WARHAMMER TEAMS WITH XFIRE TO ENHANCE IN-GAME USER EXPERIENCE WITH ‘PRO VOICE’
All-New, High-Quality Voice Chat Solution Allows for up to 50 Players
MENLO PARK, CA (May 29, 2009) – Today, Warhammer® Online and Xfire announced ‘Pro Voice,’ an all-new high quality voice chat solution for gamers.
Xfire, committed to enhancing the gaming experience, can now offer gamers an all-new voice alternative at no cost thanks to its strategic partnership with Warhammer Online. Pro Voice, allows for up to 50 users at once and requires no setup or additional software.
War is everywhere in Warhammer® Online: Age of Reckoning® (WAR), the new fantasy MMORPG from Mythic Entertainment, the creators of Dark Age of Camelot. WAR features next generation Realm vs. Realm gameplay that will immerse you in a world of perpetual conflict for years to come.
WAR players, along with gamers of all types, will benefit from the many new features provided in the Pro Voice solution, including free hosted voice chat servers and crystal clear sound quality for hearing friends and clanmates on the battlefield.
Another new feature included in this solution is ‘Simple Room Navigation,’ which allows users to start a new chat room by simply typing its name. Pro Voice also will allow players to save their favorite chat rooms to a “chat tab” for future easy access.
Pro Voice users have the power to give voice communication to their entire WAR clans by simply creating a chat room once, get everyone in their clan to bookmark it with “Save,” and meet up in the room every time a game begins. Lastly, as the administrator, users will be able to kick, ban, silence and demote other players.
