Call of Duty Infinite Warfare's live action trailer is totally ridiculous

With just over a week until release, Activision has dropped a live-action trailer for Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare – and its ludicrousness can be summarised in two words: Michael Phelps.

Yes, it's lead star is certainly famous for the manner in which he pumps his guns – but usually down the local swimming baths, rather than on a war-torn space station.

Honestly, it's bonkers. And sort of brilliant as a result. Have a watch:

The vid is called 'Screw It, Let's Go To Space' and sends up this year's unending run of doom-tastic news masterfully – I laughed hard at the headline 'Canada builds wall'. It was directed by Peter Berg, and also stars US comedian Danny McBride.

Everything else is gunfire and noise and more gunfire, which in fairness is Call Of Duty in a nutshell. Just with 23 more Olympic gold medals than anyone is used to.

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare is out on PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 4.

Found something newsworthy? Tell us!

I'm GamesRadar's sports editor, and obsessed with NFL, WWE, MLB, AEW, and occasionally things that don't have a three-letter acronym – such as Chvrches, Bill Bryson, and Streets Of Rage 4. (All the Streets Of Rage games, actually.) Even after three decades I still have a soft spot for Euro Boss on the Amstrad CPC 464+.
