Vivox has signed an agreement with Epic Games to get its voice technology integrated into the Unreal Engine 3 so that licensees will have access to Vivox's middleware, making voice integration with UE3 powered games quick, simple and cost-effective.

Vivox's integrated voice chat technology and managed service are being deployed by some of the industry's leading studios such as CCP Games, NCsoft and Sony Online Entertainment. Through this deal, advanced real-time communication service is now available to publishers and developers as part of the native Unreal Engine toolset for PC and PS3 platforms. In addition, publishers and developers will have full integration support from the Vivox implementation and operations teams.

"Working with top partners like Vivox and integrating their technologies into Unreal Engine 3 further provides our licensees with the best development tools available," said Dr. Michael Capps, president of Epic Games. "Their breadth of features, operational excellence and ability to scale has made Vivox a market leader in voice services for games, and we welcome them to the Integrated Partners Program."

"Epic's Unreal Engine 3 powers many of the best known games on the market. We're pleased to contribute to their commitment to innovation, and we're proud to be part of the high-quality solution they offer," said Rob Seaver, CEO, Vivox.
