Xbox Game Pass and 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy announced the first-ever Non-Player Character Awards, celebrating the unsung heroes of video games. This comes ahead of the release of the movie Free Guy on August 13, 2021, about a bank teller named Guy (Ryan Reynolds) who realizes he’s in an open world video game that will soon go offline.
Via Xbox Twitter, Ryan Reynolds unveiled the NPC nominees from Xbox Game Pass (and one very special addition) as:
- Samuel Hayden, “Doom (2016)” and “Doom Eternal” – A high ranking UAC official who may or may not be entirely machine at this point. He’s always watching.
- Parvati Holcomb, “The Outer Worlds” – Everyone’s favourite shy and empathetic mechanic. She’s the heart of the ship and the crew, and she’s the NPC for you.
- Chief Trader Mollie, “Sea of Thieves” – Animal lover and vendor for the Merchant Alliance, she always has a voyage for you!
- Guy, Free Guy – Portrayed by Ryan Reynolds, Guy is a creature of habit. He has the same daily routine and has never done anything all that extraordinary. Outgoing and perpetually cheerful, but a tad naïve, Guy is a teller in a big city bank who is a fan of mid-90s pop divas.
From now until August 3, 2021, fans around the world can vote for their favourite NPC in the official Twitter poll linked here, followed by the winner announcement across Xbox social channels.
