Also noticed it right away. I was really excited for this, jumped straight in after setting up the new xbox and as soon as I was in the hall as young Eivor, I noticed it. I called the missis in and asked if she thought it sounded odd and she basically said, "it sounds like you're speakers are playing from a tin can". I went into the audio settings with the xbox and played with all the different audio options thinking maybe it was the console or speakers, and basically found the least terrible sounding was just plain old stereo and endured for now. I retested it later and noticed by diving into water over and over again with each different setting, the splash gave off a distinct (ear wrenching) different sound for each setting. Still ended up switching back to boring old stereo though.
Did you start to play Valhalla before the initial game updates were released?
- Started on release; nothing has changed
What is your platform, and if on PC, what are your system specs? (CPU, GPU, RAM, etc.)
- Xbox Series X
What is your audio set-up? Are you using a headset (wired or wireless?), a speaker system, a surround sound system, etc.?
- Samsung Q800T Soundbar with Wireless Rear Speakers
What audio output is in use? 7.1, 5.1, Surround, Stereo?
- Tried them all, stereo at the moment all the rest were more horrid
A video demonstrating the issues you are experiencing.
- I don't quite understand this. If you're reviewing the video with the same cassette Sony Walkman headphones used in testing, how can you tell?

@ubi-borealis this issue has just happened again to me as well.
I’d previously stopped bothering to even try upgrading the gear over and over due to the constant resets. But It’s so consistent now, I’ve now entirely given up using the gear entirely. Each time it occurs I lose ship, bird, mount and jomsviking cosmetics that had the pack in use.
This has been an issue (amongst many) since November last year and before ubi asks; I’m not going to provide videos and screenshots etc of the issue, this forum has more than enough info to get it sorted in a hot fix due several months ago.
It’d be nice to see more focus on bug fixes like this one rather than releasing extra content (like additional cats to trip over in Ravensthorpe).
