GAMERANGER ADDS IN-GAME VOICE COMMUNICATION
Perth, Western Australia -- September 25, 2003 -- Scott Kevill, president, GameRanger Technologies, today announced the addition of in-game voice communication to GameRanger, the leading Macintosh multiplayer online gaming service.
The in-game voice communication is available right now for Premium GameRanger members. No complicated setup or external program is required, and it works transparently with most routers without needing confusing port mapping procedures.
Undoubtably the best part of the in-game voice communication is automatic team channels for supported games. You can choose to send your voice just to your team mates, or to everyone. You can even choose the stereo location for voice channels you receive (for example, the All channel on the left, the Team channel on the right). Additionally, you can select the output device that all received voice should come from, allowing you to have voice come from your headset, and game sounds from your speakers.
"In-game voice communication is one of the most requested features for GameRanger and Mac online gaming in general," stated Scott Kevill, "and I'm extremely pleased to present a superior solution for Mac gamers."
GameRanger provides hours of entertainment for interactive game players around the world, supporting online multiplayer gameplay for over 100 game titles, with highlights including Age of Empires II, Dungeon Siege, Ghost Recon, NASCAR Racing 2003, Scrabble, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 and Warrior Kings.
GameRanger is the first and largest internet multiplayer game matchmaking service for the Macintosh. Introduced over three years ago, the GameRanger community is home to over 130,000 registered members playing more than 120 popular game titles spanning classic, action, strategy and simulation. GameRanger 3.0 recently received the prestigious award of Best of Show at Macworld Expo New York 2002. GameRanger Technologies is located in Perth, Australia.
GameRanger is available free from <http://www.GameRanger.com/>. In-game voice communication currently requires Mac OS X.
