Voice tech to be rolled across online giant's titles

NCsoft has partnered with voice chat technology providers Vivox to enable voice support across its range of titles.

By using the tech, players will be able to use an NCsoft-branded communication portal to communicate across NCsoft's games, while using features such as voice mail and the ability to communicate via regular phones and text messages.

“Voice is a significant feature for the ongoing development of the NCsoft community,” said Peter Jarvis, vice president of operations at NCsoft North America.

“By partnering with Vivox, we will be able to offer our players a commanding set of communication tools that will simplify communications amongst the player base with far reaching options. Vivox is the clear leader in quality, features and operational excellence and we anticipate a successful integration and long-term relationship.”

Rob Seaver, CEO of Vivox, added: “NCsoft is an industry leader in the advancement of gameplay and engagement of the player community. They recognize the power of a communication solution that is open to all players and lets them communicate effectively and reliably. Vivox is gratified in this collaboration and we look forward to contributing to the advancement of the NCsoft community.”
