'Bendy and the Dark Revival' Features Diverse Voice Actors and YouTube Personalities
Coming to PlayStation and Xbox consoles on March 1, Bendy and the Dark Revival is a horror survival game steeped in mysterious intrigue, starring an animator named Audrey who's dropped into an ink-filled and creepy cartoon studio.
In late Nov, the game was released on PC and received an overwhelmingly positive reception from players via Steam.
Half of its success goes to the horror-stoked action that improves on its predecessor, Bendy and the Ink Machine, while the other goes to the voice acting that ramps up the experience.
In fact, Bendy and the Dark Revival features quite a cast of diverse voice actors from across the video game industry, including YouTube personalities. Here's a list of some of the leading voice actors and specific familiar faces who contributed to the game:
