Chris Evans is a Different Kind of Hero in the Action-Packed Call of Duty Online TrailerBritt Hayes |
A couple of weeks ago, we saw a brief teaser for Call of Duty Online featuring ‘Captain America’ star Chris Evans. Today brings the full live-action trailer for the new game, in which Evans goes from Marvel superhero to video game war hero, fighting alongside his fellow players in a promo for the new Chinese game. Yes, that’s right—Call of Duty Online was made exclusively for China. Sorry, guys.
Call of Duty Online has been in Beta over in China since earlier last year, but the game is finally getting an official release in the country, which lifted its ban on console games in 2013. The latest Call of Duty game from Activision is free to play (if you live in China, of course) and is based on micro-transactions, allowing players to purchase upgrades, weapons, layouts, and characters from other popular Call of Duty games, like Modern Warfare and Black Ops. As you can see in the above trailer, that does mean that you’ll be able to battle enemies like zombies, which first appeared in Call of Duty: World at War.
The full version of the game will be released on January 11, and given that it’s exclusive to China, we doubt we’ll be seeing Evans promoting the game in the U.S. He’s not the only actor who’s been featured in live-action Call of Duty trailers, though—Taylor Kitsch and “Blurred Lines” music video star Emily Ratajkowski recently appeared in a trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
