Hi-Rez Studios announced earlier that its upcoming MMO, Global Agenda, will include voice chat features powered by Vivox.
The futuristic ‘spy-fi’ game, which is due to be released early next year, will have an in-game push-to-talk system that will allow players to coordinate missions, and in-game news broadcasts that update players on victories and events. If players sign up for the Global Agenda subscription, which opens up more elite-level missions, they will also be able to take advantage of an out of game voice chat system, allowing them to talk to other Global Agenda players while browsing the net or playing other games.
“Global Agenda’s combat is very team oriented, requiring close and real-time coordination between teammates in a mission,” said Todd Harris, executive producer at Hi-Rez Studios. “Voice provided by Vivox allows our players to easily communicate with each another without requiring a separate, non-integrated solution. Our beta community has rated the voice quality to be superb and we are excited to work with Vivox to bring this capability to our player base.”
