Your chance to voice a character in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Are you so excited for the next Dragon Age game you want to shout about it? Try making a YouTube video instead.


Instead of just playing Dragon Age: Inquisition, how about being in it?

BioWare has taken to its blog to announce a competition with a difference: a chance to voice one of the characters in the highly anticipated fantasy role-playing game.

Entry is simple. Chose from one of two sample scripts and then show off your skills on YouTube. All BioWare wants "is for you to perform your preferred script in your lovely, natural speaking voice."

Judging will be based on "the quality of the voice performance and how well it matches the style of Dragon Age." Winners will be flown to the closest BioWare recording studio (Los Angeles, London, or Edmonton, Canada) to have their dulcet tones recorded for prosperity.

Entries opened Tuesday and run until 12:01 a.m. on March 24, with winners announced on April 14. The game is due out in the third quarter of this year.

For fans, this is a fun competition and great chance to peek behinds the scenes at video game production, so get in there and have fun. But make sure you read the contest rules (PDF) regarding the release of any copyright for your entries and do remember: voice talent is usually a paid job for people in the industry.
