Nexon and Vivox have teamed up to bring voice chat to the cross-platform multiplayer racing game KartRider: Drift. The deal gives Nexon access to Vivox's full set of communication tech -- including 3D positional chat, cross-platform communications, and Nintendo Switch compatibility. This is the same technology that is used in games like Fortnite and League of Legends.

According to the press release, Nexon will be using Vivox's tech for its catalog of games. Which games will benefit from the partnership other than KartRider: Drift have not been mentioned. That said, it makes sense that KartRider will benefit first since it has yet to launch. Previously existing games will need a bit of reworking to implement them.
