If you are looking for a voice chat in the all-new game Aliens: Fireteam Elite, we are sorry to say that there is none. The absence of a voice chat in a co-op multiplayer game is uncommon. However, this has sparked a debate among players. Read this article to know more about it.
Aliens Fireteam Elite: Does it require a voice chat?
There are many applications these days that can allow you to communicate with your friends while playing a co-op game. Some of the most popular examples would be Discord and Mumble. However, most co-op games usually include an in-game voice chat to make it easier for players. Sometimes applications like Discord can hamper the in-game sound experience if you are using low-quality headphones or microphones. In-game voice chats are integrated well with the game and hence maintain all in-game experiences. Plus, it is easier to control. However, most players seem to do well with Discord too. Aliens: Fireteam Elite lets you team up with two other teammates and defeat the force of aliens. The game does require some amount of coordination between teammates. So, how should teammates communicate between themselves in-game?
How can you communicate in the game?
Aliens: Fireteam Elite has some features that will allow you to communicate with your teammates. There are in-game emotes, and you can pin locations on the map as well. What we can conclude from this is that the developers wanted to give players an option to choose whether they want voice chat or not. A Steam user, Elysion has made a very valid point on this discussion thread. If there is an in-game voice chat, several players would assume that the correct way to play the game is by using voice chat. This would impose unnecessary rules and would cause chaos. Some players pointed out that there is no in-game text chat system as well.
Whether the developers will add an in-game voice chat later on is still unknown. But, when applications like Discord are available, players can create their own personal voice chat session in Aliens: Fireteam Elite if they want to.
