Officials from developer Bethesda (The Elder Scrolls franchise) have announced that the upcoming and highly secretive project Fallout 3 will feature the voice talents of internationally recognized actor Liam Neeson (Schindler’s List, Batman Begins). In the upcoming title, Neeson will play the role of the player’s father and will “appear prominently” during the game. According to Fallout 3's executive producer Todd Howard, the role “was written with Liam in mind, and provides the dramatic tone for the entire game.” The signing of such a noted actor for Fallout 3 is not unprecedented for Bethesda. The company's highly acclaimed The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion included voice overs by such accomplished actors as Patrick Stewart, Sean Bean, and Lynda Carter. No other details have been revealed about the game, which is the latest sequel to Interplay's 1997 post-apocalyptic role-playing classic for the PC. It was recently revealed that Bethesda purchased the Fallout series IP outright from former holders Interplay, and while no release date has been announced for the anticipated title, a teaser website has been launched featuring a countdown to a trailer expected to debut in early June. “It’s been a pleasure bringing the father to life and working with the wonderfully talented people at Bethesda on Fallout 3,” said Neeson. “I hope the fans of the franchise and the game will be excited by the results.”
