Bethesda games have always featured all-star voice casts, which have included Patrick Stewart and Liam Neeson in previous games. Arkane Studios' Dishonored will feature a stellar cast of voice actors including Susan Sarandon, Carrie Fisher, and Chloë Moretz.
Susan Sarandon will make her videogame debut as the former aristocrat, Granny Rags—an intriguing old blind woman now deranged after years of street life. Brad Dourif takes on the role of the inventor Piero, creator of the iconic mask worn by Corvo as well as a wealth of gadgets Corvo can use. Carrie Fisher, best known for her role as Princess Leia, can be heard broadcasting government propaganda over loudspeakers throughout the city of Dunwall, where the game is set.
The cast continues with John Slattery who takes on the role of Admiral Havelock, a Loyalist who helps Corvo on his quest, as well as Michael Madsen who brings his videogame voiceover experience to the role of Daud, a mysterious assassin.
Chloë Moretz portrays Young Lady Emily, the Empress’ daughter who is kidnapped after her mother’s death while Lena Headey joins the cast as Calista, Emily’s caretaker.
Daniel Licht, best known for his work on the TV series Dexter, scores the game.
“Having such talented actors voice Dishonored’s compelling cast of characters adds a rich, powerful element to the game,” said Arkane Studios' Raphaël Colantonio. “We want to draw people into this virtual world and make it feel real. This celebrated cast adds wonderful depth and credibility to the overall Dishonored gameplay experience.”
Dishonored is set for release in North American on October 9, and throughout Europe on October 12 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
