Solution 1 – Select Language in Steam
Note: This first tip mentioned below will only work if you have bought the game on Steam, and may not be compatible with the copy from Epic Games Store.
- Open Steam, and go to your games Library
- Look for the Dying Light 2 game
- Right-click on it, and then select Properties
- Now go to Language option, and from here select your desired available language
- Force-select the language once again even if it is already selected
Once this is done, close the Steam client and restart it. This should fix your audio issues in Dying Light 2 in most cases.
Solution 2 – Update Default Format for Speakers
Another fix you can try is to update the Default Format for your playback device i.e. speakers, headphones, etc. to a different sample rate and bit depth. You can do that by following these simple steps:
- From the lower-right of your Windows system tray, right-click the Speaker icon
- Click on Sounds and then go to the Playback tab
- Now select the device you want to output the audio on
- Right-click on the device, and select Properties
- Go to the Advanced tab
- Change the default format to 24 bit, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality)
You also need to make sure to have Spatial Sound or Windows Sonic off. They are not stable at the moment and have been known to cause audio problems and glitches with a number of games.
You might find some websites telling you to redownload your audio drivers and while it may seem like they are making a point, there is really no point in re-downloading them. You might even end up breaking your audio system. If the sound is working fine for other windows applications. Then your Audio Drivers are not the ones to blame. Therefore do not try to tinker with it.
