Audio Problem (in-game narration and speech)

Game Version:

  • Build (problem start from 1 Dec 2019)
  • Platform (Steam)


When I play the campaigns, the in-game narration/speech disappeared, but only a sound “dong” before showing the text from the characters.

With reference to some players who encountered the same problem, it was found that this may be related to the audio device issue. Personally I got multiple sound devices such as the speakers, audio interface, guitar multi-effect, and wireless headset adapter that plugged into my computer, though I did not change the setting of it before the problems kick in. I figure that now I can hear the narration when i changed the output to the wireless headset.

Reproduction Steps:

  1. I think the programmer should look into the design of the sound output because i have heard many buddies encountered the audio problems like some of the sounds are muted with no reason.
  2. on the setting page, there are also no configuration for the audio output.
