How to fix malfunctioning audio and sound in God of War PC?
Returning to the main question, let’s discuss the workarounds you can try if you are unable to hear audio or the in-game audio is crackling:
1) First and foremost, update your audio drivers. This is a common reason why you may be unable to hear in-game audio in God of War PC. Open the Device Manager app from Start Menu > Control Panel and pinpoint the audio drivers your PC uses, under the Sound, video, and game controllers section. Right-click on the drivers and select Update.
If the above doesn’t solve the issue, right-click on the audio drivers again and select Uninstall this time. Restart your PC. On booting up, your PC will automatically re-install the required drivers. Sound issues are common after a Windows Update – trying to update the audio driver or reinstalling it can help in such situations.
2) If the above-mentioned workaround doesn’t work, make sure that your PC is detecting the correct audio device. If you use a controller, it is possible that Windows is detecting it as a speaker. This can cause audio to disappear – read this article to know how to fix it.
3) If you are hearing crackling sounds, make sure that the speaker or the headphones you are using isn’t damaged. Try unplugging your audio output device and plugging it back in – ensure that the wires are securely plugged into the ports. If this doesn’t work, try using a different audio device and check whether the issue persists. If the crackling noise doesn’t persist in other devices, it’s time you replace your speakers.
