    Heavensdub Contest (NA)

    The journey through Heavensward was momentous and epic from the moment our Warriors of Light took their first steps through the gates of Ishgard. We traveled through Light and Darkness to the Far Edge of Fate, accompanied by cutscenes that made us beam with victory, sigh with relief, or even blink back some tears.

    In honor and celebration of the finale of Heavensward as we head towards Stormblood, the Community Team presents our third take on a dub contest. We challenge you to select your favorite cutscene from 3.0 to 3.55 and add your own voice acting to the scene! You may select a scene that has already been voiced, or one without. The choice is yours, adventurer, so choose wisely between either the serious category or comedy category for your submission. The Community Team will be selecting up to three of the top submissions for each category and awarding player with a sweet package of prizes!
