Bioware is known for offering players the ability to make choices in their various games. In Dragon Age: Inquisition, the developer will be allowing fans to make a decision that has never been presented to gamers in an Bioware title in the past and that is the ability to decide what their character sounds like within the next entry of the popular fantasy franchise. Dragon Age Creative Director Mike Laidlaw announced on March 28 that gamers will have the option to choose their character’s in-game voice from a preset list inside Dragon Age: Inquisition.
The game will have four selectable voices in all with two options presented for each gender. It is unknown at this time where that means that there will be four possible voice actors or if the same voice talent will simply use different voices. The creative director decided to make the announcement official after rumors were already circulating across the internet.
Word's all over the web, so I'll just say that it's nice to be able to talk about having two voices per gender for your character in DAI.
Laidlaw further detailed that each race will have one of the voices attached to it by default, but players will have the option to change the default setting and give their character any voice that they desire.
Default voice ties to race. You can chose (sic) to alter from default if you like.
The helps solve a problem which many of the fans of the series were worried about because of the fact that Dragon Age: Inquisition will allow gamers to play as various fantasy races. In Dragon Age II, the protagonist could only be human so only once voice per gender was needed. In the series’ first offering, Dragon Age: Origins, players could choose to play as different races but the game’s main character didn’t ever speak and thus had no voice.
Dragon Age: Inquisition releases this fall on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
