Kit Harington is an evil space admiral in the new Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer

New, 15 comments

He's joined by UFC fighter Conor McGregor

Infinite Warfare may be moving the Call of Duty series to space, but some things aren't changing: namely, the series' love of celebrity cameos. In the latest trailer for the game, which focuses on Infinite Warfare's story, we get our first real in-game glimpse of Game of Thrones' Kit Harington as the antagonist Admiral Salen Kotch.

He's also joined — albeit very briefly — by UFC fighter Conor McGregor, who will be taking on the role of Captain Bradley Fillion. He's only in the trailer for a scant few seconds, but manages to get in a good punch nonetheless. Outside of the big names, the trailer offers pretty much what you'd expect from a sci-fi Call of Duty: exploding spaceships, futuristic guns, long shots of square-jawed space marines, machine gun-wielding robots, and lines like "Not this captain, not today" or "This place... isn't yours anymore."

Just for fun, here's what Harington looked like during the motion capture for the role:

We'll be able to find out whether the new setting makes for a good story fairly soon: Infinite Warfare launches on November 4th, alongside a remastered version of 2007's Modern Warfare.
