See, Star Citizen has announced they’re introducing a new feature called FoIP, Face and Voice-Over IP: and it’s way crazier than the name implies. It means that if you let the game access your webcamera and microphone, you can both voice your character in-game, and use your own face to adjust your character’s expression – IE, if you frown, your character will frown too. And that sounds like it can go terribly wrong, which is why I’m so hyped about it.
But here’s how they describe it:
"[FoIP] allows players to connect their webcams and control their in-game character’s facial expressions with their own, creating a new level of immersion never before seen in video games. Face and Voice over IP are available to all players in the Star Citizen Persistent Universe."
Immersion, maybe, or maybe it’ll mean your character is stuck with an impossibly bored face while fighting for his life, or he’ll start chewing and swallowing air when you decide to eat some popcorn during some cinematics.
Oh, and the expansion adds new ships and features and a new trailer for the single-player mode but I really don’t care about that. If you do, though, you can check out this website.
Anyway. I’m hoping this tech gets added to more games. If I could make Junkrat look perpetually horny I would literally never stop playing Overwatch.
