|Turbine have announced that Dungeons and Dragons Online will feature integrated voice chat.|
We've all been there. You're in an epic battle, spells flying left and right, swords clashing, and monsters roaring. In the chaos of battle you suddenly realize your hit points are low and start to type, "I need a heal!" Just as you are about to hit enter... you die. Argh! If only we could all type at 100 words-per-minute! Well, now you don't have to.
Dungeons & Dragons™ Online: Stormreach™ will be the first massively multiplayer online role-playing game to offer integrated voice chat. Unlike previous MMOGs, voice chat in Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach will not require players to use their own system resources and bandwidth to host a chat server or run third party chat programs while they play the game. Everything is fully integrated and customizable right in the game client! Voice chat only works between players in the same party so you don't have to worry about hearing too many conversations at once.
