Irrational Games is doing big-time prepping for BioShock Infinite’s much-anticipated release in a little over a week. The developer has revealed an all-star cast of voice actors for the game. Well, not really all-star, but there are a few familiar names up there you might’ve heard of.
Veteran voice talent Troy Baker (Batman: Arkham City, Catherine, God of War: Ascension, Final Fantasy XIII), especially, who voices the main character Booker DeWitt and is set to star as another major character in an upcoming big title – Joel in Naughty Dog’s PS3-exclusive survival horror game, The Last of Us. Big fan of Mr Baker here; he’s actually one of the million reasons I, among several thousand other fans, am psyched for this game.
Moving along, Courtnee Draper as an equally major character as Booker known as the lovely Elizabeth. Draper might be considered an ‘amateur’ among the other voice talents, but she has a truly amazing voice. Did you even hear her sing? Absolutely breathtaking.
Then there’s Jennifer Hale (Mass Effect, God of War: Ascension, Star Wars: The Old Republic) who voices Rosalind Lutece. Oliver Vaquer (Dexter, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, The Warriors) will voice Robert Lutece. These two are the mysterious couple Booker hitches a ride from on a boat. Ultra-nationalist leader of The Founders, Zachary Comstock is voiced by Kiff VandenHeuvel while the opposing faction known as the Vox Populi led by Daisy Fitzroy, voiced by Kimberly D. Brooks. There’s also Keith Szarabajka as Columbia citizen Cornelius Slate and Bill Lobley as Jeremiah Fink, a character we have never heard of before this.
Recently, an explosive new trailer dubbing Booker as the False Shepherd and a commentary video detailing Elizabeth’s revolutionary AI was released. BioShock Infinite is due for release in eleven days on March 26 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
