You may recognise Peter Serafinowicz from cult TV shows Spaced, Black Books or films like Shaun of the Dead. Known for his deep, full-bodied, dare I say voluptuous, voice, the British Serafinowicz will play the role of the treasure hunter Mild-mannered Pate, an NPC, in the upcoming open-world RPG Dark Souls 2.

Serafinowicz, whose voice’s power can probably be best experienced during these scenes from Black Books, is no stranger to voice-over acting. He’s had voice roles in South Park, American Dad!, Archer as well as the games Lego City Undercover and Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

According to Namco Bandai, the game’s publisher, Serafinowicz loves the Dark Souls series:

“Dark Souls is the most engrossing game I’ve ever played,” the actor said. “For me, it’s the best game of all time”.

Not long after the announcement, an almost nine-minute gameplay video appeared which shows off, besides some tough-as-nails battles with a wraith and knight, Serafinowicz’s role near the end. We’ve added the full video below but if you only want to hear Serafinowicz just skip to 8:17.


Dark Souls 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Dark Souls, known for its incredible difficulty. Dark Souls 2 will be released for Microsoft Windows, PS3, and Xbox 360 in March, with a game world roughly double the size of Dark Souls.
