World champion F1 racing driver Lewis Hamilton will appear in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
Hamilton’s cameo appearance sees him play the role of an engineer aboard the Retribution, one of the United Nations Space Alliance’s last remaining warships, following a devastating attack on their fleet in the game’s opening moments.
In order to appear in the game the three time world champion took some time away from his busy driving schedule to head to Infinity Ward, where he was scanned and animated.
I’ve been a Call of Duty fan for long time, so it’s an absolute honour to be part of this game and the franchise” said Lewis Hamilton. The experience of being put into the game – from the facial scanning process to working with the team on the performance capture stage and just being able to meet the developers at the studio to get a glimpse at all the hard work that goes into the game – this has been an incredible experience.”
Everyone at Infinity Ward was excited to work with Lewis since we’re all huge fans of his,” said Infinity Ward Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki. He came to Call of Duty with the same approach he takes to the racetrack, determined to nail his performance – which he absolutely did!”
