Dark Souls PC Won’t Support Voice Chat

Earlier this week, specs for the PC version of Dark Souls showed up on Gamestop, and they seemed to indicate that the game would support voice chat. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case.

Namco, responding to an inquiry from Eurogamer, confirmed that this was a mistake. “Dark Souls: Prepare to Die edition will not support in-game chat,” Namco Said. “This is a listing error.”

So be warned, people. When you’re shouting to the heavens about how damned difficult Dark Souls is, you’ll be doing so to yourself. Not that it’s a tragedy, mind you, since Dark Souls won’t be optimized for PC.

Well the original game purposefully left out voice chat. So its not really something to fuss about. Anyways there are plenty of applications used for voice chatting on PC anyway. Hell steam has a chat feature built into the community!

Worse things have happened. Battlefield, a series previously ubiquitous for having such great teamplay features, lacks in-game VOIP for the 3rd iteration thanks to some wonderful “social gaming” ideas EA/DICE decided to introduce to the series.

There’s always third-party VOIP like Ventrilo and Teamspeak.

I’ve always thought Dark and Demons Souls lack a ‘GAME OVER’, so each time you die as soul, you lose some vitality ’till you break. That would be a reason to shout to heavens.
