Destruction AllStars’ community manager has taken to Reddit to confirm that it hears you “loud and clear” regarding the game’s inability to switch off voice chat entirely. “We're working on a fix for these issues ASAP,” they stressed, adding that it may be able to provide a timeline for said update later this week. In the meantime, developer Lucid Games recommends using the associated Activity Card to mute lobbies.
Elsewhere in their post, the community manager added that it’s “heard that some of you would like some epic music to wreck to”. They continued: “While the lack of music during a match is intended (it's not a bug!), we'll certainly be reviewing this feedback.” They reiterated that “this is only the beginning”, with new game modes, AllStars, and much more due out all throughout 2021 and beyond. For now, if you’re looking to get started with the game, check out our Destruction AllStars guide.
