RAZER CONNECTS GAMERS WORLDWIDE WITH RAZER COMMS

Razer Community Feedback Pushes Free-to-Download VoIP & Chat Software Razer Comms to Open Beta

Immediate Release:

CARLSBAD, Calif. – April 22 2013 – Razer™, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, software and systems, announced the open beta release of Razer Comms, an all-in-one communications solution for gamers.

Applying feedback gleaned from a community-based closed beta program, Razer Comms now combines VoIP client, instant messaging and IRC-chat features, allowing gamers the world over to connect with one service, free of charge. It also features an in-game overlay and seamlessly integrates with PC games, providing for uninterrupted gameplay while at the same time typing or talking with friends.

Razer Comms uses complex audio algorithms and an ultra-fast server infrastructure to deliver precise, crisp and clear communication with no timeouts or lag spikes, and it features advanced noise reduction and echo cancelation, a boon to millions of PC gamers worldwide.

Razer Comms originated as an internal project built on the spare “10 percent passion time” of a couple of engineers. After receiving many fan requests to make it widely available, Razer Comms has now become a fully supported project with a designated team working on it.

“As a gamer, it gets pretty annoying switching between multiple clients all the time when playing and talking with your friends,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. “Razer Comms offers a way around that challenge. By connecting gamers globally through a versatile software solution without any additional costs for the user, Razer Comms is a way for us to give back to our passionate fan base.”

Razer encourages every user to continue submitting feedback to help determine the most sought after features and improve Razer Comms further. For more information on Razer’s latest free-to-download software, including how to submit ideas, go to www.razerzone.com/comms.
