Lynda Carter Joins the Voice
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
"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.
