Explorers Wanted Contest

Posted on

You’re an explorer. You’ve always wondered what it would be like to see the stars and discover new worlds. While we can’t physically send you to space, we can send your voice to Andromeda.

Starting September 12, 2016 at 6 PM GMT, we’re giving you the chance to voice a character in an upcoming Mass Effect videogame.

All you need to do is download a script, upload your vocal take, send the link to explorers@bioware.com, and you’ll be entered. Video and audio recordings are both acceptable. Once you’ve submitted your entry, we encourage you to share it on social media with #ExplorersWanted.



No accents, makeup, costumes, or props are necessary: just a recording of you speaking in your natural voice. If you want to be a little more dramatic, feel free—just remember that your entry will be judged on the quality of your voice performance and how well it matches the Mass Effect style.

The contest entry period closes on September 28, 2016 at 6:59 AM GMT, at which point the entries will be judged by a panel of BioWare employees. The potential winner will be notified on or before November 30, 2016.

The winner will be flown to one of our recording studios, put up in a hotel for up to two nights, and perform in a professional recording session.

Are you ready to explore Andromeda?

Read the full contest rules below for details and eligibility requirements.



Are the scripts intended to be read by a particular gender?

No. Both scripts are gender-neutral and can be read by anyone, regardless of gender.

Do I need to read the lines of the other character in the script? How about the directions? Should I have someone else read the lines of the other character?

No. All you need to read are the lines of Jordan Tate and/or the Tough Mercenary.

Can I include music or sound effects in my recording?

No. We need to hear your voice clearly, so entries with music or sound effects will be rejected.
