The audio issues are not limited to the PC version of the game.

I've been playing on Xbox One X and Reach suffers from muffled sound when firing guns and volume issues with character voices, which seem to range from impossible to hear one minute then incredibly loud the next.

I hope they fix it, because the game looks and plays fantastically at 4K 60 FPS.

We've slightly updated the article to reflect said problems are also present on the Xbox version of the game. Thanks!

Then you're the only person in the world that is not affected.

Yes, it's slightly difficult to tell the difference when you aren't directly comparing each system configuration with a fine toothed comb, magnifying glass, and laboratory equipment. Also doesn't help with a properly calibrated surround sound system tuned with normalized volume.

The sound difference is noticeable from the first iteration of the game and I believe I heard they are already working on a fix.

Yeah I noticed it on launch on my PC. Everything seemed fine, but the guns seemed muffled. The servers, visuals, and everything else are perfect though.

Whats your gamertag I have One X and an Alienware Alpha how do you want to lose?

timotim561d ago

Haha...well if you're that good, I'd rather play together instead of against you. Too often they pair me with bums...

Only time I stop playing halo is when my hands give out or I fail to pay the electric company.
