Does The Texas Chain Saw Massacre have voice chat? The 1974 horror classic has joined the ranks of the asymmetrical horror genre with its own terrifying match-based game. Choose to play as either a killer or a victim before being plonked into one of the movie’s iconic locations, where a genre-unique seven players fight for the win.
With these larger teams (well, a larger killer team), it would be pretty useful to be able to talk to your fellow killers or survivors. As we presume it would be in a survival situation like this, teamwork is essential in a horror game, so revealing survivor locations or details of your progress towards any of the TCM exits would only help you achieve success. Not every game in the genre does voice chat the same way, so here’s what you need to know about The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’s system.
