Dying Light 2 no sound or audio fix – If you are experiencing sound issues in the Steam Version of Dying Light 2, then you can come to the right place. A lot of reports are coming in regarding this. So don’t worry, you are not alone.
Dying Light 2 – No Sound or Audio Bug
After being delayed for almost 2 years, Techland’s most ambitious project is finally here. Dying Light 2, which is a direct sequel to the original Dying Light title, is an ARPG, that combines zombies with open-world parkour. It has only been a few hours since the release has happened, and Steam is already exploding with players rushing to play the game. Despite getting mixed reviews, it has been very well-received by the community, so far.
Don’t get me wrong, Dying Light 2 is an awesome game. But it is riddled with bugs, glitches and technical errors, at the moment. In fact, if you didn’t know, Techland actually let out a tweet a few days ago, asking people not to play it before the Day 1 patch. But the problem is, not everyone uses Twitter, and not everyone is ready to wait for a game that they have been longing to play for so long.
That is why, players who are trying to play the game now, are getting a barrage of bugs and errors. In this article, I am taking a look at an error or bug, that has to be one of the annoying ones. It is the “no sound” or “no audio” bug.
So what is up with this ‘no sound’ bug? Well, It is a bug that a lot of Dying Light 2 players are currently experiencing in the game. The bug is causing the game to go completely mute. The issue is more prominent in versions different from English.
How to fix Audio or Sound issues in Dying Light 2
If you encountered a bug with missing audio in dialogs, here is a quick fix, that will resolve the issue:
- Go to the Steam Library
- Go to Dying Light > Right click > “Properties” > “Language”
- Change language to “English” and close the tab
- Repeat the process, but this time pick your language
This should do the job for most of you. In case it doesn’t, try changing your audio output:
- Set Dying Light 2 to Windowed Mode
- Right-click the speaker in your system tray (windows taskbar, lower right)
- Open Sound Settings
- Under the Sound Tab, make sure your Output Device is the device you wish to hear the sound on
Make sure that you have Spatial Sound or Windows Sonic off. Windows Sonic is a bit buggy at the moment.
A lot of websites might tell you to re-install your audio drivers. Don’t do that! You might end up breaking the sound of your entire PC, in the process of fixing a game. Remember, if your audio driver is corrupted, it won’t affect a single game. It will have an impact on the entire system. If you’re able to hear everything else, you don’t need to reinstall drivers. Try checking out this guide I wrote for COD Vanguard, it has come extra fixes you can try. The issue is similar in both the cases.
Run other games and check your sound. Go for fresh driver installation only if you face the same issue in other games as well. Go to the official website of your Motherboard, and download the drivers from there. Don’t just download from a random website.

That’s all folks!
