Vivox Partners with Epic Games

Vivox, a Natick, MA-based company that makes voice communications software for online games and virtual worlds such as Second Life, said today that its technology will be integrated into Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3, the graphics engine behind blockbuster console-game titles such as Gears of War and Bioshock. The partnership will make it easier for developers of multiplayer games based on Unreal Engine to allow players in different locations to talk with each other in real time. Epic is based in Cary, NC.
