Lewis Hamilton has officially made his video game voice-acting debut following the release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare on Friday.
Three-time Formula 1 world champion Hamilton announced last month that he would be enjoying a new cameo in the hugely-successful video game franchise, the latest edition of which was released today.
“I’ve been a Call of Duty fan for long time, so it’s an absolute honor to be part of this game and the franchise” Hamilton said.
“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.”
Following the game’s release, a video of Hamilton’s appearance has been put up on YouTube, which you can watch above.
Hamilton’s character is called, er, Hamilton, and plays engineer aboard the Retribution, one of the United Nations Space Alliance’s (UNSA) last remaining warships following a devastating attack on their fleet in the game’s opening moments.
Hamilton has long expressed an interest in moving into something besides F1 once his career is over, and has spent a lot of time recording music as well as making another cameo in the recent Zoolander 2 film.
