Today, we’re thrilled to announce that stealth legend, David Hayter, will be joining the cast of Phantom: Covert Ops! Hayter—who you may know as the voice of the iconic Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series—will be taking on the role of Phantom’s lead antagonist General Nikolai Zhurov.

See him in action in the latest trailer:

When asked what he thought of Phantom after playing the game on Oculus Quest, David had this to say:

Phantom: Covert Ops is a ground-breaking next-level VR game and one of the finest stealth games I’ve ever seen or been part of. Without doubt, virtual reality brings a new level of immersion to gaming and to be a part of that was incredibly exciting.”

nDreams’s VP of Development, Tom Gillo, comments, “Having someone of David’s caliber portray one of the main characters in the game speaks volumes about what we’re trying to achieve with Phantom. Oculus headset owners and fans of stealth games like Metal Gear Solid will leap at the chance to take on this villain!”

And we couldn’t agree with the two of them more! Trust us, Zhurov is going to be the most dangerous threat you’ve ever faced in VR when Phantom: Covert Ops comes to Oculus Quest and the Rift Platform on June 25th, 2020.

June 25th is so close that we can almost hit it with our paddle, but there’s still more to come before release day! Make sure you’re following us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube for all the latest Phantom: Covert Ops news.
