Lucy Lawless To Voice Hunted Character

Xena actress will lend her voice to the villainous Seraphine in Bathesda Softworks’ Hunted: The Demon’s Forge

Xena: Warrior Princess and Battlestar Galactica star Lucy Lawless has joined the voice cast of Bethesda Softworks’ upcoming fantasy action game, Hunted: The Demon’s Forge. She will play Seraphine, an adventurer-turned-temptress.

Hunted is a fresh take on the classic dungeon crawl experience that delivers the intensity and action of a modern-day shooter. It will be available in Europe from 3 June for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Hunted is an incredibly dark, intense game and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work on such a thrilling project,” said Lucy Lawless. “After playing the heroine for so long it’s refreshing to portray such a villainous, seductive temptress!”

Under the influence of the Demon Forge’s ancient and powerful evil, Seraphine appears as a spirit guide that lures Caddoc and E’lara, the game’s protagonists, into a dark and twisted adventure with promises of great wealth and power.

Under development at inXile Entertainment, Hunted has been called “A dungeon crawl for the Gears Age” by Kotaku.com and has been described by Eurogamer as “violent, deceptively thoughtful and witty.”
