Ross Kemp, famous for exploring and reporting on some of the planet’s most hostile and extreme locations, has taken on a surprising new challenge that may be his toughest yet: addressing the world from a post-apocalyptic Oval office.
Kemp’s latest mission sees him narrating dramatic stories of war submitted by players of the upcoming sequel to the hit Tom Clancy game franchise, The Division 2, which is set in a post-apocalyptic recreation of Washington D.C.
Using his own experiences to deliver the dramatic tales, including the theatre of EastEnders, military action of Ultimate Force and unpredictable tension of the extreme worlds he’s visited as a journalist, including Ukraine, Venezuela, Libya and the West Bank, Ross has narrated a number of real stories submitted by community members across Ubisoft’s UK social channels. For the very first time this is Ross Kemp on Games.
Kemp is bringing to life the combat and dramatic tension of the game’s “Dark Zones”, places where nobody is safe from enemies and teammates alike, and where breaking the rules of is actively encouraged. Each story actually took place in the frozen Dark Zone of the first game in the franchise, or in the expanded threat of The Division 2’s Dark Zones as experienced in the recent Private Beta.
Speaking of his new role, Ross Kemp, said: “I am thrilled to be involved in the Clancy universe bringing the incredible stories of The Division community to life in a world that, for many, has a real sense of tension and jeopardy.”
‘Ross Kemp’s Tales from the Dark Zone’ will be released via Ubisoft UK social channels from today, ahead of the game’s release on March 15th, 2019. The first three films premier today, available now to view via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
Commenting on Kemp’s latest mission, Adam Merrett, Senior PR Manager at Ubisoft, said: “We’re thrilled to have Ross on-board to bring his unique delivery style and dramatic narration to the unpredictable Dark Zones of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. Throughout his career Ross has immersed himself in military conflict, both fictional and factual, so bringing him into the iconic world of Tom Clancy felt like a perfect fit.”
