The voice cast of Elder Scrolls Online

TESO_Celebs1“This extraordinary group of actors helps bring the distinctive characters in The Elder Scrolls Online to life,” said Matt Firor (Dark Age of Camelot), game director of The Elder Scrolls Online.

If you managed to play one of the Beta sessions for the upcoming The Elder Scrolls Online, you would have run into its fully voiced NPC cast and wondered, “Wow, that voice sounds very familiar. Are they really in this MMO?” And being one of the many gamers who adore the life that voice actors convey through their characters, you will have an idea of who those voices are. Whether you’ve kept track of the handful of actors being heard through the Elder Scrolls franchise, or key actors in animations and games, you’ll enjoy seeing some of the talent listed below.

The following cast listed here is organized based on faction association through the MMO. Whether these allegiances change is undetermined at this time, as these are impressions found through the initial Beta sessions and notes found on the Bethesda website.

The Elder Scrolls Online is this year’s most anticipated MMO for 2014, changing gears for the franchise with its multiplayer online play after decades of award-winning single-player games. Whether it’s Morrowind, Oblivion, or Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls franchise has sold millions upon millions of copies. Even though there is much skepticism and disagreement with its current Pay-to-Play model, it still possesses the support of a fanbase who is either dedicated to the rich universe of The Elder Scrolls or have been impressed with the “Dark Age of Camelot”-style PvP.

The Elder Scrolls Online officially launches for PC/Mac on April 4th and June 2014 for the PlayStation 4 system and Xbox One. The studio for this MMO is headed by industry veteran Matt Firor, one of the key figures in the classic MMO “Dark Age of Camelot“, an MMO which has been remembered fondly for its 3-faction PvP system.
