Call Of Duty Online‘s Full Trailer Would Be Great Even If It Didn’t Have Chris Evans
But him being in it doesn't hurt. Of course.
Seriously, this China-only Call of Duty trailer could have had an unusually buff potato playing the part that Chris Evans plays and I would have loved it. Then again, that might be because I’m a sucker for that trope where TV shows jump back and forth between being inside and outside a video game. And that trope of when somebody saves a comrade in arms with a pithy action movie slogan and then later they use the same line while saving him. Oh, and zombies. Always zombies.
Call of Duty Online was developed exclusively for China by Activision, and will feature gameplay elements from Modern Warfare, Ghost and Advanced Warfare. It premieres next week on January 11th as a free-to-play online game with in-app purchases for weapons and avatar upgrades, and represents over three years of work in creating something that would appeal to the Chinese market, where western shooters are generally unpopular and often even banned by the government. Man, no wonder they spent so much money getting Captain America to shill their product.
