See Kit Harington Preparing for a Villainous Role in New ‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ Game
Game of Thrones star Kit Harington will appear as the villain in the upcoming Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the newest title in the video game franchise from Activision, and we’ve got some cool behind-the-scenes photos showing how it’s done.
As a player in Infinite Warfare, you are a Captain of your own warship, fighting against a relentless enemy, the Settlement Defense Front. The SDF is led by Admiral Salen Kotch, played by Harington, who is brought to life via state-of-the-art performance capture (PCAP) technology, and he’s going to doggedly pursue you throughout the Infinite Warfare narrative, eventually leading to a dramatic confrontation.
The Infinity Ward narrative team and director Guy Ritchie worked with Harington in London over the course of about a week, shooting on cutting-edge performance capture sound stages and utilizing next-gen technology to bring Kotch to life. The game is due for release November 4, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Of course, Harington will forever be our stalwart Jon Snow, and after winning the big battle for Winterfell in last week’s episode of GoT, we’ll see how things shake out in the Season 6 finale this Sunday. Check back for our recap!
