There’s a lit­tle more per­son­al­ity to your AI squad­mates th­ese days, with an al­most con­stant level of chat­ter thanks to ran­domly cho­sen sound­bites – about how they’re look­ing for­ward to go­ing home for din­ner or to see a loved one – that oc­ca­sion­ally make for some fine non se­quiturs. You can now chip in too, with a sprawl­ing menu of emotes, shouts and even songs ac­ti­vated us­ing the D-pad or, more ef­fi­ciently, through a ra­dial menu con­trolled by the Dual Shock 4 touch­pad, mean­ing you’re never more than a quick swipe away from the massed chant of “E-D-F! E-D-F!” that is this se­ries’ heart-thump­ing trade­mark. All told it’s a cheery, re­lent­lessly pos­i­tive way of fac­ing down the pos­si­ble end of the hu­man race.
