With four days to go until its release, the latest (and probably last) trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III has just been released, and features Michael B. Jordan narrating, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch sinking lead into enemies, and Cara Delevingne dropping in at the very end and shooting the place up, a maniacal grin firmly fixed to her face.
It also features Kevin, who’s kind of awkward, kind of chubby, and takes a break from warfare to chill behind a piece of rubble and smash a burger. Straight up hero, imo.
“Y’all gonna see beast mode,” says Lynch, who actually appears in the game itself.
“Beast mode?” asks Wayne. “Nah. It’s Kevin mode.”
The thing was directed by Wayne McClammy, and features the whole “No matter who you are, there’s a soldier in all of us” tagline.
It’s not the first time COD has used A-listers in its advertising before; Kevin Spacey, Robert Downey Jr, Jonah Hill, Megan Fox, and Taylor Kitsch have all lent their talents to the franchise. TBH we doubt any of them have Cara’s social media reach – already the YouTube page is filled with comments along the lines of “I only came here for Cara” – so tbh it looks like an unsubtle play to get the female non-gamer market in.
OR, it’s just to give Cara a vehicle for fulfilling her role as resident queen of badassery. Either way, Black Ops III is out on November 6 and can be pre-ordered here.
