How To Fix FIFA 22 Audio issues on Windows 10 (Steam)

Electronic Arts (EA) finally released their next big addition to their overwhelmingly popular franchise FIFA; FIFA 22. You can now experience your favorite sport in even better graphics than the one from last year, FIFA 21. Currently, you can even try it for 10 hours with EA Play.  But there is no point to do so if you’re facing FIFA 22 audio issues so this guide will tell you how to fix that.

A lot of people are facing this issue. The in-game music would just stop playing and then the sound effects would stop working as well. This would usually happen when dribbling; the sound would cut out and in again and again. And the sounds also sometimes remain shut down even after the match.

Update Sound drivers

Another cause behind why you’re not hearing any sound in FIFA 22 is because of broken or obsolete sound drivers. Most of us don’t really care about sounds that much as long as we are able to hear them so we mostly neglect updating drivers related to sound. You can manually get the latest sound drivers by installing them on your computer. We recommend Realtek Onboard Audio.

Update Windows

I know, I know. No one wants to do this, and you have a good reason not to, but there’s a chance that FIFA 22 is facing some compatibility issues on your computer. All you have to do is download all the latest Windows updates to make things work.
