Audio with the Sound Resource

Excalibur supports any audio the browser supports like .wav, .mp3, and .ogg. Due to mixed browser support you may wish to specify a list of source files and codecs, the order of the files specifies order of preference (we recommend mp3, wav).

Pass an instance of Sound to a Loader to preload it. Once a sound is loaded, you can play it. You can pass an argument from 0.0 - 1.0 into play in order to play the sound at that volume.

const game = new Engine({...});
const sound = new Sound('./path/to/my.mp3', './path/to/fallback.wav');

const loader = new Loader([sound]);
await game.start(loader);;

See the examples or API documentation for Sound for additional features available such as looping, volume setting, and more.
