|Overview:||In the broad landscape of multiplayer shooters, 'Destiny' Crucible announcer, Lord Shaxx, provides a striking and unique voice and tone. Shaxx, voiced by Lennie James, serves as a personalized voice in each player's ear, relaying critical game state information while also reacting to player actions and offering relentless support and encouragement to his "favorite Guardian."Join Bungie writer Jonathan To as he details the process that led to Shaxx's creation as Crucible announcer and how the character grew from supporting character to fan favorite through iteration and refinement across multiple releases. Jon will also share some of the techniques learned through this process, how these lessons informed other announcers, and lessons that may be carried into your own projects.|
