New World has been officially released on the PC, but it seems that many players have been experiencing audio and sound issues. According to the report, PC players are not getting any sound from New World. If you’re one of the players who have the same issue in the game, this guide will help you fix the New World sound issue.
How to Fix New World Sound Issue
In this troubleshooting guide, we will start with the most basic fixes that you can try to solve the New World audio problem.
Setting the Default Audio Device
Sometimes, the default audio settings are changed without our knowledge. While this does not happen regularly, there’s a chance that your installed software or new updates have changed it.
To fix this, simply click the audio icon on your taskbar and choose the speakers connected to your computer. This usually fixes almost every sound issue on your machine.
Update Your Audio Driver
If the first method did not work for you, there’s a chance that your machine doesn’t have the latest audio drivers.
You have two options to get the latest update for your audio devices. The first is by simply getting the latest update from your manufacturer, which is a little bit time-consuming.
If you want to make your life easier, you can use Driver Booster to automatically fetch the latest audio driver for your PC. Download Driver Booster here.
