How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? All sounds except for a couple random ones disappears.
What should be happening instead? Should have sound
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I don't know. This has been happening to me for quite a while and tonight I realised it only(or mostly) happens on the olympus map.

ALL game audio stops working randomly on the olympus map. I have to completely quit the game and restart for it to come back. Sometimes it happens as early as the character select screen, or any time during the game. I have brought this up on these forums and received no help. I have spoken with support through twitter and online and gone through all the generic steps they suggest to try. I've cleared all the caches, reset my entire console to factory, etc. It seems like the game gets overwhelmed with too many sounds at once or something and then the audio just breaks. Can I please have some help trying to actually fix this?! it is completely gamebreaking.

Hey @Seanskatesalot To confirm you've seen this on others maps outside Olympus? Would it be possible to get a clip of this when it happens?
