Award-winning actor Patrick Stewart is lending his distinct tones to the narration of My Memory of Us, IMGN.PRO and Juggler Games have announced.

Stewart, who recently announced his return to Star Trek as the legendary Jean-Luc Picard, is no stranger to the world of video games, having appeared in titles such as The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and various X-Men titles.

The news coincides with Juggler Games' announcement that My Memory of Us will launch on October 9 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.

'The story of My Memory of Us is a personal one to us, as our grandparents faced similar oppression World War II. This game is our ode to  them and the millions of others who lived and died during this time,' commented Juggler Games' Mikołaj Pawłowski. 

'So when it came time to cast a  narrator, Patrick Stewart was the perfect choice. His amazing acting career spans nearly six decades, and since the very beginning he has  produced incredible and emotional work. His talent and skill provides the right mixture of gravitas and hope, and his performance resonates perfectly  with our game.'

Stewart's career really needs no introduction, having remained a prolific actor in both film and stage for decades.

In recent years he's also attracted a lot of attention for his budding bromance with X-Men co-star Ian McKellen, and even got into a bit of a barney with James Corden at an awards show in 2010.
