Arkane Studios has been sitting on a heck of a secret for some time now, but in honor of QuakeCon, they’ve finally announced the incredible voice cast of Dishonored.
Susan Sarandon is making her video game debut in Dishonored, starring as Granny Rags, who Arkane describes as “an intriguing old blind woman now deranged after years of street life.” Brad Dourif, best known as Wormtongue from The Lord of the Rings, voices Piero, the protagonist’s very own Q — an inventor who creates the gadgets and mask used by the player. Star Wars‘ Carrie Fisher will be the voice of government propaganda broadcast throughout the city of Dunwall. Michael Madsen voices a mysterious assassin named Daud, while rising young star Chloe Grace Moretz, of Hugo and Kick-Ass, portrays Young Lady Emily, daughter of the Empress who’s kidnapped after her mother is murdered. The cast is rounded out by Game of Thrones‘ Lena Headey, who voices Emily’s caretaker Calista, and Mad Men‘s John Slattery, as Corvo’s ally Admiral Havelock.
If Corvo is voiced during the game, Arkane hasn’t yet announced the actor portraying him.
Dishonored arrives October 9 in North America and October 12 in Europe for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Find all of ForeverGeek’s coverage of Dishonored here.
