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.


Have the above-mentioned tips helped you with the audio and no sound issues in Dying Light 2? We would love to know if there is any other tip that might have worked for you. In the coming few days, there are going to be tons of more content covered about this game, so do stay tuned to our Dying Light 2 section.
