The loud chase music is awful. Way, way too loud. I can't hear anything over it. It was nice when for a couple weeks chase music was lower and I could actually hear things, but then suddenly it went back to being ear-blasting and has stayed that way since.
Adding loud music to a game is not how you balance it. Make sounds the correct volume, and then let players adjust the volume of the in-game music. Chase music shouldn't cause deafness to cover up sounds that are too loud. I mean, I assume that's why the chase music is so loud with no volume-slider option. I've played other games that include stealth and they let players completely turn off the music; they don't force players to go deaf from it just to cover up the enemy's sounds. If you'd rather hear footsteps than music, that's cool with them, it's the player's choice.
This is a huge problem. When the chase music went back to being too loud, I started playing just one match a day as survivor and killer to do the dailies, that's it. When you add the loud chase music to all the other problems with the game on the PS4, it's just not worth putting time into.
And even as a horror game having deafningly loud music is almost counter intuitive to the point of it being a horror game, since once that music starts playing it isn't scary, since you loose the ability to sense the small details about the game, something that I thought was great.
Seems kinda like they wanted to meme on the sound development team and just add this so nobody could hear them footsteps they worked hard on.
I read this and immediately imagined them replacing the chase music with "Never gonna give you up"
I am going to throw a tantrum if that isn't there on April 1st.
Can we please have this sorted?
If ppl can replace character pictures and perk icons with custom variants, why cant we replace the chase music with this, lol.
I agree 100%. I'm a spirit main and the loud music is sometimes a hindrance in my tracking senses
yeah, while were at please make survivor grunts louder because nobody uses a decent headset in 2019. My movement as a killer is much slower and I have no gap closers, I need more help please dev. Ty
*Goes through corn. Music starts playing making me jump on a chair* WHAT?! WHERE?! Where is it?!
Top 10 perks means little to nothing in this game when the overwhelming majority of perks are garbage tier perks that never see play.
it's nice to have a lot of feedback, it's a thing that needs to be fixed
It did get changed, survivors went WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! and it got changed back.
Survivors command and bhvr execute
Well they do buy all the cosmetics, just Look at the ratio of killer cosmetics to survivor.
Doesnt help that the killer ability to hear survivors gets ... diminished every time they tweak the sound or engine.
First time i played survivor i was overwheöled how loud a claudette is, for the survivor player atleast.
When they tweaked sound occlusion the first time, i think you couldnt hear gens on the other side.
It's even worse with buildings, especially haddonfield. Not helping they mess up generator auras too.
Chase musica cancels out stridor
Chase music cancels out hearing footsteps when survivors stun/flashlight you
Chase music + any survivors spamming sound actions makes sound tracking damn near impossible
Also agree, that chase music can cause hearing damage it kicks in so loud.
I relate to this way too much...XD
Not only does chase music cancel stidor, but also end game collapse. I totally lost an injured camoflaugette the other day. No big deal, can't get a 4k everytime, but if I'm using a perk so I can hear moans of pain, it would be nice to actually be able to get full use out of it.
Not only the chase music that's too loud either. The struggle music when you first get hooked is obnoxiously loud. I can't hear my teammates communicating through headset and I have to yell into my headset like someone that's hearing impaired.
Also the music while your slugged is too loud. I know they want the hatch to be hard to find, and I can appreciate that, but it's so loud.
Get that ear wax out.
Chase music seems fine to me.
Wouldn't that just make the music louder anyway?
And are you saying a slider for music volume is bad? Because that's all everyone wants
Yeah you're full of ######### survivor main and have no clue. Without a headset you can't hear jack, and with it all you hear is circus chase music. Its akin to if when you survivor turn around instead of seeing the killer and the red stain you see a wall of red light, completing negating one of your senses. This is worse because there's one killer, at least you'd have 3 survivors still doing gens etc.
No, it means some of us can hear survivors through the music.
Some people on here legit want the easy way. No surprise there though.
Spirit mains would have a field day, she is already OP as it is in instances where she can hear exactly where the survivor is grunting. We don’t need it broken.
Gotta disagree with you here. If I'm wearing a decent head set (I do) and running Stridor and you're injured and loss hearing of grunts of pain because the music is too loud, it's not wanting my hand held. It's wanting to get full use out of perks.
Also, it's not even all from a competitive advantage standpoint. I just think the music is annoyingly loud if I have to shout into my headset like some old man because I can't even hear my own voice. It's just obnoxious and unfun (like mashing x to struggle).
Anyone notice footsteps are impossible to hear right next to you, but become louder the further away a survivor gets before fading off?
No. Being able to hear survivors’ FOOTSTEPS all the time will be insanely busted.
@malloymk Yesterday I was doing a Spirit ritual (I never play her) and I could hear exactly where the survivor was grunting while I was phasing.
Not saying I’m a Spirit expert but if I can hear it that clear, I can’t imagine some killers not having an extremely good advantage... and most of all with a character that you can only half way predict where she is coming from.
Spirit phase walking is fine as it is, but literally that's just one killer.
Also, the music is just too loud period. For killers and survivors. If Stridor is effected my chase and end game music, then there definitely is an issue.
You can't argue with survivors, they will anything to annoying killers
