Even though we've yet to see any gameplay from the highly anticipated sequel to Arkane Studios' 2013 masterpiece, we now have a release date for Dishonored 2.
This holiday, you’ll take back what’s rightfully yours. Dishonored 2, the sequel to Arkane Studios’ critically acclaimed first-person action game, will release worldwide on November 11 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. - Bethesda
Can't wait. But aside from this announcement, it's also been revealed that Game Informer’s exclusive cover story, available on Saturday, May 7, with the digital edition available today, features tons of information about the upcoming sequel! One of the things we've learned is the ridiculous cast of voice talents that Arkane have recruited for Dishonored 2.
Bask In The Glory of Dishonored 2's Celebrity Voice Cast
A famed voice actor, Stephen Russell has brought to life various characters in gaming's history, from Garrett in Thief, Nick Valentine and Codsworth in Fallout 4 and Prince Clavicus Vile and Mercer Frey in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. He'll be playing Corvo Attano, the lead character from the first Dishonored. Seems he has a voice now!
Erica Luttrell is an accomplished actress and voice actress. She's been involved in Diablo III, World of Warcraft, Dragon Age: Origins, she's the voice of Sapphire in Steven Universe and plays Darla, Fahrenheit and Kendra in Fallout 4. She'll be the voice of the alternative protagonist of Dishonored 2, Emily Kaldwin.
Emily was 10 years old when she was kidnapped at the beginning of Dishonored, and she was voiced in that game by Chloë Grace Moretz. The sequel takes place about 15 years later.
Probably most famous for his work as Marlo Stanfield in the incredible TV series, The Wire, Jamie has also appeared in Halo: Reach, Max Payne and much more. He'll be playing Liam Byrne, the Vice Overseer in Dishonored 2.
You're more than likely familiar with the glorious talents of Rosario Dawson. Whether it be her performances in Death Proof, Daredevil, Sin City, Trance or even the Ratchet and Clank video game, Dawson has made a name for herself in realm of popular culture. She'll be playing Meagan Foster, the Dreadful Wale captain in Dishonored 2 and we look forward to seeing her character in action.
You all know this face. Famed for his roles in Daredevil (Wilson Fisk), Law & Order: Criminal Intent (Det. Robert Goren), Full Metal Jacket (Pvt. Pyle) and Men In Black (Edgar), Vincent D'Onofrio will be joining the cast of Dishonored 2 as Luca Abele, Duke of Serkonos.
Robin Lord Taylor
Gotham's very own Oswald Cobblepot will be playing the role of The Outsider in Dishonored 2 and we're wondering whether Robin Lord Taylor's character will be as creepy and unnerving as he is in Gotham. Are you excited to hear his voice?!
Undoubtedly one of my favorite characters in the history of the Game of Thrones TV series, Pedro Pascal is a well-established actor that'll be taking on the role of Paolo, the Howler Gang Leader in Dishonored 2. Honestly, I hope he sounds as dreamy as he looks in the picture above.
Do I need to remind you of Sam Rockwell's awesomeness? You've seen Moon right? Please see Moon. Sam will be taking on the role of Mortimer Ramsey of the Dunwall City Watch. We look forward to his whimsy.
When Can We See Gameplay?!
The world premiere of Dishonored 2 gameplay will take place during Bethesda’s 2016 E3 Showcase being held in Los Angeles, California, on June 12 beginning at 7pm PST, and streamed live around the world via Twitch and YouTube. Just a little over a month, people. Can't wait.
