Arkane Studios is set to make a big splash this year, with its highly-anticipated sequel, Dishonored 2. The studio has released a cast list for its upcoming game, and it appears to have enlisted the help of actors from today’s most popular shows, including Game of Thrones and Netflix’s Daredevil.
The first Dishonored game certainly wasn’t lacking in talent, and featured performances from Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Susan Sarandon and John Slattery (Mad Men). The sequel, however, ups the star power ante quite a bit.
Erica Luttrell, best known for her voice work in Fallout 4, will assume the leading role as the voice of Emily Kaldwin. In addition, the roles for the expanded cast have also been revealed: Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil) will be playing Luca Abele, Duke of Serkonos; Rosario Dawson (Sin City) will be Meagan Foster, Dreadful Wale Captain; Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) is voicing Paolo, Howler Gang Leader; Jamie Hector (The Wire) will play Liam Byrne, Vice Overseer; Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham) will play The Outsider; Sam Rockwell (Moon) will play Mortimer Ramsey, Dunwall City Watch; and Stephen Russell will voice Corvo Attano, the protagonist from the first game.
While we don’t know much about these characters now, there are some fun bits of information just in their names. Dreadful Wale Captain for instance sounds like the perfect role for Rosario Dawson. It’ll be very exciting to see this talented cast in action for one of the most exciting games of the year.
Dishonored 2 is set to release this November.
