Football Player Marshawn Lynch Will Appear in Call of Duty: Black Ops III


A man of few words for the media is probably the best way to describe Marshawn Lynch.  The Seattle Seahawks running back who recently is trying to trademark the words, “I’m just here so I don’t get fined” is reportedly a featured character in the new Call of Duty: Black Ops III game.

ESPN covered the news and released some behind the scenes footage showing Lynch in action as Treyarch turns this real life athlete into a soldier.  Motion capture technology has made it possible for gaming developers to create characters based on the likeness of actors and in this case, an athlete.  Check out this video of Lynch going into beast mode.

Lynch has been known to be into video games.  He appeared on Conan back in January on Conan’s Clueless Gamer segment where he, Conan O’Brien and Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots participated in a showdown over the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat X.


Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be set in the future where a new type of soldier has been developed using cybernetics and biotechnology.  Using the Direct Neural Interface (DNI) technology, soldiers become more than just a soldier, but a lethal weapon.  The game will feature a new way of campaign play by allowing gamers to co-op up to four players — this reinventing the multiplayer experience.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is set to be released on November 6th this year.
