For the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition later this year, developer BioWare has decided to give the vocally-talented (and the not-so-talented) the opportunity to voice a minor character in the world of Thedas.
From now until 12:01 a.m. on March 24, Dragon Age and BioWare fans will be able to submit a recording of themselves reading one of two scripts for bit parts in Inquisition. Prospective voice actors and actresses will have the option of reading the lines of an unnamed villager or seneschal to demonstrate your vocal talents. A panel of judges from within BioWare will then review submissions and decide the winner.
Keep in mind if you decide to enter that the panel will be judging based on the following criteria: 40% voice quality, 40% performance quality, and 20% vocally fitting with the Dragon Age style.
The winner of this contest will be announced on April 14 and be flown out to a recording studio to contribute their mouth-words to the Inquisition. If this sounds pretty cool or interesting, just record yourself and email it to takeyourplace@BioWare.com.
