Explorers Wanted, Explorers Found

For the winners of the Explorers Wanted Contest, Cari Scholtens and Kyle Land, their trip to visit a recording studio was also a unique opportunity for them to send their voices to Andromeda.

Winners Kyle (left), Cari (right), and Voice Over Director Caroline (center).

After consideration of more than 16,000 entries, Cari and Kyle secured their golden tickets to our recording studio in Los Angeles. We flew them out to show them how voice recording works, then they stepped inside the booth themselves.

With the guidance of our voiceover director Caroline, they performed admirably, laying down some new voices for Mass Effect: Andromeda. Tom Taylorson and Fryda Wolff, the voices of Scott and Sara Ryder, made an appearance for moral support.

While their trip was short, the experience was memorable and the exciting results are yet to come. Curious to hear what Cari and Kyle’s voices sound like in the game? You’ll have to wait until March 21st.

Here’s Cari and Kyle in the booth:

 

We’re grateful to everyone who submitted an entry to the Explorers Wanted Contest. Thank you for making it a success, and to Cari and Kyle for lending their voices.

A Note About Our New IP

Hi everyone,

As we’re working hard to finish Mass Effect: Andromeda, I wanted to take a minute to talk about our new IP. As our CEO Andrew Wilson mentioned, we’re creating a unique IP that will bring players together in exciting new ways.

There’s much more to say in the coming months, but for now, I wanted to offer this additional background.

In 2012, we began crafting a new universe full of new characters, stories, and gameplay. Our ambition is simple: Draw upon 20+ years of development knowledge and lessons to create something fun and new for you to enjoy with your friends.

There’s nothing quite as exciting as building a new IP from scratch, and it will be even more thrilling for us to share more with you in the future.

Thanks,

Aaryn
