Kit Harington, the actor who plays Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, is the villain in the new Call of Duty - and Activision has finally shown him off in action and in-game.

In Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Harington plays Admiral Salen Kotch, the leader of the Settlement Defense Front.

At the beginning of the game, the SDF launch a surprise attack on UNSA forces in Geneva and the Moon Port Gateway, leaving protagonist Lt. Nick Reyes in charge of the Retribution, one of Earth's last remaining warships.

The story video also offers a glimpse at another Call of Duty celebrity appearance: UFC fighter Conor McGregor plays an SDF goon who punches the player in the face. Appropriate.

If nothing else, Activision knows the Call of Duty audience pretty well!
