An Assassin’s Creed Odyssey dev has spoken about the approach behind the game’s voice actors: getting as many Greek actors as possible.
The upcoming game will feature two playable protagonists, Alexios and Kassandra. They are voiced by Michael Antonakos and Melissanthi Mahut, respectively.
In an interview with VGG247, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey audio head honcho Lydia Andrew spoke about casting Greek actors to fill the game’s ranks:
“What we tried to do was look for actors who are Greek or have Greek ancestry. We really felt like it was a nice opportunity for us to have a deep dive into the culture of Greece and obviously Ancient Greece. You can have a great actor who’s great at accents, and that’s fantastic, but you can also find great Greek actors and work with them too.”
Hopefully this will contribute to a vibrant and authentic portrayal of Ancient Greece, where the game takes place.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is due out on October 5 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
