BioWare is having a contest to allow a fan voice a character in the upcoming Mass Effect: Andromeda. The award is an all-expenses-paid trip to one of BioWare’s studios in the United States, where they will perform a professional recording session. The role in the game will be small.
Fans must record themselves reading one of the sample scripts found on this website; email their final recordings to email@example.com. Only legal residents of the US, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand will be permitted to enter. All applications must be turned in before September 28th, 2016 at 6:59 AM Greenwich Mean Time. Applicants will hear back from the company on November 30th.
BioWare has provided two separate scripts. In the first script, the contestant plays the role of Jordan Tate, a “smart and talented indie documentarian.” Tate wants to make a film that gives outsiders an accurate perspective of life on Andromeda.
In the second script, contestants play the role of an unnamed mercenary. The mercenary discusses the quality of life on Andromeda with one of his colleagues.
The company does not encourage the use of physical assistance or accents in the audition, but won’t disqualify a candidate for them. BioWare will not take any of those aspects into account while judging an application. The only thing that will be judged is the quality of a contestant’s acting. The way their regular speaking voice fits in the Mass Effect universe will be taken in account.
Good luck fans! I know some participating in this already!
