EntertainmentKit Harington Is Evil in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and It's All Your Fault
We probably deserve this.
It looks like Kit Harington has finally had enough of all your jokes and clever bon mots. So you think I know nothing, he fumed to himself, probably. Always obsessed with my hair and beard and what it meant for your precious HBO show, never thinking of the man underneath, he seethed, I think. I was in Seven Days In Hell too, you know, he might have pleaded to the mirror recently. I'm funny. Why doesn't anybody talk about that?
This is, we presume, the only explanation for why Kit Harington decided that is next role will be that of bad guy. Harington will play Rear Admiral Salen Kotch, the man behind a campaign to take over the entire solar system in the video game Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. (Because war being anything other than infinite would be very bad for video games)
He even has a scar and an angry snarl and wow check out all those graphics it's almost like he's really inside the computer.
Unfortunately for Kit Haring-fans, Jon Snow's screentime in the trailer is rather sparse, kind of like a dash of thyme or cilantro in the soupy mess of explosions and spaceships that is Infinite Warfare—a game where you, the player, must fight against Kit Harington's stump speeches and the spaceships they command. Like most Call of Duty games, it looks like a noisy roller-coaster of a shooting game, one that should probably come with all of the warnings that precede most roller coasters. Only, you know, this one's in space? And looks fun enough to perhaps intrigue the Call of Duty skeptics who may have grown weary over eleven straight years of Call of Duty games, which, in the video game industry, pretty much qualifies it as a sports game.
Regardless, what I want to know is why Kit Harington volunteered to be the Evil Space Man and not The Jock in Infinite Warfare's bonus game Zombies in Spaceland, an '80s themed amusement park where '80s stereotypes fight endless hordes of zombies with elaborately themed traps and weapons. I mean, look at it:
Kit Harington could be enjoying himself, shooting dance-zombies with the character voiced by Jay Pharoah whilst wielding Ghostbusters lasers. But instead, he wants to be ruthless and shit.
This is all our fault.
