Activision is getting ready to release its blockbuster live action ad for Call of Duty: Ghosts, and in keeping with tradition the ad is set to feature a star-studded cast again this year.
The ad, titled ‘Epic Night Out,’ will have one marked change this year, however, by having a female star in the leading role, a first for the yearly advertisement. And that actress will be none other than Megan Fox.
You’ll remember that Ghosts is the first time the popular Call of Duty franchise is introducing female soldiers. So it’s fitting to have Fox in the leading role, who had this to say about the significance of her role:
“I know it’s going to be cool for my son to grow up and one day say ‘holy crap, that’s my mom… It’s about time that we have incorporated females into the cast of characters of these games because there are a lot of girl gamers.”
The live action ad will be unveiled tomorrow, Saturday November 2nd, so make sure you stay tuned. It’s being described as the Hangover meets Call of Duty, and Activision CMO Tim Ellis says “Each year we want to shock and awe our audience and the world…and we feel like this is the best work we’ve ever done.” So you won’t want to miss it when it’s finally released tomorrow!
Call of Duty: Ghosts is out on November 5th across Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U, and will be a Xbox One and PS4 launch title in both the US and Europe.
