Have you ever played a game and walked past a character in the background with the thought, “Wow, they must be so sad and underestimated?” Well, no more!
Announced Today Xbox Game Pass and Free Guy Proudly Introduce The World’s First Xbox Game Pass rewards for non-player characters (NPCs) to celebrate the greatest undetected heroes of video games. This comes ahead of the much-anticipated American theatrical release of Free Boy on August 13, 2021, about a bank teller named Guy (Ryan Reynolds) who realizes he is in an open-world video game that will soon go offline.
All of the NPC Awards nominees are well represented in the games available with Xbox Game Pass (with the exception of the very special NPC) and include:
- Samuel Hayden, Doom (2016) and Doom the Eternal – A senior KLA official who may or may not be completely mechanical at this point. He is always looking.
- Parvati Holcomb, Outer worlds – Everyone’s favorite shy and empathetic mechanic. She is the heart of the ship and crew, and she is the NPC for you.
- Head Merchant Molly, Sea of thieves – Animal lover and Trade Alliance seller, she always has a journey for you!
- Boy, “Free guy” – Guy as Ryan Reynolds is a man of habit. He has the same daily routine and has never done anything so extraordinary. Outgoing and always fun, but a bit naive, Guy works as a cashier at a large city bank and is a fan of mid-90s pop divas.
Fans from all over the world can vote for their favorite NPC by voting on the official Twitter NPC Awards poll. You can only vote once (although we know Guy would like you to vote multiple times) and you will be able to follow the polls in real time as they are submitted.… Fans must submit all votes by August 3, 2021, when Xbox will announce the winner on social media this afternoon.
The epic adventure comedy Free Boy from 20th Century Studios stars Ryan Reynolds, Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Hoveri, Utkarsh Ambudkar and Taika Waititi. For more information ahead of the August 13 American theatrical release, visit https://www.20thcenturystudios.com/movies/free-guy…
