Destiny 2 players were left stunned after recognizing a familiar voice from their game in Bethesda's new sci-fi RPG, Starfield. Starfield is the latest addition to Bethesda's RPG genre, taking players on an engrossing journey into deep space.

Bethesda's RPG Legacy

Bethesda's RPGs are well-known for their expansive worlds, bristling with quests, non-playable characters (NPCs), and enemies that players must confront as they advance through the narrative. With a plethora of NPCs activating at different levels, Bethesda engages voice actors across the globe to imbue the world with unique persona and vivacity.

The Power of Voice Acting

In some instances, players can deduce the presence of certain talents just by the sound of their iconic voices, regardless of the game they are playing. This is precisely what Destiny 2 players encountered while trying out Starfield.

A Familiar Voice in an Unfamiliar Setting

One such player, R_Da_Bard, while exploring the vast universe of Starfield, stumbled upon a voice that was strikingly familiar. It was none other than the voice actor for The Drifter from Destiny 2, playing the role of Fast Hoang in Starfield. The resemblance was unmistakable, thanks to the iconic delivery of the character's voice lines.

R_Da_Bard initially paused for a few seconds, taken aback by the familiar voice and struggling to process the unexpected crossover. Many members of the Destiny 2 community shared the sentiment that the character's voice didn’t match the new game's character, resulting in a strange combination.

Various commentators remarked on the disconnect, with one commenting, 'The voice doesn’t sound like it’s in the right body.' Another player joined in with, 'That’s so f***ing weird to hear lol, just doesn’t seem to match the face.'

Hope for the Future

Fret not, however, as mod support in Starfield allows players to interchange Fast Hoang's model with a slightly more scheming Hunter which might better suit the famous voice. There's even the possibility to see The Drifter himself stepping into this new universe soon.
