Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade First Game to Use Razer Comms’ Newly Unveiled SDK
CARLSBAD, Calif. – Behaviour Interactive and Razer™, the world leader in entertainment devices and software, today announced a partnership for the upcoming MMO title Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade. Razer will be providing Razer Comms, its VOIP and Chat software, to Behaviour Interactive for integrated use in the game.
Razer Comms will be providing voice, chat and friend management in-game for Eternal Crusade, allowing players to seamlessly talk and type to one another.
“We are excited to work with Behaviour Interactive to give a dedicated community of fans a truly social gaming experience,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. “Razer Comms is one of the fastest growing chat clients in the world.
