According to Entertainment Weekly, the 29-year-old actor will be the face of an enemy faction called the SDF (Settlement Defense Front) in the upcoming “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare”.
Instead of taking on an honourable role like Jon Snow, Harington is embracing his dark side this time around. That means video game players will go face-to-face with Harington as they become Captain Reyes, leader of one of Earth’s last warships, in their quest to save all of humanity.
So far it seems that the studio’s producers are pretty satisfied with Harington’s performance, with narrative director of “Infinity Ward”, Taylor Kurosaki, complementing that “Kit is an amazing talent, and the consummate pro.”
“Our story is about an epic showdown of opposing forces, and Kit immersed himself into the role and truly became the embodiment of the enemy, the Settlement Defense Front. We can’t wait for fans to see Kit play an entirely different kind of character,” added Kurosaki.
In addition, the game also included some more Hollywood firepower in the form of director Guy Ritchie, who will reportedly be directing all of Harington’s scenes.
