3D Audio Returns

F1 2021 has had some rocky issues when it comes to the PlayStation 5 version of the game.

When Patch 1.04 was released on July 15th, it was noted that the Ray Tracing option had been removed on the PS5 due to instability issues. The developers noted that they were aiming to have this issue resolved as quickly as possible. It was later enabled once again in the following update.

But it wasn’t long until a new issue with F1 2021 arose on the PS5, as 3D Audio was disabled in Patch 1.06 due to certain audio issues.

Thankfully though, the latest patch has arrived and the issue has been resolved as 3D Audio has returned in F1 2021 on the PlayStation 5. Users will be required to download the latest update before they can use 3D Audio once more.
