion and my misunderstanding.
The audio issue you are describing is not one we are aware of and for this reason I understand you already advised you wouldn't be attaching a video but it would be great if you are able to do so as we are more than happy to investigate this in detail.
With regards to Reda's quests would it be possible to share an image of what you see?
Once again apologies for the misunderstanding and I will be more than happy to help where I can
Thank you for the update.
After we received few reports regarding this issue, I was able to pass it along to the development team for further investigation.
I also created a megathread for this and merged your thread with it for better visibility.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused by this and if you have any other questions, please let us know.
Sorry to hear about your experience.
I passed it along to the development team for further investigation.
While the team is looking into it at the moment, can you please perform all of the troubleshooting steps listed in this article? Alternatively, can you please reinstall your game? This will help you to eliminate any potentially corrupted files that can lead to this issue.
Many thanks and if you have any additional questions, please let us know!
PS: I also merged your thread with another one to keep everyone up to date.
Thank you for the update! I already reported this to the development team for further investigation. Once we have more details regarding this particular issue, we will let everyone know through these forums. Apologies for any inconvenience caused by this.

Can someone tell me why the audio still doesn't work on xbox one? This is disgusting.

Sorry to hear these issues are affecting the enjoyability of the game. These issues have been reported and are currently under investigation with our development team.
Your first point: 'go to the settlement and not have the audio broken', needs further reporting. If you would happen to have any video clips or further details on possible reproduction steps, they would be much appreciated.
Thank you for reaching out, but regrettably we are unable to share any information regarding patch schedules, and timeframes. Apologies for any disappointment caused by this.
