Jessica Chobot as ‘Diana Allers’ in new Mass Effect 3 video
As the official launch of Mass Effect 3 begins to loom large on the horizon, acclaimed developer BioWare is really pulling out all the stops to make sure every angle of marketable opportunity is covered.
Take, for example, the following ‘Cast Reveal’ promotional clip that showcases the vocal stylings of contributing film and television talent such as Martin Sheen (The Illusive Man), Freddie Prinze. Jr (James Vega), Keith David (Admiral Anderson), Tricia Helfer (EDI), and Seth Green (Joker).
However, beyond being just another fist pump ahead of the game’s March release, this latest video is particularly noteworthy for fans of IGN gaming journo Jessica Chobot, who has scored herself a role as Diana Allers in the forthcoming game.
Little is known about Allers and how influential she is to the overall narrative, but it’s unlikely gamers will miss her performance—not least because the character has been crafted directly on Chobot’s physical appearance.
Other voice actors briefly thrust into the limelight during the clip include Ali Hillis, who returns in Mass Effect 3 as Liara T’Soni, and the excellent Jennifer Hale, who provides the (far superior in our ‘opinion’) female version of Commander Shepard.
Published by Electronic Arts (EA), Mass Effect 3 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Games for Windows will be unleashed on March 6 in North America and March 9 in Europe.
