Bioware previously confirmed that players will be able to pick between two options per gender for the voice of the main character in Dragon Age: Inquisition. While all races will share these same four voices, fans will be able to select one of the two available options for their gender. Further detailing the voice options on April 3, Dragon Age Creative Director Mike Laidlaw revealed that the two gender-based voices will have different accents.
For the first time ever in a Dragon Age game, players will be able to choose what their character sounds like. Laidlaw confirmed the accent selection choices by giving the following statement on Thursday.
English VoiceOver will support a British and American accent for the main character.
In Dragon Age II, gamers were unable to choose their characters race and were given one default voice. Dragon Age: Origins, however allowed players to choose their in-game race from standard fantasy races but their character never spoke so the protagonist simply had no voice.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is scheduled to release this fall on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox One, and PS3.
