James Bachman lends his voice and motion-captured movements and facial expressions to a character in hit new game Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
The fourth game in the stealthy action series takes on a swashbuckling vibe, and features historical pirate legends galore. Amongst its top-notch voice cast are Mark Bonnar (Psychoville), Shaun Dingwall (Doctor Who) and Ralph Ineson (Game Of Thrones), and our very own James Bachman.
James portrays gentlemen pirate Stede Bonnet, and according to lead writer Darby McDevitt, the cast were paramount to the game’s success. He told NowGamer: “We have a huge cast of characters, a really impressive, fantastic British cast. [Bachman is] in our game as a fantastic character. And this is actually the second Assassin’s Creed game with full performance capture. We get all the actors in a room, they play out the scene together and we capture their face and voice at the same time.”
The multi-platform game is available now for Xbox360 and Playstation3, in both standard and deluxe editions, and is scheduled to arrive for Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Wii U and PC on November 22nd, with the first two also getting the deluxe treatment of their predecessors. All formats can be ordered now from The Velvet Onion Amazon Store, via the links handily placed beneath this gameplay video featuring Bachman, just below.
