Seattle Seahawks running-back Marshawn Lynch will take his talents into the video game realm says ESPN Magazine. The latest issue, “the eSports edition,” features an article titled “The Whole Game is Beast Mode” which details Lynch’s involvement with the game. While Lynch isn’t the first athlete or celebrity to lend their voice to the franchise, he will be the first to actually be in the game.
“When we learned he’s a huge fan, we thought it’d be awesome to have him inside our game,” said Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia in the ESPN interview.
Lynch also went on to say in the interview that his fandom began back in college while he was running over defenders at the University of California. More announcements about Lynch’s involvement will be made in the upcoming months but we can expect Lynch to mow down enemies just as quickly as wimpy linebackers.
