A future plan is to fully integrate the in-game chat system to a widget on the Hacker's Edge website with guest support. This way, as long as your signed into the website, you can easily chat with any in-game players without needing to connect into the game world itself. Potential players who have yet to create an account can also connect into the in-game chat as a guest to chat with players currently playing the game to ask questions and get a feel if this is the game they want to join. The guest chat system will most likely be locked behind a captcha wall to prevent bots and potential abuse from people who aren't signed into the website.
