Star Wars Battlefront will not support in-game voice chat

 

DICE has long been famous for creating games which are very team focused, games where constant communication with your squad can be the difference between life and death, or success and failure. 

This leaves Battlefront in an odd position, not supporting voice chat in-game, which while it has the benefits of avoiding the screams of random people on the internet when they get shot, it also takes away from the team aspect of the game. EA has tweeted that gamers on the PC should use their favorite 3rd party application for voice chat, be it TeamSpeak or even Origin's integrated Voice Chat system. 

 

You can choose your favorite third party software to communicate with friends on PC,

It is very odd for such a big budget game to be missing such a key feature, though in reality it really doesn't make that much of a difference to PC gamers, who typically use their preferred 3rd party app for all games rather than  rely on the game's integrated chat functionality. 

Star Wars Battlefront will be releasing on November 17 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

No different to BF3/BF4 on PC so far as I know? They use the platform voice on the consoles.

It's a cop-out, but they don't care.

Edit: To be fair, Frostbite's netcode has trouble enough with players, tagging voice into that would only make it worse :P
And yet, Siege had near-pefect in-game voice (no lag at all)Quote

I use another program to talk with people that are not currently playing the same game as myself. Games such as League of Legends that don't have voice support (for obvious reasons, coughcoughmosttoxiccommunityevercough), when playing with friends, the voice chatting is actually useful, solo queuing, well I'd rather not hear other people whine and bitch anyway.

I don't like star wars to begin with, but a game like this should have voice chat. I bet it was full of bugs, so they just removed it.Quote

I use Skype or Teamspeak anyway as I don't like depending on game servers for such things.Quote

I've been using Skype since I can remember tbh. In game chat apps were crap, never sensing when you spoke and generally being inferior to Skype. We just do a conference call and we're off Quote

I don't use Skype, Skype can't be trusted there are back doors built into Skype for the NSA.

I would rather use TeamSpeak over Skype any day.Quote
