Bethesda Softworks announced today that actress Keira Knightley will narrate the thrilling role playing video game, Pirates of the Caribbean. Knightley stars in Disney's upcoming feature film, "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" which opens in theaters nationwide on July 9th. Slated for a June 2003 release for the Xbox and PC, the Pirates of the Caribbean game offers players the most realistic pirating action to date.

"We are thrilled to have Keira Knightley join the project," says Todd Vaughn, executive producer of the Pirates of the Caribbean video game. "Adding her talent and voice to the game greatly enhances this deep, rich gameplay experience."

In addition to her role as the female lead in "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl", being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Keira Knightley can also be seen in the current box office hit, "Bend It Like Beckham" for which she won the Best Newcomer Award from the London Film Critics. Knightley was recently cast as Guinevere in the upcoming Bruckheimer action film, "King Arthur."

"I'm delighted to have the opportunity to work on this exciting project," said Knightley. "The Pirates game will be a wonderful extension of the film and I'm sure the gaming public will enjoy it immensely."

Developed by Akella and Bethesda Softworks, the Pirates of the Caribbean video game is a unique role-playing experience with an intriguing storyline, which gives players the ability to explore everything the world has to offer. Deciding to become a cold-hearted mercenary for hire, a peaceful and profitable merchant or a swashbuckling pirate will influence future interactions. Gaining wealth and experience gives players the opportunity to hire crewmembers, sail larger ships, and uncover priceless treasures.
