Bethesda have announced that they signed an agreement with “the Wrestler” Mickey Rourke to voice the main character of the upcoming Rogue Warrior FPS, Richard “Demo Dick” Marcinko. And it must really be a nice combination, since it’s the first video game starring Mickey Rourke and the first FPS from Bethesda since… well… Terminator Future Shock?
In Rogue Warrior, playing as Richard Marcinko, you go behind the iron curtain to disrupt a suspected North Korean ballistic missile program. Soon into the mission, you uncover a conspiracy that could turn the tides of the Cold War in the communists’ favor. You must then take the mission into your own hands as you enter into the bowels of the USSR to destroy a technology that could change the balance of geopolitical power, leaving a trail of destruction in your wake!
“Mickey Rourke was our first choice to play Marcinko in Rogue Warrior,” said Todd Vaughn, Executive Producer of Rogue Warrior. “He absolutely, one-hundred percent captures Marcinko’s raw and gritty personality.”
Rogue Warrior is scheduled to be released in the fourth quarter of the year, for PS3, Xbox 360 and PCs.
