Syndicate Boasts Big Hollywood Talent

These days, voice acting is tremendously important. And developer Starbreeze understands that.

After delivering a fantastic cast for The Darkness (and Digital Extremes did a damn fine job with the voices in the sequel, too), Starbreeze has tapped some serious - and popular - Hollywood talent for their upcoming Syndicate reboot.

EA has revealed that the game will boast Rosario Dawson, Brian Cox, and Michael Wincott, all of whom you should know or at least recognize. Dawson was in both "Sin City" and "Grindhouse" and she plays Lily Drawl, a EuroCorp "rising star," in the game. Cox ("The Bourne Identity," "Troy") is Jack Denham, the "ruthless EuroCorp director, and Wincott ("The Crow") plays Jules Merit, a senior agent "with many victorious operations under his belt."

When you get real actors, you tend to get better performances. It's just a fact. And with storytelling becoming such a crucial part of interactive entertainment, we need convincing voices, yes? Syndicate is scheduled to arrive for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in North America on February 22; it'll hit Europe three days later. We're looking forward to it.

The more I see of Syndicate, the better it looks. Wasn't on my radar at first, but now it's making more headlines nearing launch and starting to get my attention.

Shame it's banned here in Australia. Looks like I'll be importing again... once it hits $40 or less. :)

That's a toughie, a lot of the time when big names get on board that spells trouble.

As an aside, Brian Cox is from the same town as me. Dundee Scotland! Up the Arabs :-)

Good luck for those that can play this game. Here in Australia I'm not responsible enough to not be corrupted by the game. Damn censorship...

Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
