It is common practice these days to digitally scan an actor for a game. Particularly if this character will end up being on screen a lot with a lot of dialog. Housemarque followed this trend and scanned in Anne Beyer in order to give Selene a distinct look.
Selene doesn’t look like most game protagonists, and this is what makes her unique, but on top of this she has the scanned face of Actor Anne Beyer who has appeared in many short films and TV series.
The likeness is obviously uncanny, but it is interesting to see that even her real life hairdo is used in the final game.
Returnal is out now, so play it this weekend!
