I don’t know how this happened, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now less than a month away. That’s right, it’s almost here. The wait feels interminable, but we’re about to get our hands on it. While some people might be patient and just wait for the game to arrive, I’m keen on every detail I can get about the game, including this video about voice acting.

Charles Dance is jumping into video game voice acting for the first time, and what better role for him than Emhyr var Emreis, the ruthless Emperor of Nilfgaard. He typically plays villains or “assertive bureaucrats” and his most high profile TV/film roles include The Master Vampire in Dracula Untold, Dr Jonathan Clemens in Alien 3 and Alastair Denniston in The Imitation Game. Oh, and he’s also Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones. I don’t care, though, just listen to that voice – it’s gorgeous.

The story between Emhyr van Emreis and Ciri is intense and I’m glad to see it’s one that will be fleshed out in The Witcher 3. These characters are so deep and intense, with voice acting that perfectly suits each personality. I love seeing the details that make this game come to life, and it’s great to see an old-school performer rave about video games and fantasy.

What are you playing until The Witcher 3 comes? Are you already budgeting your time for launch, or is it just another cool looking game that you’ll play when you get the chance?
