Bethesda Studios have officially released the names of those who will be lending their voice to the upcoming horror survival game, “The Evil Within.” The game will feature Academy Award nominee Jackie Earle Haley, “Dexter” star Jennifer Carpenter, and Anson Mount.
In The Evil Within, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners are called in to investigate a gruesome mass murder. After seeing the slaughter of fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead. Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel what’s behind this evil force.
Haley will be voicing Ruvik, the game’s main antagonist while Mount will be voicing his counterpart, Sebastian Castellanos, the lead protagonist. Within the game, players will take control of Sebastian, a veteran police detective, as they struggle to stay alive.
Carpenter will voice Juli Kidman, the junior partner to Sebastian. It was recently announced that there will be a mode released for season pass players that allow them to play as Juli to experience the game from a new perspective.
Shinji Mikami commented on the voice casting saying,
“One of the most crucial elements to any successful survival horror game is the setting and sound, which includes the depth and authenticity of the voice acting. We brought together a great cast of experienced actors to help ensure that players really believe our characters’ emotions and the tension they feel in every scene.”
“The Evil Within” will be available on October 14 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
