Lucy Lawless voicing Hunted: The Demon's Forge

Xena, Battlestar Galactica actress lending pipes to Bethesda's upcoming fantasy action game as Seraphine, an adventurer-turned-temptress.

Hunted: The Demon's Forge is an entirely new intellectual property from Bethesda, but gamers who play the fantasy action game will hear a familiar voice. The publisher has announced that Lucy Lawless of Xena: Princess Warrior and Battlestar Galactica fame will voice a character in Hunted: The Demon's Forge.

The Demon's Forge just scored a warrior princess.

Lawless will lend her vocal pipes to the game to play Seraphine, an "adventurer-turned temptress" character. She will appear in the game as a ghost, possessed by the Demon's Forge's "ancient and powerful evil" and will attempt to lure Caddoc and E'lara, the game's protagonists, to perform malevolent tasks.

In Hunted: The Demon's Forge, players will take on the role of either the master swordsman Caddoc or the ranged-weapon expert E'lara as they work together to figure out what's behind a rash of disappearing townsfolk. Gameplay will focus on cover-based combat and puzzle-solving, coupled with exploration of dungeons, ruins, and urban areas.

Hunted is in development at inXile Entertainment, best known for the Line Rider franchise of physics-based puzzle games, as well as its 2004 PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC revamp of the Bard's Tale role-playing game franchise.

Hunted: The Demon's Forge is due out on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on June 1. For more on the project, check out GameSpot's most recent hands-on preview with Hunted: The Demon's Forge.

I LOVE Lucy F-Lawless... I wish they'd do a Xena game on the 360... the one on PSx was fun for it's time, but with the graphics nowadays. that'd be slick. It could be the XBox's answer to GOW....

She also starred in season 1 and 1.5 of Sparticus, an incredibly brutal series on Starz.

@Alex_09 If you only gave it 3 episodes then you didn't give it a proper chance. Obviously the early episodes are going to be plagiarized; Gladiator was based off the original Spartacus film from 1960 with Kirk Douglas. The 2010 Spartacus is an adaptation of the original Greek myth, (like the 1960 Spartacus, hence Gladiator,) shot in the style of the film version of Frank Millers 300. Put this show on a paid network like Starz, add gratuitous sex and violence, it's magic!

When referring to Lucy Lawless in the future, make sure to include "Spartacus" as her top works along with Xena. Hell Spartacus > Xena

@Skullcandy Really? Comparing an incredible movie like Gladiator with Spartacus? Imagine 300 had sex with a Uwe Bowl movie, and you're right on the money. I never returned a gift in my life, until I received Spartacus for Christmas. The dialogue is so terrible and plagiarized it was hard to endure three episodes, and they actually shot the entire show in front of a green screen, in New Zealand of all places.

Looks kinda iffy, if it plays like Darksiders I'll probably give in and buy it.

I didn't realize it was Lucy Lawless in the Spartacus series until I finished the first season. I'm happy to see that she realizes where her fan base lies and is willing to contribute to the genre. For those who haven't seen Spartacus, imagine that Gladiator had sex with 300, and Spartacus is the porno that was filmed during the act. It's bloody beautiful.
