Jon Snow may know nothing, but Kit Harington sure seems to be getting the hang of motion capture.
Without a doubt, everyone will know or have heard of Kit Harington for portraying the famously known character of Jon Snow on HBO's original series Game of Thrones. (I mean, who wouldn't know about him? He's great at being the badass Lord Commander of the Night's Watch! Did you see episode 9 of season 6?! Holy sh-- ahem, sorry.)
Aside from getting his long, contract-binding hair ready to start filming the series' seventh season, Harington has been tapped by Activision studios to play the main antagonist in the upcoming installment of their Call of Duty franchise, subtitled "Infinite Warfare."
Thanks to the ever astounding magic of motion capture technology, Harrington will star as Settlement Defense Front (SDF) Leader Admiral Salen Kotch, in the game's main story mode.
Although Infinity Ward were scarce on details about the character, they teased that it was up to the player to take down Kotch and the SDF, all while the villain will "pursue the player throughout the Infinite Warfare narrative," which leads up to the glorious, final boss battle.
As if having Jon Snow along for the Infinite ride (see what I did there?) wasn't enough, director Guy Ritchie (best known for the Robert Downey Jr. starred Sherlock Holmes films) is extending a helping hand to Infinity Ward for the development of the role of Salen Kotch, in hopes of emphasizing "the importance of narrative and authenticity."
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, along with the remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in the Legacy, Digital Deluxe or Legacy Pro bundle, will be released on November 4th, 2016.
