Midway Games has enlisted the voice talents of Michael Clarke Duncan (Sin City, The Green Mile) and Rachel Griffiths (Blow, TVs Six Feet Under) for its highly anticipated action-horror sequel, The Suffering: Ties That Bind. The game is scheduled to arrive in September for PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC.
Duncan will influence and antagonize players as the voice of Blackmore, the behind-the-scenes manipulator who seems to be pulling the strings. Meanwhile, Griffiths will lend her voice to Jordan, the woman in charge of a strange paramilitary research outfit that has been conducting cleanup on Carnate Island, the site of the prison in the original Suffering game.
Midway describes The Suffering: Ties That Bind as "a new descent into madness that emphasizes the disturbing terror of its predecessor with all-new twisted creatures and a few familiar faces, melding big action sequences with visceral horror elements." As main character Torque, players will make their way through the gritty streets of Baltimore where he again faces the disturbing demons that seem to have followed him to the mainland. The unique morality system will return, bringing an added dimension to gameplay as players delve into the perverse world of Torque’s sanity to discover his past while struggling to control his future.
