Mike Bithell of Thomas Was Alone fame has announced that Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) will be playing Guy Gisborne in his upcoming videogame, Volume.
Mike made the reveal this evening, onstage at a special 'Gisborne Industries Launch' event in Nottingham. He has been in Nottingham for this year's Gamecity event and, due to the nature of the location and the Robin Hood themes in his game, Nottingham has always been his favourite location to make these announcements.
Serkis will be bringing life to the villainous CEO who runs England in this near future update of the Robin Hood legends. He joins Charlie McDonnell (charlieissocoollike) as Rob Locksley and BAFTA winner Danny Wallace as Alan, his AI companion.
Volume is a stealth game, in which you play as Rob Locksley, a kid who simulates crimes against the rich and powerful and broadcasts them to a corrupted future England. It is the follow up to break out hit Thomas Was Alone, and has been steadily amassing a good amount of positive coverage ahead of its 2015 release.
