Burke’s first involvement with the Metal Gear series was providing the vocals for the track “Heavens Divide” from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. She later provided the voice for the iDroid in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and sang for the track “Sins of the Father” which appeared on The Phantom Pain’s E3 2013 Red Band trailer.
