Deathloop is out now, and after being critically acclaimed with rave reviews declaring it a game of the yr contender, followers are lastly ready to get their palms on it themselves. However, just a few have run into a difficulty the place they will’t hear Julianna audio when she messages Colt through the radio. Turns out you might need your DualSense controller speaker turned off and didn’t replace the audio settings within the game itself.
The difficulty got here to my consideration when Forbes’ Paul Tassi mentioned not having the ability to hear Julianna’s audio throughout gameplay. Quite a lot of individuals replied telling him that her audio was supposed to be popping out of the DualSense speaker to make it sound like she was talking to the participant through a radio. Tassi had his DualSense speaker audio turned off in his PS5 settings.
Lmao oh my god she’s supposed to be speaking to me by the PS5 controller speaker, however I turned that off as a result of it was annoying me in different video games

Quite a lot of different gamers reported both working into the identical difficulty, or talked about that they’ve turned their DualSense speaker off as nicely. Deathloop doesn’t appear to offer you any notification that the controller speaker is off, and it doesn’t output Julianna’s voice traces by the conventional audio channels routinely if it’s. There’s a toggle within the game’s Audio menu (underneath settings) to disable the DualSense speaker audio, and if you don’t, you’ll merely get odd gaps of silence between Colt’s voice traces (and her subtitles, if you’ve gotten these enabled).
If you play utilizing a headset, nonetheless, and have the DualSense speaker turned off, it is going to output all audio to the headset, so this difficulty solely impacts gamers who use both TV audio system or some type of sound system. This additionally impacts stay streams of Deathloop. If a stream solely takes the audio from the HDMI stream, it received’t transmit Julianna’s voice until you manually toggle the setting within the Audio choices, as shown in the Eurogamer live stream of the early hours of the game.
If your DualSense speaker is disabled, you’ll both need to additionally disable the characteristic in Deathloop’s menu, or reenable the speaker through your PS5 to get the complete Julianna radio dialog. While some see it as a gimmick, others like the extent of immersion it provides, being like a radio within the participant’s palms. We praised the banter between Colt and Julianna as one of many many superb issues about Deathloop, and to not hear one half of these conversations can be a disgrace. However you select to repair the problem, be sure to are getting her dialog to come by.
Deathloop is obtainable now on PS5 and PC.
