Sean Bean on voice acting for Civilization VI

In Civilization VI, Sean Bean lives forever. The Hollywood star lends his voice all throughout the game, from inspirational spiels at loading screens to quoting Mark Twain and Monty Python in the technology tree. There’s just something soothing about having King Regis (Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV) and Lord Eddard Stark (Game of Thrones) peering from the heavens at your own little empire.

The latest behind-the-scenes video features a short one-on-one with Sean Bean himself. It isn’t going to be as insightful as a discussion panel, but it does get into his thoughts on working with games. Oh, and how he feels about his character dying – again.

Since there isn’t any behind-the-scenes featurette accompanying Civilization VI, it’s nice to see Firaxis and 2K releasing more of such content, regardless of how bite-sized they may be. This is the first new video since the game’s launch and, hopefully, there are more waiting in their hard drives.

Here are the past interviews:

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI recently won the Best Strategy Game category at The Game Awards 2016. It has already undergone a massive patch – titled the “Fall 2016 Update” – which adds DirectX 12 support, new maps, a new scenario, and a long list of tweaks and fixes.
