Mass Effect: Andromeda is starting to become one of this year's most prominent game. What started out as just a sequel to the critically acclaimed Mass Effect trilogy, has instead become a benchmark for all other games set in this genre. In the past few weeks, BioWare has teased a lot about the game and its features in teaser trailers and videos, but what strikes the most, is that the company just revealed that the game would be featuring characters who are voiced by actors from a well-known and highly anticipated fantasy TV series called "Game of Thrones".
Mass Effect: Andromeda Meets Game of Thrones
According to GameSpot, it was revealed that Natalie Dormer, known for being in Game of Thrones as Margaery Tyrell and Cressida in The Hunger Games will be part of the Tempest crew as Dr. Lexi T'Perro. She will also be joined by fellow Game of Thrones actor Gethin Anthony, who in Game of Thrones played the part of Renly Baratheon, will be voicing the part of Gil.
Although this is already incredible, there is another notable actor who is joining the cast of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Clancy Brown, known for his role in The Shawshank Redemption and more commonly known as the voice of Mr. Krabbs of Spongebob, is also revealed to voice the father of Ryder.
Comments About The Character And Experience
In an article by PC Gamer, it is revealed that T'Perro's role is to provide physical and mental assistance for the entire crew. However, the Creative Director, Mac Walters further explains that her job is to analyze and care for the people around her, while also going through some problems of her own. Walters goes on to say that this unique combination is what makes the character very interesting.
On the other hand, Natalie Dormer said that she had a little moment when she heard Gethin's voice on her headphones, she goes on to say that it's weird to hear Margaery and Renly in different guises.
With all the trailers and sneak peeks that BioWare has released at this point, it's hard to think that Mass Effect: Andromeda would fail to blow players out of their minds when playing the game. However people could still see more details released as Mass Effect: Andromeda is still set to be released on March 21, 2017, on the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
