Everyone loves killing zombies online with friends, but a lot of the fun of playing online co-op is completely lost if you can’t talk (or talk back) to one another while slaying the undead. One PS3 game that’s suffered from this fate is Dead Nation, whose co-op players have requested voice chat functionality for some time. Well, that frustration is about to end. The developers at Housemarque have confirmed that they will be adding voice chat for online co-op “in the near future.”
Speaking to the PlayStation Blog, the developers had this to say in their note:
“We know some of you are frustrated by the lack of voice chat support in Dead Nation’s online co-op mode. We realize many players have been very eager to join up and start taking care of the zombie nation, and we greatly appreciate the continued support. Therefore, the team is currently working on the addition of voice chat capability and hope to introduce it as quickly as possible. We’ll be sure to keep everyone posted via … our Dead Nation Facebook page on when they can expect the voice chat update.”
So there you have it. You may be growing tired of slashing away at zombies with your friends in silence, but voice chat is coming soon to Dead Nation.
