Vivox entered into an agreement with Electronic Arts to provide voice communication services for several online games and the EA community.

The first EA game that will feature integrated Vivox voice services is Command & Conquer 4 Tiberian Twilight, being developed by EA Los Angeles.

Command & Conquer 4 is a huge leap forward for RTS games,” said Rob Seaver, CEO of Vivox. “EA recognizes the impact that voice will bring to Command & Conquer 4, both tactically and socially, and it is a terrific title to kick-off our relationship. With voice, players will experience and create new levels of gameplay for themselves, making the connections they need to move ahead and win the game. It is amazing to work with EA to craft a new experience for the RTS genre, and we expect to keep innovating with future EA titles.”
 
“Online games are fast-paced social experiences where voice chat is an essential element of user interaction,” said Nanea Reeves, senior vice president of EA’s online group. “With Vivox, we are providing our players an incredibly rich communications experience that combines the fun of an old time LAN party in the new age of online games.”
