As a per summary.

Right from the get go I've had * all party banter. Think I  took Cora and Vetra down to Eos my 1st visit, 30 hours and 2 maxed planets (more than 100% viability) and I haven't heard a peep, no matter what combination i use. They talk a good amount in the Nomad -think its environmental positional  triggers. But nothing on foot. So super sad.

 

Tried reinstalling since, tried loading the auto created Mission saves from much earlier, Turned of subtitles, cloud saves and origin in game. Idled for 15 minutes on foot and in the nomad.

I even tried crossing my fingers and clicking my heels 3 times. They still don't banter.

Had this bug in DA:I annnnnnd now I have it Andromeda. Honestly this bug is game breaking for me, I don't even want to play until it's fixed. I thought maybe it was because I started playing off of my trial character so I started a new character. About 3 hours into Eos just running around doing stuff, several different squad compositions and I am getting nothing, nothing at all. Drack, Peebee - Peebee, Vetra. Heard Liam and Vetra are supposed to have a lot to say to eachother. Not for me. The only thing I can remember is when Vetra pointed out something about the environment when we were in the Nomad, but I think it was scripted and not just general banter. 

 

I hope they at least acknowledge this is an issue.

I'm having the same problem and it seems they'll address it in the next patch. No ETA on the patch though. Could be a matter of days.. or weeks. I don't hear any banter at all. Even in the nomad.

I know. I have the same problem. I can't play like this. Why do we have to deal with the same gamebreaking bug again??

Seeing as Ian Frazier has stated this bug has been identified and will be fixed in an incoming patch, can this be added to the known issues list so people don't need to scan through 30 pages of threads to see if it's already been reported on? Thanks.

I have the same bug. It's about as gamebreaking as bugs get. Frown Real disappointed.

Having the same problem, in the same way - no banter on the ground, regardless of party configuration.  I do hear some while in the Nomad.  I know a fix is being worked on, but I hope it's at or near the absolute top of the list.  This is a game-breaking bug for me--just playing the campaign in relative silence.
