Mumble is a free, low-latency, and high quality voice program for gaming. It features noise suppression, automatic gain control, and low latency audio with support for multiple audio standards. Mumble includes an in-game overlay compatible with most open-source and commercial 3D applications.

Please note that Mumble works with all games as a regular voice chat application.
