Multi-Player At Its Best - With built-in support for voice communication, players can speak and interact with other squad members as they coordinate attacks, discuss tactics, warn each other of incoming enemies or just hold casual conversation. An easy to read HUD displays critical information such as objective status, ammunition and other key in-game support.
