The audio through my headset sounds muffled and off. I'm on PS5 and it's not my headset, I tested earlier.

Is anyone else experiencing weird, muffled audio?

    I've not noticed anything on PC. I'm using a dedicated sound card.

    What exactly is wrong with the audio? Dbd is known for its sound issues but i specifically want to know about this mid chapter’s new sound bugs? Are you referring to audio occlusion or just sounds in general? Or are survivors’ moans of pain muffled ?

    Same issue, also on ps5 on headset. The sound was fine yesterday but today after patch it sounds muffled and just very off. Its hard to concentrate or tell which direction killer is coming from. It's all sounds: music, grunts, heartbeat, teammates, gens, ect... I tested other games and the audio is normal.

    And now the sound is fixed on xbox lol.

    Never liked this game on PS4 scratch marks barley visible etc. not sure about ps5 tho.

    someone said earlier the V-sync got turned on automatically. Maybe check the game settings.

    Having the same issue on PS5. Glad I'm not crazy

    Sounds in general are bugged.

    Menu sounds, perk selecting sounds, in game sounds, everything.

    So I found a work around for the bug until they can fix it on their end. The patch seemed to cause a problem with the 3D audio in the game for the ps5 version. So If you go into ps5 setting-- Sound- -Audio Output-- then scroll down to Enable 3D audio for Headphones and turn it off. The sound should be back to normal or very close to it when you get back in the game. Hope they can fix this soon so we don't have to keep turning it off and on for different games. Hope this helps, it was driving me crazy.

    It would be a miracle if there was a patch where it didn’t break sound

    @MandyTalk sorry for the ping but is this issue known by BHVR? Seems to be happening quite a bit.

    The 3D tip helped, but I hope they find a fix for this.

    Edit. helped at first. But when I closed and opened the game again it came back. Could not hear spirits omnisound.

    I have a whole different issue, the music randomly cuts off ingame and then resumes. This only happens during trials.
