Whether they play on PC, console or a smartphone, every gamer seeks to escape their world and immerse themselves in a different reality — one where they can become part of the storyline, control the narrative, and increase their skills.
Too often we see game developers that focus on graphics and “the visual experience” more than anything else. By excluding some of the key benefits of audio in the valuable gameplay narrative, they may be leaving some gamers short of the ultimate gaming experience.
Unsurprisingly, gamers avoid playing games that have low quality, bland audio experiences. To improve gamer retention, game developers should look into some exciting new options such as machine learning based noise removal for in-game chat and spatial audio to heighten the experience.
How Does Advanced Audio Technology Software Improve Gamer Enjoyment and Retention in Gaming?
Advances in audio technology are playing an increasingly integral role in creating a more enjoyable and engaging game. Audio technologies such as spatial audio and voice clarity help increase gamer satisfaction by improving these crucial areas:
- Increasing gamer performance by delivering a more immersive environment that allows them to hear teammates and enemies all around them with improved distance, elevation, and environmental realism.
- Reduces miscommunication by enhancing the clarity of gamers via AI based noise removal and voice enhancements.
- Improving the overall gaming experience by leveraging in-game real-time movement coordinates mapped to provide more immersive voice chat experiences.
- Noise cancellation reduces in-game frustration by eliminating unwanted distractions.
