When it comes to voices, it helps to be versatile, which is how one sci-fi actor is breaking into gaming fantasy. Upcoming game The Tale Of Bistun just added notable member Shohreh Aghdashloo to its cast, familiar from the well-known series Mass Effect. The new game appears to be an adventure of epic proportions showing lots of action, exploration, and lore. With a new story and world to take in, the more talented folks you have to lend their acting and narrative talents to the project, the bigger chance players will have of getting immersed in everything that it has to offer.
From Mass Effect To The Tale Of Bistun
Though the first game was released in 2007, the Mass Effect series really took off with Mass Effect 2 in 2010. It was here that players got to meet Admiral Shala’Raan vas Tonbay, a significant character played by Shohreh Aghdashloo. This award-winning actor created a truly memorable leader with character and presence. Now, she’ll be bringing this same power to The Tale Of Bistun. The launch trailer places her at center stage as she provides a heavy narration for the story unfolding. Though it’s unclear if she serves as an omniscient narrator or in-game character, her role feels significant.
Many fantasy games are about lone heroes on grand journeys with The Tale Of Bistun being another one. It follows the story of a warrior traveling through mystical realms as they fight what appear to be divine beings. It’s a third-person experience that revolves around exploration, combat, and puzzle solving. The warrior will need to collect weapons and seek certain arcane structures in order to upgrade their power. As Shohreh Aghdashloo puts it, “this is a tale of determination.” Players will need to have plenty in store if they plan to see this quest through to the end.
The Tale Of Bistun is fortunate to have the support of a masterful actor like Shohreh Aghdashloo and is clearly putting her skills to good use. The launch trailer comes at the perfect time to prepare for the game’s release on July 13th.
