Grammy award winning musician ‘Drake’ is the latest to join the cast for what is expected to be the biggest game of 2011.
“Jace is a central character in the comic books, so he was an obvious choice as a character we wanted to bring into the third game,” said Epic Executive Producer Rod Fergusson. “When we began casting for the role, ‘So Far Gone’ had just released and Drake’s combination of heart and grit was just what we were looking for. Rather than search for somebody who sounded like him, it was clear that we should approach him directly… fortunately he turned out to be a huge fan.”
“When Epic came to me with the role, I couldn’t pass it up,” said Drake. “They’ve created an amazing character in Jace, and I’m looking forward to my tour in Delta Squad.”
We think it is really cool when a recording artist is on the sound track for a game but actually being a character in one of the biggest game franchising takes it to an all new level.
