Star Wars: Battlefront will not contain voice chat on PC, according to DICE.
This will either upset you or won't. Either way, it's not supported on the PC version. For console users, Battlefront will utilize the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One built-in party system for in-game chat.
The reason behind the lack of party-chat on PC wasn't made clear, but according to the official SWB Twitter account, players will instead have to use a third-party software to communicate vocally.
So Skype, TeamSpeak, Ventrilo, or whatever you and your buddies prefer.
@RaiderGaming15 You can choose your favorite third party software to communicate with friends on PC
