Football Superstars MMO to use voice chat tech


CyberSports has teamed up with Vivox to voice-enable its upcoming MMO Football Superstars.

The game, which sees players controlling a virtual footballer on and off the pitch, will use Vivox's hosting to enable scalable voice chat (or, rather, voice taunting) inside the world as well as community features such as buddy lists, presence alerts, voice mail and SMS capabilities.

“Our design goals and user experience requirements for Football Superstars demanded the most stable, scalable and user friendly voice technology available. Vivox was the obvious choice based on their proven performance and operations experience,” said Malcolm Clark, CEO, CyberSports Ltd.

“We’re confident that our players will have the most immersive and advanced voice experience available with the Vivox service. We’ll be bringing market leading voice technology and features to our community with full confidence that our community is in good hands.”

Monty Sharma, vice president of product management and marketing at Vivox, added: “CyberSports has combined the best elements found at any sporting event – social interaction and multiplayer competition - where practice only makes you better and spirited fan interaction raises the passion of the game. We’re proud that CyberSports chose Vivox to contribute to their player experience and bring their innovative world to life.”
