Marshawn Lynch has been cast as a villain in the next Call Of Duty game, Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3. He is the first NFL star to be a part of the popular franchise.
The decision should excite a number of NFL fans who love his toughness and it could even get 49ers fans into it since they will likely have the opportunity to destroy him somehow, although some may question the choice.
It is exciting to see anyone recognizable in video games, and many people may not even realize that a number of famous actors have also voiced video game characters in popular franchises such as Call Of Duty, which has featured famous voices throughout.
Marshawn Lynch has been the starting running back for the Seattle Seahawks for several years and after leading them to a Super Bowl and earning the nickname of “Beast Mode” for his toughness and ability to break through defenders, it only makes sense that he would be cast as a villain in a game.

His likeness and movements were captured for the game and it will certainly be exciting for NFL fans to see what his character will be like in the game, saying something other than “I’m only here so I won’t get fined.”
While gamers may think that something this cool would have to be a part of an extra downloadable content package, his character will actually be featured within the game’s main campaign, and his nickname connects to the game’s character almost too well.
The next game in the series will take place in the year 2065 when cybernetic advancements give rise to augmented human soldiers. Their mission leads them to a seedy bar in Singapore, where they encounter an underworld boss and his elite squad of mercenaries, including a 5-foot-11, 215-pound battering ram of a man who looks exactly like the world’s most ferocious running back in 2015, Marshawn Lynch.
Marshawn Lynch is thrilled to be a part of the Call Of Duty franchise and has actually been a fan of the series as a player since playing in college at California, even saying, “You’re shooting up everything but always fighting for a bigger picture. The whole game is Beast Mode.”
