Just when you thought you couldn’t get any more excited for Dishonored, Bethesda has pulled out the publisher big-bucks and nailed down an impressive array of vocal talent to lend colour to the grimly beautiful city of Dunwall. Carrie “Princess Leia” Fisher is probably the crown jewel in terms of geek cred, lending her talents to government propaganda broadcasts, but it’s hard to go past Brad “Wormtongue” Dourif as Piero, the inventor of Corvo’s mask. Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon is on board, too; the Thelma & Louise and Cloud Atlas star plays Granny Rags.
Just in case your monocle is still wedged in your eye socket, Mad Men’s John Slattery plays Admiral Havelock; Reservoir Dogs’ Michael Madsen is fellow assassin Daud; and Young Lady Emily is voiced by Chloë Grace Moretz, better known as “the girl from Kick-Ass and Hugo”.
Dishonored arrives on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in October.
