Sean Bean to narrate indie horror Kholat

Tuesday, 3 February 2015 21:59 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Game of Thrones (temporary) star Sean Bean, best known as “that guy who dies in almost everything he’s in”, has signed on to narrate indie horror game Kholat.


Bean has a bit of history with video games. He voiced Martin Septim in Oblivion, and played Christopher De Silva in the Silent Hill film.

Now, according to Bloody Disgusting, he’ll be narrating Kholat, a horror game based on a true story.

The Dyatlov Pass Incident occurred in February, 1959, and has never been satisfactorily explained. Nine students were killed fleeing from an “unknown compelling force” while camped at the base of Kholat Syakhl, the Mountain of the Death.

The video below goes into more detail on the topic. Kholat is coming to PC on April 24 via indie team IMGN.PRO.

Also, because I can, here’s a video of 21 of Bean’s deaths. There are spoilers and violence below, obviously.
