World renowned Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton will star in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Activision has announced.
Hamilton will play the role of an engineer aboard the Retribution, a warship belonging to the United Nations Space Alliance.
“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.”
Lewis Hamilton isn’t the only famous figure to appear in Infinite Warfare. Game of Throne’s Kit Harington plays Salen Kotch, the game’s main villain.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare will launch on November 4 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
