Guild Software let us know that they’ve added new functionality to their space combat MMORPG Vendetta Online:
Although the feature has been in testing for a few weeks, today we’re announcing “production-ready” voice chat support, integrated directly into all four of our game clients: Windows, MacOS X, Linux/32 and Linux/64. We believe this may make us the first MMO to offer integrated voice chat across such a broad base of platforms.
The news page elaborates further:
The feedback from you guys, our userbase, has been tremendous, and the new feature seems to be a popular one. There’s also been quite a lot of attention given to suggestions for new ways in which we can utilize voice chat within the game, such as voice-based “hailing” of other ships, and different ways to augment and improve large-scale battle interaction and command hierarchies. Guild-specific features will probably be next, although we’re kicking around a few possibilities as we continue to learn about this new system.
Vendetta Online has a free trial period, after which there is a monthly subscription fee.
