Requesting New Sound Resources

The fastest way of requesting a new sound asset for the game is to create a new ticket for those assets on our project management tool. When you create that ticket, ensure that the following is definitely done on it:

  • The component is selected as "music/sound"
  • Add one of the developers mentioned below in the CC list in the ticket.

Roadmap for Sound

Sound is being implemented in unknown Horizons from the ground up. We are currently building a scalable system that will support adding new sounds within the game rapidly. Once the base system for sound is done, we will start with interface sounds, then tier 1 buildings and their walkers.

For a detailed listing of whats coming next in sound in Unknown Horizons, please see the Roadmap for Sound in our project management tool.
