  • It wouldn't be a Beta without the potential for bugs! If you stumble on something that prevents you from leveraging the new features you can use the Bug Reporter template available through the Wwise Launcher "?" Menu.


Note: This beta version cannot be used for official release and will not be supported beyond the launch of Wwise 2021.1

Reminder: Audiokinetic will be closed from December 23, 2020 until January 3rd, 2021.

Question: How do I download the Wwise 2021.1 Beta? 


  • In the Wwise Launcher, make sure you are SIGNED IN and go to the Wwise tab. 
  • Open the left-most "Install New Version" toggle. Change it from "Latest" to "Special". 
  • Ensure > is set to a 2021.1 version and click Install.

Question: Where can I find the Wwise 2021.1 Beta Release Notes?


Make sure you select the "SDK" package and a variant of the Windows platform when you install Wwise 2021.1 Beta with the Wwise Launcher. You will find links to the SDK Documentation in the "?" menu next to the Wwise installation; look for the "Release Notes" section in the CHM. Installing the "Offline Documentation" package will allow you to set the Wwise "Help -> Documentation Source" to "Offline", enabling the opening of the relevant Wwise Help page if you press F1 or a '?' button in the Wwise Authoring tool.
