Holy mother of... Marshawn Lynch is going to play a baddie in Call of Duty: Black Opps III
Beastmode - coming to a video console near you.
NFL and first-person-shooter fans are in gory, shoulder-padded, Doritos for dinner nirvana this evening with the announcement of an absolutely stunning cameo appearance.
Marshawn Lynch - offensive star of the Seattle Seahawks and deliverer of monosyllabic interviews - is to star in the next Call of Duty game [Black Ops III] as a nefarious mercenary working out of futuristic Singapore.
This, according to ESPN Magazine, is the glorious gist of the game:
In the year 2065, cybernetic advancements give rise to augmented human soldiers, a new breed of badass charged with preserving our way of life. Their mission leads them to a seedy bar in Singapore, where they encounter an underworld boss and his elite squad of mercenaries. Among them is a 5-foot-11, 215-pound battering ram of a man who's exactly like the world's most ferocious running back circa 2015: the Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch.
It was probably this video, of Lynch playing C.O.D with Conan O'Brien and Rob Gronkowski earlier this year, that sold the gamer boffins on his inclusion in the next installment.
We are booking a week off work whenever this game drops.
