A lot of people are already playing BioWare's latest game Anthem, despite the game only going on official release this week, but they're also encountering a load of weird errors with the game. One we've encountered ourselves is the Anthem Sound Stops Working bug, which is a real pain.
Basically, as the name suggests, at some random point while playing Anthem all the sound in the game will cut out completely. Is there a way to fix this annoying problem, or will we have to wait for a patch? We've got the answer below.
How to Fix Anthem Sound Stops Working Bug
The first thing to point out is, this bug was present in the beta and was reported, yet is still present in the live version - albeit the pre-release version for pre-order and EA Access subscription customers. It's deeply annoying that a beta bug such as this made it into the final version of the game.
There does not appear to be any obvious cause of this bug. You literally will be playing Anthem normally, and the sound will just cut out completely, for apparently no reason. It's deeply frustrating.
So is there a fix for the Anthem Sound Stops Working problem? Unfortunately, as of writing, the only way to fix the bug is to exit the game and restart. Players, including ourselves, have tried everything: continuing to play, messing with the audio settings, messing with Windows audio settings with the game minimized, nothing seems to work.
Hopefully this bug will get eliminated in the final launch version, because at the moment, it's really interfering with players' enjoyment of Anthem. And these are the players who paid extra to get it...
