HD Voice Chat Coming To World of Tanks
Wargaming.net has announced that the #1 integrated voice platform for Social Web, Vivox, will be integrated into World of Tanks.
“When creating World of Tanks it was critical for us to include voice communication capabilities. With proven scalability, numerous live integrations, and best in class quality – partnering with Vivox was an easy decision,” said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming.net. “Vivox Voice makes the gaming experience more natural and helps execute our vision of promoting teamwork. Players will be able to collaborate on battle plans and communicate during combat in the quickest, most intuitive way possible – speech – and Vivox delivers it the best.”
Vivox Voice will let World of Tanks players talk to each other both during the game and prior to combat when compiling a team in the lobby. The voice capabilities are built into the game interface seamlessly so players will be able to interact easily and naturally during tank battles all without having to leave the game or use a 3rd party application.
“Wargaming.net is breaking new ground in the gaming world with World of Tanks,” said Rob Seaver, founder and CEO of Vivox. “Not only does the game allow you to participate in massive tank battles while driving historically accurate machines, but you will be able to build and grow your vehicles into an unstoppable force. We are honored to be a part of this exciting new concept and look forward to witnessing the success of World of Tanks.”
World of Tanks is a free-2-play MMO that is currently in closed beta and will be released in Q1 2011 for the PC. More information about World of Tanks can be found at: http://www.worldoftanks.com
