Call of Duty Online nabs Captain America Chris Evans

call of duty online 2

Call of Duty Online, the free-to-play shooter exclusive to China just recruited a major asset for its ranks. Actor Chris Evans, mostly known for his role as Captain America but also the star of the extremely good Snowpiercer is now the frontman for the game, an announcement that even deserved a live action trailer, as you can see below. This is just a small teaser and the full trailer is going to be released later, in a still undisclosed date.

Tencent Games just revealed that the test phase for Call of Duty Online is going to begin on January 11, 2015, as seen in the poster below. While exclusive to China, a release of Call of Duty Online in other regions isn’t completely out of the equation, but for now it seems unlikely. Devel0pment began at Activision Shanghai but is now at Raven Software, a North American studio.

    Why is Chris Evans in the ad for CHINA’S Call of Duty Online? I mean… huh. I guess all the COD games are about US soldiers or mercenaries (or whatever Kevin Spacey uses in Advanced Warfare), but still. I would assume that China’s version would be about, I dunno, not American and our military campaigns?

    I just think it’s weird. If this was an ad for Advanced Warfare, like the one we actually got with Taylor Kitsch, I’d get it. But for COD Online, you’d figure the guy who saves the players would be, like, Hong Kong celebrities and/or Chinese action stars. Donnie Yen, Tiger Chen, Jay Chou, those types, yeah?

      My thoughts exactly. If this game is going to be China exclusive (even if it’s just at the beginning, who knows), using an American celebrity is kinda out of place. They should go for a Chinese celebrity.

      Crazy marketing is crazy, but I guess everyone knows Chris Evans now, so it could work.
