I've downloaded the latest title patch in hopes these issues are fixed and after playing for 3 hours I can safely say that they are NOT.
Ambient music does not play, no fight music, nothing. Eivor's voice still sounds like he's thinking, while he's actually speaking out loud, with a weird echo and way louder than any other character.
This patch did nothing about these issues for me.
Thank you everyone for your continued updates and information! We have forwarded each of your details up to the Game team to be included with their investigation and as soon as we have more info to provide, we should post it here.
If anyone else is experiencing missing music or audio, please let me know and provide the platform that you play on and send your most recent manual save to the cloud. Thanks so much for all of your patience!

@ubikobold So here's the thing, I started playing Valhalla like 2 weeks ago and so far the game has been the best experience in my ps5 so far, like really, good lore, good gameplay, good music, as ironically as it may seem, but yeah, it's all there. Until yesterday... I'm a perfectionist with my games, I want the best graphics, best sound... So when something is odd with those components I immediately realize. This "no music bug" happened to me before, once or twice, mainly in assaults and raids, in which there was a sound of battle drums in the background and no music with it. How I dealt with that? Just got to my main screen and logged back in. Coincidental or not, all the times that it happened before was immediately after a cutscene. The actual bug occurred at the end of Licolnshire Arc spoiler As soon as the quest was concluded I did the same procedure as before, reloaded into the game. With that the HDR problem was fixed, but not the music one. No sound at all. Not in combat, not in exploration, not in stealth, not even in the synchronization points. I tried everything, so far as the PS5 management goes... Loaded different saves, including saves before the bug, changed the language, customized the sound settings, traveled to different locations, and finally, after none of the previous worked, I deleted and reinstalled the entire game. To my surprise, when I woke up today the game was still bugged. Ubisoft u gotta fix this, I played all assassin's creed games so far and I really like Valhalla. The game loses all it's immersion without music.
Hello again everybody, and thank you all for providing more information regarding missing music. I greatly appreciate all of your patience, and wanted to update you all on the progress of the investigation. The Game team no longer needs anymore save files, and this should be addressed in a future patch. Please keep an eye out for further updates regarding this, and if any of you have any more to add in the meantime, please let me know!

@ubikobold I really hope this is also gonna fix the frequency at which the music plays. The game should never go more than 2 minutes without ambient music as long as the music frequency is set to high. Such a shame how Jesper Kyd, Sarah Schachner and Einar Selvik created an amazing soundtrack but we can barely hear it.
Also the official soundtrack albums for the game have a bunch of shanties in Old Norse, how come these aren't in the game ?
We only have the English version of these.
And tracks like the one playing when we have to save Oswald (Hrafnsmal) should also be used during usual combat. It' such a good one, but again, it's barely used. I think I've only heard it during that one battle. Then never again.
Sorry for my delay, but thank you all for your updates and patience regarding missing music. While I do not have a date of when this should be resolved, please know that this should be addressed in a future update. I apologize for not having any more information at this time, but thank you again for all of your patience, as I do understand the time that some of you have been waiting. As more detail is provided, I will provide updates here as I can. Also, Nozgame, the shanties in Old Norse may be missing in relation to this missing music issue. Once the missing music issue is resolved, if you are still not hearing these shanties in-game, please let me know so that I may continue to update the Game team.
