Sherlock Holmes and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy actor Mark Strong is lending his voice to Total War: Rome II, publisher Sega announced today.
Strong will play the role of General Silanus, a character who guides players through the opening stages of Rome II.
"If you're trying to find a way to give him gravitas and to make him believable, you've got to make the lines sound like somebody you would follow into battle," Strong said in a new video. "So I've given him kind of a gravelly strength."
Rome II also features a soundtrack performed by the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra conducted by The Dark Knight and I Am Legend veteran Jeff Atmajian.
The game launches September 3. It is the fastest preordered title in the history of the franchise.
