Black Ops 3 trailer offers to take over your life so you can play new DLC

Awakening, the first round of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 DLC, is almost upon us. But how's a gamer with a busy schedule going to fit all that fragging into their schedule? If you believe a new trailer for the DLC, the answer is "a creepy actor who will take your place at social events and hit on your girlfriend's mom."

In case you don't recognize "The Replacer," that's Peter Stormare. He famously played Gaear Grimsrud in Fargo and Uli Kunkel in The Big Lebowski - a bad guy who likes pancakes and a German with an attack ferret, respectively. Destiny players might also recognize his voice as Arach Jalaal, the man who calls in patrol missions for Dead Orbit, while Until Dawn players might pick him out as the Analyst.

The Awakening DLC pack for Black Ops 3 comes with three new maps and a new episode of the zombies side-story. It'll be available on PS4 starting February 2, with Xbox One and PC versions to follow a month later.
