I forget exactly where in the stream but they confirmed voice chat was going to be built into the game. This is awesome as I played a lot of EQ2 and they had an in game voice built in. It was so nice to just form a group and be instantly talking.
I've played many games where you had to use a 3rd party voice chat program and you had to install the program if you didn't have it , you had to get the room/channel address, possibly a password too. You'd always get people that didn't know how to download or use the program, then you'd be teaching people how to use it instead of playing the game and this seemed to happened a lot.
In EQ2 you just formed a group and bam! You were talking instantly and it was easy to toggle back and forth from group chat to guild chat. Groups were communicating instantly and mobs were going down quicker.
Very happy to hear the team say in game voice is in
What do you guys think about the in game voice feature?
