The U.S. division of South Korean MMORPG publisher NCSoft has partnered with communications services provider Vivox to deliver support for scalable, full-featured voice chat within and across NCsoft games through an NCsoft branded game communication portal.

Vivox also plans to bring additional features, such as voice fonts, voice mail, and in-and-out of game communication via regular phones and text messages. Vivox has worked with several other high-profile companies to add to their voice communication offerings, including Multiverse, Sony Online Entertainment, and Linden Lab.

NCSoft currently maintains several MMORPGs which can potentially benefit from Vivoxs voice chat and features support, such as Lineage II: The Chaotic Throne, Guild Wars, and Tabula Rasa.

Said NCsoft North Americas vice president of operations Peter Jarvis: Voice is a significant feature for the ongoing development of the NCsoft community. 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.
