    I really would like to see this issue listed on the known issues pinned thread.

    This is honestly so frustrating. Some acknowledgement or an update would be nice. I've spent more time looking on these forums and reddit about this issue (hoping for an update) than I have actually playing the game on the Series X, because the sound is so bad.

    Firstly, apologies for needing to do this. With respect, I am not sure which mods are actually active here, or if any of them are able to serve as a middle-person for relaying information to the community from the devs/managers etc. but since I've already tried to address one of them with no response, I'm making an extra effort by tagging several.

    Since the problems with audio on AC Valhalla are among the top voted on this board, with countless corroborating complaints across more than one thread, and daily mentions on Reddit, can we receive some kind of official confirmation or update regarding the audio issues outlined here? Thank you!

    As you can tell, we're anxious to hear something.

    @captainstarpaw I think with the stuff that went down yesterday in Ubisoft Montreal (Valhalla's studio) we probably wont hear anything till the monda atleast.

    @palpyisback Very good observation - Even though it was only a hoax, I am happy it was handled well and no one was hurt. We're living in strange times.

    When switching from Keyboard/Mouse to Gamepad the audio cuts out for a second or two in-game. (While using "Hybrid" input mode in the controls settings.)

    Any updates as to if this will be fixed? It sounds like I'm listening through broken headphones.

    yes it starts to be annoying, 4 days and nothing on the "known issues" thread 🙂

    I too am having the same issues. The audio quality is really low and its immersion breaking.

    @pauldelestrac I agree. I think it wise that it's updated, because people will just keep making threads about known issue or talking about them in other threads people created, like the Sons of Ragnar bug I have. Something to think about.

    I had a audio problem so I changed from bitstream to pcm and it worked perfect sound.
    I hope this helps someone out there.

    First, let me say thank you so very much for putting so much time and effort into this.

    I first noticed the abysmal audio in the opening moments of the game, during the cutscenes as a child. I heard some of the characters talk and was completely confused about the audio quality. Some characters sound like they're talking through a tin can. It's not all terrible, but sometimes I'll be greeted by some random person in a town somewhere and I legitimately have to ask myself, "Did Ubisoft have to have some of these voice actors work from home? Recorded with a $10 webcam? Then compress all their dialogue into a 1 MB zip so they could email it?" I honestly didn't notice the balance or ambient sound quality issues until I saw this post, now I can never unhear it. Props to @xrayspex_73 for pointing out the issue with the cutting out of audio with the Hybrid controls selection, turned that off and haven't had an issue since. I hope Ubisoft takes this seriously and can give this gorgeous game and beautiful soundtrack the presentation it deserves.

    @spektrumgg I've played for 1 hour and turned the game off. I won't turn it on until there is no fix. It's unacceptable to release a AAA game that costs 50$ with such audio quality. Ubisoft has been messing with players for so long and yet they still manage to get away with it. I really hoped for some great adventure in the nordic world but I forgot it's Ubisoft.

    @tadiian already asked for my refund, but I don't see that many people doing it, so again, it's a win for Ubisoft

    @palpyisback Yeah, we should probably be mindful that the devs are most likely taking it easy and trying to recover from that scare. I'm really glad nothing worse happened, but a situation like that can be pretty traumatising and exhausting either way. I hope they respond to this as soon as they're able and address the issue at hand (which is still significant and inexcusable), but their physical and mental health comes first. I guess this is just a reminder to keep it civil and remember that those are humans in the dev team too. I saw some really disturbing responses to the situation on Friday and I don't think anyone deserves to receive messages like that.

    @watchyoiz where exactly you changed that?

    @shuar I've requested one. If it were fixed, I'd move on but this is on a new level of unacceptable.

    And then i wonder how none of the gaming media outlets out there that review the game mentioned this ... There is no way no one noticed this at least on the PC port.
