Bethesda Softworks Announces Award-Winning Actor

Mickey Rourke to Play Lead Role in Rogue Warrior

Oscar-Nominated Actor to Provide Voice Work in Game Based
on the Novels by Richard “Demo Dick” Marcinko

April 27, 2009 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media
company, is pleased to announce that actor Mickey Rourke will voice the
prominent role of the irreverent, battle-tested Richard “Demo Dick” Marcinko,
a real-life Navy SEAL and founder of the elite SEAL Team 6, in Rogue
Warrior(tm).

“Mickey Rourke was our first choice to play Marcinko in Rogue Warrior,” said
Todd Vaughn, Executive Producer of Rogue Warrior. “He absolutely, one-hundred
percent captures Marcinko’s raw and gritty personality.”

Rourke has appeared in numerous well-known films over the years, including
“Rumble Fish”, “Nine ½ Weeks” and “Sin City”. Most recently, Rourke has
enjoyed critical acclaim for his role as Randy “The Ram” Robinson in “The
Wrestler” for which he won a Golden Globe and a Spirit award in the ‘Best
Actor in a Leading Role’ category and earned him an Oscar nomination for Best
Actor.

Rogue Warrior was inspired by Marcinko’s New York Times bestseller of the
same name and his subsequent novels based loosely on his own past military
experiences. Playing as “Demo Dick” Marcinko, you are sent on a clandestine
operation to disrupt a suspected North Korean ballistic missile program.
Soon into the mission, you uncover a conspiracy and must covertly enter the
USSR to destroy a technology that could change the balance of geopolitical
power, leaving a trail of destruction in your wake.

Rogue Warrior is currently under development for the Xbox 360®video game and
entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment
system, and Games for Windows® at Rebellion Studios and is scheduled for
release in Q4 2009.
