Breaking news!

Does it bother you when you're just trying to say something to your friend and all of a sudden you see it go red and you say "Are you kidding me? I can't say statue?!" Well if you're 18+ your worries are over. Looks like all those big players out there finally got their wish. Apparently, KingsIsle is working to release player 18+ chat very soon. It's still unclear whether level 13-17 players can see words like "bed" or "statue", but my guess would be not. That sort of defies to the point of 18+ chat. Anyways, here's the announcement from Greyrose herself.

We are releasing new community enhancements very soon!

One of the enhancements is 18+ Chat*. 18+ Chat will allow players a more open communication environment with other 18+ players. Starting tonight, we are adding web-based account controls for 18+ chat. Please be aware that although the control will be added to your account, 18+ Chat will NOT be launched tonight.

This chat feature is in response to our community’s requests. To ensure the highest level of safety, we have chosen to launch this for our active Subscriber community only. Please note that this option is off by default, and you must actively select this option under Account Management.

Our terms for in-game communication with other players will remain the same. Violent and abusive behavior, as well as the exchange of personal information is still not acceptable.

Once we launch this feature, the following updates to chat will apply:

Menu Chat (default setting for under13)
• players will continue to see only Menu Chat.

13 to 18+ Text Chat (default setting for 13+)
• players will continue to see only our Dictionary Text Chat.
• players will NOT see the 18+ chat.

New 18+ Chat
• will be filtered for profanity.

*Accounts must be 18+ and must be an active subscriber with a valid credit card on file.

Exciting right? X_x
