[VIDEO] Kevin Spacey: Democracy and Power in ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ TrailerPosted: May 2, 2014
“Ideas don’t determine who’s right. Power determines who’s right. And I have the power, so I am right.”
The game will release on November 4, with the trailer slated for release Sunday, but had to be posted three days earlier after it was leaked online.
The character uncannily looks like Kevin Spacey and acts like his House of Cards character Francis Underwood. The character speaks like Underwood’s character and is seen giving a speech about democracy and power.
“Ideas don’t determine who’s right. Power determines who’s right,” Spacey’s character says in the clip. “And I have the power, so I am right.”
Activision confirmed that Spacey is an official part of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The actor lends his voice and animated likeness to the game which focuses on the global shift toward using personal military corporations. In the game the most powerful military is not associated with a country but rather a corporation — run by a power-hungry executive, played by Spacey’s character.
Activision is under pressure to perform with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare after Call of Duty: Ghosts, which released last Novemeber, did not do very well. The game maker has upped the production values of the game, focusing on the gameplay and story, the latter of which was missing from Ghosts.
