'MechWarrior Online' Integrates Vivox Voice Chat

Set in the year 3049 during the early stages of a massive interstellar war, MechWarrior Online puts you in command of the most powerful war machine to ever walk the field of battle, the mighty BattleMech.

MechWarrior Online lets players command at will: go head-to-head online alone or with friends in high-octane Conquest and VS modes. Band together and form your own Mercenary Corp, invite friends and battle other player-made Merc Corps for prestige and power.  Pledge your allegiance to one of the five great houses and fight for control of precious Inner Sphere planets.

You will play a key role in a dynamic and ever-changing universe where player exploits impact the world around you and daily story updates and frequent content additions create epic changes to the Inner Sphere universe and its many inhabitants.

MechWarrior Online delivers a rich online experience, rewarding everything a player does with experience points, C-Bills, unlocks, and recognition. Upgrade skills and refine  your role in gameplay using an all-new leveling system, and up-to-the minute detailed player statistics allow you to compare, track and share your progress with other players.

Revolutionary war campaigns begin with communication, and now the troops of game players invading the MechWarror Online landscape will be able to plan strategies with each other through voice conversations in the midst of the high-action gameplay or outside of the game.

Through the integration of Vivox C3 solution, the entire MechWarror Online community will have the ability to communicate, plot operations and create a more unified front for future attacks on opponents. In building MechWarror Online, the Piranha development team sought a scalable platform to accommodate an expanding user base, while building loyalty among players through multiplayer and team unit premium voice capabilities.

“Vivox’s C3 platform provides us with a solution we can grow into,” said Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games. “MechWarror Online is more than just the experience of being in the game and participating in battles; it’s about building the community and taking the time to develop alliances, building factions and getting to know fellow players. With C3, our community has the ability to achieve these goals effectively for an enhanced and enjoyable gaming experience.”

The inclusion of in- and out-of-game natural voice capabilities for MechWarror Online will offer an unparalleled communications experience for team play, with a flexible, stand-alone voice client so the community won’t have to look elsewhere for a solution. Through its direct-messaging capabilities, C3 will allow Piranha the opportunity to stay connected with the MechWarror Online gaming community whether they are interacting with the game or not.

“With the integration of Vivox C3 into MechWarror Online, gamers will have a seamless voice experience from within their teams, while alleviating them from the need to find an outside add-on to complicate the process,” said Rob Seaver, Vivox CSO. “Vivox aims to provide high-quality solutions for game publishers like Piranha to build more cohesive and scalable communities with the ability to brand the technology and reach their players both in and outside the game.”
