First, ensure that your audio device drivers are all updated to their latest versions. This can be done through Windows Device Manager:
- Open Windows Device Manager
- Open the Audio Inputs and Outputs list of devices
- Right-click on your audio device and choose "Update Driver"
In-Game Volume Sliders
If sound effects are cut-off or "staticky", check the in-game settings menu and try adjusting any lowered volume sliders back to maximum, and control game volume with your system’s volume settings instead.
If audio for the game isn't playing at all, it's possible that your computer may be trying to play sound through a game controller. If you're using a controller, make sure that it isn't being recognized as an audio device.
