Call of Duty


 

Call of Duty continues the series modern tradition of shoehorning famous athletes into its games with two Pittsburgh Steelers football players recently revealed as playing parts in this year’s WWII.

According to a Twitter post by running back Le’Veon Bell, he—along with offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva—will play roles in this year’s installment of Call of Duty. An image of Bell and Villanueva fully rendered in the game accompanied the post.

Last year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare saw UFC champion Conor McGregor play a role in the shooter, while the year before that, NFL player Marshawn Lynch made a small cameo in Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Call of Duty: WWII launches November 3rd on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. More of WWII‘s campaign characters were recently detailed in four new trailers, and these ones will likely have slightly more impact on the story.

Nick didn’t start gaming until mid-2006. Once his parents finally allowed a console into the house, it was all uphill from there. Starting out with a PS2, he grew an affinity for Sony consoles and moved on to the PS3, and now the PS4. He keeps his gaming palette wide, but, gun to his head, he’d have to say shooters are his genre of choice. Find him on Twitter @idole808
