ArtCraft's latest Crowfall blog is all about chatting it up. The post announces a partnership with third-party chat system developer, Vivox, and what it brings to the game. According to the blog, "it brings the scalability and features we're looking for along with seamless integration".
Players will find a number of channels as with most MMOs. These include a General and Zone channel, the "Me" channel that is chat directed specifically at the player, and, finally, the Group channel. Players will be able to create new tabs and channels that are custom to each player. Over time, of course, there will be more options added.
The blog goes into some detail about how specific channels can be set up and customized, along with how easy it is to do so.
