Ward 13 from Remnant 2 has a lot of well-known faces and sounds.
Remnant: From the Ashes surprised the Soulslike genre with its monsters, backstory, and third-person shooter gameplay. Now, Remnant 2 adds more new characters and bosses to its worlds and has a voice cast that is better than ever. Even small side characters and bosses have names like Ray Chase, Dave Fennoy, Adam Croasdell, and Courtenay Taylor.
Most of the important characters are back from the first game. This includes all the merchants you’ll buy and sell with in Ward 13, which is the center of the world. And then there’s your main character, who has a long list of skills all on his or her own.
Rigler – David Lodge
Rigler, who likes to be called “Rigs,” is one of the first NPCs from Ward 13 to introduce himself and help your injured friend Cass. He is not a main character, but he is one of the first to do so. And he’s still here to get his weapons upgraded, and voice actor David Lodge is still giving him a voice.
Lodge has been credited for almost 400 voice parts in games since the early 2000s. Some of his most famous ones are Rocky Balboa in the VR game Creed: Rise to Glory, Astaroth in Diablo 4, Kabal in Mortal Kombat 2011, and Dereck Simmons in Resident Evil 6. He gives voice to the bad guy Loki in Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue and Jiraiya in Naruto.
Brabus – Jason Anthony
In Remnant 2, it’s always best to have the best tool when fighting the Root, and Brabus is the best place to get weapons. In the first game, you could fight him as a boss. But now he’s just a nice NPC in Ward 13. And Jason Anthony did the voices in both games.
Jason is possibly best known for giving the voice of Operator Otter in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which came out in 2019, and for playing the Sorting Hat and one of the main bad guys in Hogwarts Legacy, Victor Rookwood. But he is also Teclis, the boss of the High Elves in Total War: Warhammer 3, and Julius Nex, a rookie in the TV show Hero Factory.
Bo Ward – Christian Lanz
Bo is one of the first characters you meet in this story. He and his friend Clementine help you fight your way to Ward 13. Where Bo is still in charge of security. Christian Lanz, who did one of the player sounds in the first Remnant, is back to give him a voice.
Even though he voiced Leon S. Kennedy in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Gustavo Orta in Cyberpunk 2077 and has had many voice parts in Call of Duty games, including Sergeant Augustine Perez in WWII, he is best known for his roles in animated TV shows. Lanz played Fishface in Nickelodeon’s TMNT show. In the Disney Channel show Elena of Avalor, he also plays Chancellor Esteban.
Even though Antonio Banderas does the voice of Puss in Boots in the Shrek movies and other movies, Christian Lanz does it in shows like Puss in Boots Shorts and Epic Cat Battles with Puss in Boots.
Ava McCabe – Erica Lindbeck
Brabus is your arms dealer, but Ava McCabe in Ward 13 can help you with some mods for your guns that are more important than you think. And Erica Lindbeck, an experienced voice actress who has probably given life to some of your favorite characters in games and shows, is back to play her again.
In the Marvel universe, she voices Black Cat in Insomniac’s Spider-Man and Captain Marvel in many cartoon projects and games, including the turn-based strategy game Midnight Suns. You might also know her as Kate O’Hara, an available character in Desperados 3, or Alyson Ronan, Tyler’s sister in Tell Me Why. She has also played a shopkeeper named Coco in the game Code Vein.
Wallace – Stephen Oyoung
In Remnant 2, Wallace is no longer a child. Once you reach Ward 13, you can talk to Wallace to choose your job and be able to change it later. In the first game, Yuri Lowenthal voiced the younger version of Wallace. Now, the adult version is voiced by Stephen Oyoung, who played Martin Li (Mister Negative) in Spider-Man, Lowenthal’s enemy.
But Stephen Oyoung has been in another DC character game. In Gotham Knights, he played Jason Todd, also known as the Red Hood. He is also KK, the secondary protagonist in Ghostwire: Tokyo, and Gold Joe, the boss in No More Heroes 3. You might have seen him in episodes of The Last Ship, The Book of Boba Fett, Good Trouble, and For All Mankind, which are not games.
Cass – Bryce Charles
Cass is a new character who appears in the second game. She goes with you to Ward 13 in the beginning of the game and later becomes a trader there. You’ll feel like you know her right away. And actress Bryce Charles, who you may not know as well, does a great job playing her.
Bryce was a guest star on hit sitcoms like Black-ish and Fuller House. He was also in the Netflix shows Atypical and Tales of the City. In addition to voicing Cass in Remnant 2, she was a voice choice for players in the 2022 reboot of Saints Row and did the voice of Dee Dee Holloway in Nickelodeon and Paramount’s Big Nate series.
Andrew Ford, Labyrinth Keeper, Mudtooth – Darin De Paul
Darin De Paul plays Andrew Ford, who started Ward 13, the Labyrinth Keeper, and Mudtooth, a nice merchant NPC. In Doom, he gives the robot Samuel Hayden that same voice. So it should be easy to recognize him as the Keeper. But he can play many different parts in different games, including some Marvel roles.
He is the voice of J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man games made by Insomniac, Ghost Rider in Marvel’s Midnight Suns, and Hulk in the Marvel’s Avengers game made by Square Enix. Outside of Marvel, he also voices Truman Zanotto in Psychonauts 2 and figures like Revenant in Apex Legends and Reinhardt in the Overwatch series.
Clementine – Judy Alice Lee
Clementine, who used to be Subject 2923, saves you from the Root at the start of Remnant 2 and then spends most of her time with the Keeper inside the Labyrinth. Judy Alice Lee has played her again, most recently in Diablo 4 as group member Neyrelle. She also does the voice of the made-up wrestler Meilee “Fanny” Fan in WWE 2K22 and 23.
Judy Alice Lee also does the voices for Yun Jin in Genshin Impact, Kwan Song in Flappy Bird, Operator Kim Tae Young in Vanguard, Seraph in Black Ops 4 and Warzone, and Nimbus in Exoprimal, which is a multiplayer shooter game from Capcom. She will also play Melino in the follow-up to Hades.
Player (Male Voices) – Kane Jungbluth-Murry, Scott Whyte, Andrew Morgado, Greg Chun, Antony Del Rio, And Noshir Dalal
Most games only have one voice for the main character, but not this one. Character creation in Remnant 2 is very thorough. You can choose from six different voices for male and female characters, some of which are big names. And there is no particular order to how they appear in the game.
Kane Jungbluth-Murry is the first one. Black Manta and Black Lightning in “Injustice 2,” “Ibrahim Savane” in “Aliens: Fireteam Elite,” and “Dominic Fulltank” in “Master Detective Archives: Rain Code” are some of his best-known parts. He has also done voice work for the games Saints Row, The Last of Us Part 2, and Resident Evil Village, all of which will come out in 2022.
Next to Kane is Scott Whyte, who played Rathma in Diablo 4, Captain Qwark in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, and the voice of Crash Bandicoot in Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time and Crash Team Rumble. He’s also been in a few episodes of Love, Death + Robots on Netflix, and he has a lot of other voice parts in games like Horizon: Forbidden West, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and the Spider-Man games.
Andrew Morgado also worked on Diablo 4. Where he did the voice of the Male Druid player class and some sounds for creatures. He had small parts in the first Remnant as well, but now he is a player character. And if you like adult cartoons, you may have seen him in Archer on FX and Velma on Max. Morgado is not only a voice actor, but also a sound mixer. He has worked on over 200 projects, including Mr. Robot, Orange Is the New Black, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Player (Female Voices) – Anne Yatco, Mela Lee, Mara Junot, Krizia Bajos, And Cissy Jones
There are also six female voice actors for the player character. But it looks like only five of them have been confirmed. This group is also very skilled. And you’ve probably seen them in many games you’ve played before.
Anne Yatco has been in many animation and live-action TV shows. Like Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir, Rainbow High, Juvenile Justice, and Jujutsu Kaisen. She is also on a science fiction podcast called Solar, and some of her most famous parts in games are Mari from Ghostwire: Tokyo, Rosie Wong in Wasteland 3, Mia in Fire Emblem Heroes, and different voices in Genshin Impact.
Mela Lee also voices Tikki, Froggy, and Risk in Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir and Georgia Bloom in Rainbow High. In the game world, however, she may be best known as the voice of Jade from Mortal Kombat 11 and the character Jade from Apex Legends. And in Code Vein, she can be played by a woman.
Alleria Windrunner from World of Warcraft and Christa from Telltale’s The Walking Dead were two of Mara Junot’s first speaking roles. She has also given her voice to characters in big games like The Outer Worlds, Mortal Kombat 11 as Sindel, Midnight Sun’s Ororo Munroe, called Storm, and Mist from the Valkyrie duo in God of War Ragnarok. She is also the voice of a person from the first Remnant.
