Submit your voice for a chance to feature in new space RPG If you've ever thought of yourself as a potential video game voice-over star, here's your chance to shine. BioWare today announced a contest for its next big game, space epic Mass Effect: Andromeda. The famed RPG development company is looking for voice-over samples, with the winner being offered a chance to feature in the final game, including a paid trip to the recording studio. Contest entrants can choose from one of two scripts. The first features indie documentarian Jordan Tate who interviews Andromeda's protagonist Ryder. The second is a conversation between two mercenaries, in which the VO comes from a tough guy.

Both auditions are short and sweet. Anyone who wants to enter needs to record their VO and send their sample to BioWare. Full details are in the video above, or on this contest page. The competition is open to "legal residents of Australia, Canada (excluding Quebec), New Zealand, United Kingdom and the United States". Entries must be in by Sept. 28.

"No accents, makeup, costumes, or props are necessary," states the entry details. "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. " Mass Effect: Andromeda is an open-world science fiction adventure, due to be released next year on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
