A glitch on the newly launched Overwatch map, Horizon Lunar Colony, is making it much harder for players to hear who’s coming to kill them.
Since the map dropped, numerous players have reported widespread sound loss on Horizon, including enemy footsteps, gunfire, and certain ultimate abilities. Reddit user Feywhelps claims that the sound loss occurs randomly after death on the map, and can only be restored by restarting the entire application.
Blizzard is aware of the issue and working on a fix, but does not have an ETA yet, according to a Reddit response by lead software engineer Bill Warnecke. Hopefully the developer devises a solution soon, because the inability to hear certain cues—like those of Junkrat’s or Solider: 76’s ultimate abilities—can put a player at a serious disadvantage.
On the more upbeat side of Overwatch news, data miners digging through the game’s newest update may have found the Doomfist tease that fans have waited so long for.
