Starcraft 2 TotalBiscuit Announcer Voice-Pack Coming Soon!
Starcraft 2’s announcer voice packs are a great way for players to customise their Starcraft experience, featuring altered voice lines generally themed for a specific character (even Overwatch’s Dv.a!). In a first of it’s kind, the infamous Starcraft and Youtube personality John “TotalBiscuit” Bain has brought into the recording booth to bring his dulcet British tones to the sci-fi strategy game.
As TotalBiscuit shows in his video, each action has multiple voice lines, ranging from the sensible “you need more minerals” to the more overt “your out of supplies mate!”. While TotalBiscuit has only done light voice-work before on games such as Awesomenauts as the hero “Spike and Vinny”, his name has been well known in the Blizzard community for years, having professionally covered several official Starcraft tournaments, as well as the Blizzcon championships!
While TB only suggested the idea to Blizzard as a lighthearted shot in the dark, he was taken up on that offer, being summoned to Blizzard’s Anaheim HQ to get to work creating the announcer voice-pack. After being allowed to write his own script, TotalBiscuit created an amazing set of auditory warnings, each one full of his trademark character. As a long time game-reviewer, he acknowledged that a problem that announcer pack’s can face is repetitiveness, as they can become boring and even annoying as more and more events stack on-top of eachother. As a result, it contains twice as many voice-lines as the longest voice-pack in all of Starcraft 2.
TotalBiscuit’s voice-pack can be purchased from the official Blizzard store, for either the paid version of Starcraft, or it’s free counterpart. Costing $7.50 , this voice-pack is sure to make destroying your enemies 10000% more British, which as we all know, is the appropriate amount of Britishness.
