Electronic Arts' upcoming shooter Syndicate might have players hearing familiar voices. The publisher today announced that Hollywood talent Rosario Dawson, Brian Cox, and Michael Wincott are voicing characters in the shooter reboot, due later this month.
Dawson (Sin City, Grindhouse) plays Lily Drawl, a EuroCorp "rising star" in Syndicate. According to EA, Drawl is torn between the directives of her corporate masters and the underground resistance.
Cox (The Bourne Identity, Troy) plays Jack Denham, a "ruthless" EuroCorp director, while Wincott (The Crow) provides the voice for Jules Merit, a senior agent with many victorious operations under his belt.
This is not the first time EA has tapped Hollywood talent for one of its games. November's Need for Speed: The Run featured the voices and likenesses of Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks and Vampire Diaries' Sean Faris.
Syndicate is due for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in North America on February 21, followed by a European release on February 24. It was developed by Starbreeze Studios, the Swedish shop behind 2009's The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena.
