Lynda Carter Joins the Voice Cast of
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

ROCKVILLE, MD. (Aug. 17, 2005) - Bethesda Game Studios announced today that actress Lynda Carter will lend her voice talents to the award-winning videogame, The Elder Scrolls® IV: Oblivion™. Developed for both the Xbox 360™ videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC platforms, Oblivion is one of the year's most highly-anticipated games and sequel to the best-selling role playing game of 2002, Morrowind®.

Already receiving accolades in the games industry, Oblivion was recently voted "RPG of Show" by the Best of E3 Game Critics Awards, and Xbox.com called the game "one of the best-looking games ever seen." Created by Bethesda Softworks, Oblivion will launch this holiday season.

Lynda Carter will join an all-star cast of Hollywood actors to give voice to the Nordic race in Oblivion. Carter is a veteran in The Elder Scrolls series, having previously voiced a character in the highly successful Morrowind, which sold more than 4 million units.

"Working on Morrowind was a wonderful experience," said Carter. "It was my first foray into videogames, and it was great fun to be part of a groundbreaking title that brought millions of gamers to explore the endless world. I am honored to come back and participate in the making of Oblivion which represents another major step forward in the evolution of videogames."

Best known for her starring role as the crime-fighting superhero, "Wonder Woman," in the hit television series, Carter has since appeared in more than 50 films and television shows. This summer, Carter stars in the Disney film, "Sky High" and in "The Dukes of Hazzard" for Warner Bros, both of which have enjoyed box office success and are currently listed in the top five movies based on box office revenues. This fall Carter returns to television drama in "Law and Order" and "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit," with both programs slated for broadcast in September 2005.

"With the many projects Lynda is currently involved in, we are thrilled she was able to find time to join our cast again," said Todd Howard, executive producer for Oblivion. "Our goal with Oblivion is to deliver the most unique and lifelike gaming experience, so adding her talent and personality to some of our characters was a perfect fit."

Oblivion allows gamers to explore a graphically stunning world that helps define the next generation of videogames. To complete the game's mission, the player must trek through mystical forests and dimly lit dungeons, interact with a variety of inhabitants, and use might and magic against foul beasts in order to replace the lost heir to the throne.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
