This new behind-the-scenes video offers a window into the process of bringing Ray Winstone from the upcoming Beowulf feature film into the interactive world of the Beowulf video game. This exclusive video interview details the first time Ray Winstone has worked between the mediums of movie and game. We go in to the studio to watch as voice over sessions capture the spirit and drama of Ray Winstone's transformation from leading Hollywood actor in to the legendary hero Beowulf.
"This is the first time I've worked on a video game, and I must say it was one of the hardest working days of my career," confessed Ray Winstone after the intense recording sessions for the Ubisoft production. "But it was vital to capturing the power of the film and translating that into a great gaming experience. Beowulf is a brutal character, a Dark Age-gangster with both hero and monster in him ... as a player, I can identify with the monster slayer.”
The Beowulf video game is an interactive experience that captures the spirit and artistic beauty of the film while offering an even deeper look into the epic tale of Beowulf. The video game features exclusive content that is unexplored by the film and even the classic tale, extending the adventure through 30 years of the Beowulf story. The roles of King Hrothgar, played by Anthony Hopkins, Beowulf, played by Ray Winstone, Wiglaf, played by Brendan Gleeson, and Wulfgar, played by Sebastien Roche, have been greatly expanded and adapted to the interactive realm to deliver amazing performances that can only be found in the game.
