I haven’t heard a whole lot about Behaviour Interactive’s upcoming Warhammer 40,000 MMO since its initial announcement, and strangely enough the next bit of news about the game comes from Razer rather than the developer. Razer has announced that Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade will have Razer Comms, the company’s VOIP and Chat software, integrated directly into the game which will allow players to seamlessly talk and type to each other.

Behaviour is the first developer to use the SDK for Razer Comms, and Razer is encouraging other developers to get involved and use the software in their titles. More details are below, and I’m hoping we’ll see more about the game side of Eternal Crusade at E3.

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. We’re pumped to bring the Warhammer fans our world-class communications platform.”

Behaviour Interactive is the first game developer to take advantage of the new SDK for Razer Comms. Available now for Windows and Android devices with an upcoming iOS app in the works, Razer Comms is able to connect gamers and their community from phones, tablets and other mobile devices, even when outside a game. Razer’s SDK is free, easy to integrate, customizable and provides access to the millions of gamers on Razer’s database, making it an ideal VOIP platform solution for game developers.

“At Behaviour Interactive, we want to always bring developers, fans, and even partners into the forefront of the game and its design,” says the company’s Studio Head Miguel Caron. “Razer Comms’ fully integrated yet customizable platform was the perfect fit to suit the chat needs of our players and our devs when testing the game. We’re excited to work with one of the biggest names in gaming to seamlessly connect gamers all over the world.”
