Star Wars Battlefront No Chat System


Sep 21, 2014
EA has confirmed that Star Wars Battlefront will not offer its own in-game chat system on consoles or PC.

A tweet from the official EA Star Wars account said the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Battlefront will use the "PlayStation 4 and Xbox One built-in party system for in-game chat." Meanwhile, DICE has instructed PC players to "choose your favorite third-party software to communicate with friends on PC."

There are a variety of solid VoIP options for PC players, including a built-in voice chat system on Origin. Console players who want to chat, on the other hand, will need to join a party. Strategy and communication for Battlefront's 40-player Walker Assault mode is particularly important, especially on the Rebel side.

We have followed up with Electronic Arts in an attempt to get more details. We'll update this post with anything we hear back.
