4Players Odin

LIGHTNING FAST IMMERSIVE IN-GAME VOICE CHAT FOR UNITY AND UNREAL ENGINE

FEATURES that speak for themselves.

FAST & EASY INTEGRATION

It can’t get easier than this: The integration of ODIN into any existing project is simple and fast – taking just a few hours.

FULLY INTEGRATED

Unlike comparable tools, ODIN is integrated directly into existing game engines, offering a seamless and powerful connection.

HIGHLY RELIABLE & SCALABLE

Our software runs on highly optimized servers and is monitored 24/7 – no matter how many users you have.

LIGHTNING FAST & LOW LATENCY

No lag, no interruptions. Just crystal-clear communication with ultra-low latency.

CROSS PLATFORM

Different platforms. Same code. Same high performance. ODIN knows no boundaries and can be used cross-platform on all major systems.

BUILT-IN PRIVACY & SECURITY

Your users care about privacy – so do we! ODIN does not require personal data and is fully GDPR-compliant.

FULLY ADAPTABLE

Whatever you need, ODIN’s open structure allows true flexibility and is fully customizable.
Your game, your rules.

ZERO BOOKKEEPING & STATELESS

No need to create and manage rooms and users lifecycle. Odin will handle everything for you.

DEEP UNITY INTEGRATION.

Our ODIN SDK is deeply integrated into Unity. Use the tools you know like AudioSource and AudioListener or the built-in Unity AudioMixer for your voice chat integration.

Manage all aspects of ODIN within Unity and integrate it in a couple of hours into your game or XR experience.

NEXT-GENERATION TECHNOLOGY.

Existing voice-chat solutions rely on WebRTC, which is a legacy and very old browser extension. Yes, it’s true, a browser extension with hundreds of dependencies and an awfully bloated API.

ODIN is developed from scratch based on HTTP/3 and QUIC with nearly zero dependencies that allows us to deliver excellent voice quality directly embedded into your game engine.

TRULY IMMERSIVE SPATIAL 3D AUDIO.

While many games are getting more and more immersive, voice-chat often is not as it’s often a separate layer above the game world. Due to its deep engine integration ODIN is part of the game world and is immersive out of the box.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which development platforms are supported and how can I use this?

4Players ODIN is shipped as a set of pre-compiled binaries as well as C-style header files and documentation, which makes it easy to use in any development project on any platform. We also provide packages with ready-to-use examples for Unity (available now) and Unreal (October 2021) Engine.

Which target platforms and architectures are supported?

We ship native dynamic libraries and/or frameworks for Windows, Linux, macOS, Android and iOS. Additionally, full native support for current and next-gen gaming consoles is planned for the end of 2021.

How long does it take to integrate 4Players ODIN?

The actual integration time will vary based on the feature set you want to utilize, but ODIN has been developed with simplicity in mind and integration will be fast. We’ve had some initial feedback from our early bird partners, who had the first implementation running in less than one hour.

How does 4Players ODIN affect the performance of my game?

4Players ODIN is highly optimized, and we made sure, that you can allocate all the resources you need to your game.

What chat types are supported?

While our primary focus is voice and video chat, we’ve designed a very flexible and customizable communication protocol, which allows you to send arbitrary data to other clients in the same room. So implementing a text chat and other use-cases with 4Players ODIN is very easy too.

How can I protect my users against toxicity?

4Players ODIN includes an easy-to-use privilege system, where certain users are allowed to remove others from a room or revoke their permission to speak. Additionally, we’re evaluating options to integrate technologies to help you catch inappropriate content and identify bad actors such as abusers and bullies. We will provide a set of best practice examples to make this as easy as possible to you.

Why should I choose 4Players ODIN over other chat solutions?

We provide an affordable and feature-rich solution for any platform you’ll ever need. Our dedicated development team has years of experience developing communication software for gamers, and we’ll help you tailor exactly the immersive in-game experience that your players want.
