Agora and Xiaomi Score Big Hit with New Voice-Powered Mobile FPS Game
SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Agora.io (www.agora.io), the leader in real-time communications solutions, has teamed up with global electronics company Xiaomi to power in-game voice chat functionality for Xiaomi Mi Combat, a mobile first-person shooter (FPS) available in select markets on Android and iOS platforms. Developed by Xishanju and published by Xiaomi, the game incorporates live voice chat to encourage collaborative team communication that enhances the player experience.
Xiaomi Mi Combat was embedded with Agora's real-time voice solution, Agora Mobile Gaming (AMG) SDK, to increase competitiveness and interaction among players. From tactical communications to field commands to friendly banter, players use in-game voice chat to cooperate with each other in real time, creating the type of immersive experiences that gamers have become accustomed to with console and PC games.
The real-time, voice-powered chat experience was seen to dramatically improve player engagement and help Xiaomi Mi Combat become an immediate sensation with players, attracting over a million daily active users during its public beta period already.
"FPS games involving team-based combat require efficient communication and cooperation among teammates, which can hardly be achieved by typing text; that's why we turned to Agora's voice services," said Jiang Changsong, the general producer of Xiaomi Mi Combat.
In evaluating real-time voice services, Jiang said Agora stood out by providing the best sound quality, concurrency, and availability, among other key factors. Most importantly, he said, Agora's live voice service remains stable during high usage and flow surges.
Agora released its AMG SDK earlier this year, which enables game developers to give players more immersive social experiences almost effortlessly. The simple-to-deploy AMG SDK provides real-time communications for a variety of gaming genres, including casual, social, FPS, MMORPG, and MOBA, and is compatible with major game engines, including Unity, Unreal, Cocos, and SpriteKit.
