Summary: When launching the game (before getting to the start menu), an error window appears. I've tried the fix here, but couldn't find any files with the words "sound" or "bank" in them. Game crashes after I press "Okay"
How to Reproduce: It happens every time I load the game. This is also the first time I've played it since the update. I have used mods in the past, but the issue occurs without mods.

Deleting them is better.
EDIT: Also, what mods did you use?
Mods Used: PartyScreenEnhancements, ImprovedGarrisons, CulturedStart
Mods I tried, but never got to work: Harmony, ChangingCulture, NobleTitles, RTSCamera, RTSCamera.CommandSystem

I just reverified with all the mods disabled and everything was fine. I will try again with all of the mods deleted.

Delete this entire folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord\Sounds\PC
EDIT: And then verify files again.

This seems to have solved the issue. Thanks for the help!
My pleasure. About the mods that aren't working, do you have the below mod installed? It has all the basic dependencies needed for mods to work. Before you install it, uninstall Harmony because this mod comes with it.
And a personal piece of advise. Stay away from mods that touch your save game, it's not worth it. Because when Taleworlds releases a new version of Bannerlord, you might be unable to play the new version of Bannerlord with a save game that a mod previously edited, and you would have to start a new game in order to play on the new version of Bannerlord.
Almost every Bannerlord mod specifies in the description whether or not it edits the save game so it's not hard to find out.

Hi, have the same issue and deleting C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord\Sounds\PC and restoring the files didn't work. I also tried deleting C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord\Sounds completely which didn't work. I even deleted the game, deleted C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord to get a fresh install and that didn't work either. Can you please advise?

Are you, or have you ever used mods?
Is your error message identical?

Did you do all of the below when you uninstalled the game?

Clean Install
The clean install is removing every single game-related file from your computer and installing the game again. Why do you need to remove the game while you just want to remove the modifications? Unfortunately, some of the modifications do not just add a new modules folder but also change or adds contents to the existent modules folder. Without a reinstall, we can't be sure those files are unchanged.

To perform a Clean Install, Uninstall the game. You can do that by right-clicking the game on Steam Library and selecting Delete Local Content. Delete all folders related to the game that remains after the uninstallation. The folders that might have files inside:
Steam: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Epic: C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Mount and Blade II Bannerlord
C:\ProgramData\Mount and Blade II Bannerlord

Note: You'll need to allow Windows to display hidden folders and files to see the ProgramData folder and its contents.
