Dishonored 2 ropes in incredible voice acting talent

There are so many small sections of game development that are too frequently overlooked and left to sort themselves out. You often don’t give enough credit to things like sound design, voice acting and more until they’re not there – and games that excel in these departments easily standout. Dishonored 2  – which is coming out at the end of the year – isn’t ignoring this, and has hired a host of incredible actors to bring its characters to life.

Actors from films such as Sin City, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and TV series like Daredevil, Narcos and The Wire. It’s an assortment of talented people that have experience both in videogames and traditional films and series, with many of them being familiar names from recent works. And that’s no surprise – given the stellar cast the original game managed to rope together (including names like Lena Headey and John Slattery).

Dishonored 2 is pulling voices from everywhere, and you can expect to treat your ears to the sweet vocals of some of the actors below:

  • Vincent D’Onofrio (Netflix’s Daredevil, Jurassic World) – Luca Abele, Duke of Serkonos
  • Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Deathproof) – Meagan Foster, Dreadful Wale Captain
  • Pedro Pascal (Game of Throne, Narcos) – Paolo, Howler Gang Leader
  • Sam Rockwell (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, The Green Mile) – Mortimer Ramsey, Dunwall City Watch
  • Jamie Hector (The Wire, Heroes) – Liam Byrne, Vice Overseer
  • Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham, Another Earth) – The Outsider
  • Stephen Russell (Fallout 4, Thief, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim) – Corvo Attano
  • Erica Luttrell (Fallout 4) – Emily Kaldwin

That’s a hell of a cast with a range of experience and talent, which should go a long way to bringing some of the more colourful and dastardly characters of Dunwall to life. As we already know, Dishonored 2 is taking place 15 years after the first game, and features two playable protagonists. The supernaturally gifted assassin Corvo is returning, alongside newcomer Emily Kaldwin – who was just a wee lass in the last game. She’s been dethroned as Empress, and doesn’t seem too happy about it either.

Dishonored 2 is set to be shown at E3 in a few weeks, and will launch later this year on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

    But will Corvo speak? I hated that so much, character you are playing is silent. What?

      I agree, but have him talk in conversations, but not to himself

        That largely depends on the setting and style, for instance, Max Payne couldn’t be any better, but having your story narrated is completely different to having the protag speak, I’m getting freaked out by the silence of my agent, it’s been 125 hrs, and he still hasn’t said a word…

          It is because you have him in shock with your “rambo” tactics

            Hehehe, well, next time I’ll use more tact than a bull in a china shop, it might just help…

            I might need to re balance my gear for my main character, everything is based on damage inflicted, so maybe going the health route or skill route could help a little

            I’ve got mainly damage, also quite a bit of health, and almost no tech.

            Most of the damage I deal, come back as health, also 23% chance to refill mag after a kill, meaning my 50shot Aug can keep firing much longer

            Aaah, ok, that makes sense, I have a very similar setup, lots of damage, fair amount of health and little to no tech…
