Global Agenda Voice Communication Plans

Hi-Rez Studios announces their upcoming spy-themed MMORPG Global Agenda will include support for voice communication powered by Vivox software, including premium content for subscribers:

ATLANTA, GA, November 10, 2009 Hi-Rez Studios, currently developing the action MMO Global Agenda, announced today that the game includes built-in voice chat and a number of other voice features powered by Vivox. The feature set upon release will include:

     • In-Game Player Voice Chat - push to talk voice chat enables team communication within co-op player-vs-environment missions as well as competitive player-vs-player missions.

     • In-Game News Broadcasts - delivery of voice broadcasts within the game that describe key victories and events associated with Global Agenda's persistent territory control gameplay.

     • Out Of Game Player Voice Chat (Subscriber Only): Subscribers gain the ability to talk with Agency members and other Global Agenda players while playing other games or simply browsing the web. Players can use a variety of access methods including the Vivox Web Voice within the toolbar controls, Vivox Voice on Facebook, or calling into a specified chat channel from their phone.

"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."

Not in the beta but there are plenty of gameplay videos. The quality of the FPS battles is reportedly very good.
