"Cat is out of the bag," tweeted Kevin Spacey as he and Activision unveiled the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare trailer, which both previews one hell of an action-packed game and prominently features the 'House of Cards' star as he readies to bring some Underwood-ian power-mongering to the video game world.
For the first time in franchise history, Activision and Treyarch are making a paid Call of Duty add-on 100% free for a limited time. This weekend, you'll be able to enjoy all the maps and features of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's Revolution pack with no cost.
It's no secret we're pretty big into video games and the whole idea of bringing some of the fan favorites to life on the big screen. With Ghost Recon, Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, Deus Ex, Need for Speed and God of War as the latest ones to start preliminary motions for their companion movies, we still have our own list of bestsellers we'd like to see join in on the action, one of which is def
