War Thunder

Gaijin’s free to play online flight sim War Thunder is a pretty damn decent title if you’re into your dogfighting and it’s been improved further today with a new feature.

A feature that was missing fron the game  is the ability to communicate easily with other squadron members but thankfully you can now scream at your team with the addition of voice chat. Gaijin has added the Vivox-powered voice chat to the game from today and it’s been integrated into the game client.

“Voice communication is a natural and the most comfortable way of coordination between players” – said Anton Yudintsev, Head of Gaijin Entertainment, – “Now pilots have an easy and high quality method of communicating with each other using integrated voice chat”. developers highly appreciate the possibilities of the voice chat feature both for new players and for more experienced pilots fighting in squads. In-game voice communication reveals new opportunities for newcomers’ training and cooperative gameplay in the veteran squads.

I’m not sure if it’s something I would use in War Thunder as the action gets pretty frantic at times but it’s a nice addition nevertheless.
