Seattle Seahawk’s running back, Marshawn Lynch will make his video game debut later this year in Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops III. ESPN dropped the announcement today, when they revealed the official cover of their next magazine issue.
Due to hit newsstands this Friday, ESPN’s very first eSports issue provides an exclusive look at the creation of his character via motion capture, body scanning and more. “Beast Mode”, as he is referred to in the NFL, will be playing a villain in the game’s campaign and looks to bring the same intensity he delivers on the gridiron, with his role.

Lynch is a huge fan of the COD franchise and has been since his days in College. He also feels that it is parallel with his on-field philosophy.
“You’re shooting up everything but always fighting for a bigger picture. The whole game is Beast Mode.”
Marshawn’s inclusion in “Black Ops III” marks the first time an athlete will appear in a Call of Duty title. You can read more about Lynch’s experience in Activision’s motion capture studio here.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III will release on November 6, 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
