Sound doesn't work

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • BUILD #: Hotfix 4087
  • PLATFORM: Steam
  • OS: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

:question: DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). Limit to ONE issue per thread.

Sound is completely ruined with hotfix 4087. Only thing you hear is music, and sounds of settlers, military, etc. randomly fade in and fade out. This leaves the game utterly unplayable, because you can’t know when your age up was complete, when your colony was under attack, when certain building was complete, etc. You don’t hear anything back when you click units. You don’t hear sounds of firearms. It’s an utter mess.

I had a vacation that I was looking forward to play the game, but the hotfix 4087 came just in time and blew up the game for me. I had reported this issue at numerous places, and some other players mentioned that they faced the same issue, but guess no one is listening on the other end.
