The anticipated Star Citizen game just made one hell of an announcement at their annual convention, CitizenCon.

The game, which is still in development, has added a long list of A-list celebrities and genre veterans to their voice acting cast, including Gary Oldman (Dark Knight, Leon: The Professional), Gillian Anderson (The X-Files, The Fall), Mark Strong (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Sherlock Holmes), Mark Hamill (Star Wars), John Rhys-Davies (Raiders of the Lost Ark), Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), and a few others.

Although most of the Squadron 42 characters the actors will voice are still under wraps, it was confirmed that Oldman will take on Admiral Ernest Bishop.

More details about the game, like a potential release date or update on development, are likely to come out of the weekend-long convention.
