Activision is back and ready to showcase the newest edition to their Call of Duty game series titled Infinite Warfare. Unlike the previous games, Infinite Warfare is set in the distant future.
The game will follow the story of Captain Nick Reyes. Reyes is a Special Combat Air Recon pilot tasked to lead a small crew to defeat an antagonist faction known as Settlement Defense Front, who is set to destroy what was left of the planet. But what makes this upcoming game more interesting is that its stars UFC Champ Conor McGregor and Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington as villains.
In the latest in-game story trailer released by Activision, we finally caught a glimpse of their characters. Conor McGregor will play the role of Captain Bradley Fillion, a member of Settlement Defense Front and defector of the United Nations Space Alliance. Kit Harington, on the other hand, takes the role of Admiral Salen Kotch, the main antagonist of the game and the leader of the Settlement Defense Front.
“I’ve never played a villain before,” says Kit Harington in an interview. “He’s an invading commander; he’s someone who wants to control a whole race of people, and he feels that he’s entitled to do that.”
Kit Harington also mentioned that for him, Salen Kotch is “a madman” and that what makes him an interesting character to play.
Conor McGregor, on the hand, has mentioned that he is a big fan of Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
“It’s an absolute honor to be part of a franchise so big, and to be leading the way for my fellow competitors in the UFC,” McGregor said about his role in the upcoming FPS game during an ESPN interview. “I seem to be leading the way a lot, so I am very happy with that.”
Let’s all take a look at the trailer:
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is set to be released on November 4. The game will be available for Microsoft Windows PC and gaming laptops, XBoxOne, and PlayStation 4.
