Although most PCs these days come well-equipped to handle high frame rate video games and immersive sound, many video game lovers want more. To enhance the audio experience, many players use a sound card or an external DAC. Now, it happens so that only players using an external DAC encountered a black screen on launching Tales of Arise. A Steam user, spratt brattler, came up with a solution to this issue. To fix the issue, you will have to lower your audio bitrate. If your audio bitrate is set too high, the full-motion video will not play and show a black screen. The user set the bitrate to 96k and tested the game; the black screen issue was gone. Many players were surprised that their DAC was causing this issue.

We hope we were able to solve the issue you were facing. Stay tuned for more such updates!
