MW3 will offer more options for Party Chat
Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling says that if you want to chat privately with your friends while playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, youll probably be able to do so. While the last entry in the series blocked Xbox Lives Party Chat in many of the game modes, Modern Warfare 3 will apparently be much more forgiving.
"The only place where Party Chat should be blocked is Search & Destroy," says Bowling, since thats the only mode where players are meant to have only one life per attack, and allowing dead players to chat with live ones might create an unfair advantage. For all of the other modes, "its about giving options. We will have places where competitive guys go where you might have restrictive voice chat. And then you have an option to maybe play that same mode without the same restrictions if thats the type of player you are."
