Bethesda Reveals Elder Scrolls Online's Cast In New Trailer

Bethesda has revealed some of the voice cast for its upcoming game The Elder Scrolls Online. In true Elder Scrolls fashion, it's filled with recognizable talent, including John Cleese, Kate Beckinsale, and more.

The news was accompanied with a 17-minute video, which shows some of the cast members recording their lines and reflecting on their characters. Watch the clip to see John Cleese, Kate Beckinsale, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon, and Malcolm McDowell in action. Lynda Carter isn't in the video, but she's also part of the cast.

The Elder Scrolls Online is due out on PC in April, with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions coming a few months after. For more information on the game, check out our hands-on impressions as well as our Elder Scrolls Online hub.

  • Whoa, that's rad.

  • That's an impressive cast, actually.


  • It's cool and all, but for a genre that lives and dies by gameplay and scope, I can't help but feel the incredible amount of money these actors undoubtedly charge for a V/O session could have been used for more important things, and the difference between having Kate Beckinsale and unknown British lady would be laughably unnoticeable. I imagine unknown British lady would charge about 1/4 of Beckinsale's fee and....for what difference? If you hadn't read this article do you think you'd hear her voice and go "No way that's kate beckinsale!?!" No. There's nothing special about her except she's beautiful and starred in some crappy movies. What a waste of money.
  • Fantastic cast. Hope the dialogue and director is up to par as well so we get fantastic work out of them!

  • If John Cleese and Kate Beckinsale put their talents towards I'm sold :-P also why do you guys/gals keep changing in every article when the PS4 and X1 releases?

  • Well, I really love this cast. Pretty impressive.

  • love Cleese but I turn the dialogue volume down to 0 =\

  • Michael Gambon is actually in the video. He was either the second or third person interviewed in it.

  • I love Malcolm McDowell and John Cleese (I even recognized his voice in the tutorial of the beta, though I couldn't quite place Molag Bol) so at least the game has some really cool voice work.

  • Ummm Michael was in the video.

  • I like how Zenimax is dedicated to having a quality MMO Elder Scrolls game. Sure they could of put the $$ into a less popular or renowned voice actors but I think having those cast is a sure bet that the quality of story telling in TESO will be at it's best it could afford. I'm extremely impressed.

  • Careful of minor spoilers if you've played in the Betas and have some knowledge of the beginning of the story. Some of the dialog they read gives away a few twists that weren't completely expected. Edit: Lol, little mo.
  • KATE BECKINSALE! ? That's my girl, must have for me.... oh wait subscription fee, that is a major drag for me. :(
  • Kate Beckinsale, YUMMY.
  • Hell of an amazing cast. Maybe I'm even swayed more to buying ESO now :)

  • Ha. I knew Cadwell's voice sounded familiar while playing the beta.

  • Weeewww... renowned voice actors. Yawn.
  • Uh, GI, did you actually watch the video? I'm only five minutes in, and Michael Gambon is right there!
  • Yeah uh, Jeff, Michael Gambon is at like the 4:50. Didn't watch the video, did ya >_>
