Bethesda Reveals All-Star Voice Cast for The Elder Scrolls Online
In the imaginary card game in my head, Konami grinned when it laid out Patrick Stewart, Robert Carlyle, and Jason Isaacs, among others, as voice actors in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 this morning. “Not so fast,” Bethesda replied, slapping down John Cleese, Bill Nighy, Kate Beckinsale, Alfred Molina, and, with a final card flourish, Lynda Carter as its voice over cast for The Elder Scrolls Online. That’s right, Bethesda has a Wonder Woman kicker.
Joking aside, both upcoming games feature some seriously impressive voice casts, but Bethesda is playing with a royal flush of talent. Those rumors about The Elder Scrolls Online costing upwards of $200 million don’t sound so outlandish anymore.
Along with Cleese, Nighy, Beckinsale, Molina, and Carter, Bethesda also hired Michael Gambon (Dumbledore), Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), and Peter Stromare (Fargo). Top notch gaming voice over regulars Jennifer Hale, Jim Ward, and Kevin Michael Richardson are also in the mix.
However The Elder Scrolls Online turns out, it should sound amazing. Go behind the scenes and see the actors do their thing in the video below:
