Dishonored wasn't exactly devoid of acting talent, featuring names like Lena Headey, Susan Sarandon, Chloe Grace Moretz, Carrie Fisher and Michael Madsen, and Dishonored 2 is planning to continue this fine tradition.
In an interview with Game Informer, developer Arkane Studios shared part of the sequel's cast list, revealing actors from both Netflix's Daredevil and Game of Thrones.
Vincent D'Onofrio (Daredevil's Kingpin) plays the Duke of Serkonos, while Rosario Dawson (Daredevil's personal, on-call doctor) takes on the role of the Dreadful Wale Captain. From Game of Thrones, Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell) portrays the Howler Gang Leader.
Even the previously silent protagonist Corvo Attano will be voiced - although disappointingly not by Antonio Banderas - with Stephen Russell, known for Fallout 4's Nick Valentine, stepping into the role. Emily Kaldwin, who is also now a playable protagonist, is also voiced by a Fallout 4 actor, Erica Luttrell.
You'll even hear Sam Rockwell's (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) voice as you skulk about the city, with him lending his vocal talents to the Dunwall City Watch and a character called Mortimer Ramsey. Here's the full cast list and their announced roles:
- Vincent D'Onofrio as Luca Abele, Duke of Serkonos
- Rosario Dawson as Meagan Foster, Dreadful Wale Captain
- Jamie Hector as Liam Byrne, Vice Overseer
- Erica Luttrell as Emily Kaldwin
- Pedro Pascal as Paolo, Howler Gang Leader
- Sam Rockwell as Mortimer Ramsey, Dunwall City Watch
- Stephen Russell as Corvo Attano
- Robin Lord Taylor as The Outsider
Dishonored 2 is due to release on November 11, with the first gameplay footage landing at Bethesda's E3 event in June.
