The Mac Life releases a video of McGregor touring the Facebook office before undertaking various media duties. He then tries virtual reality gaming.
This is completely outside of the fight world. I didn’t think I would get on the front cover of a UFC video game. I saw a lot of things, but I didn’t see video games. But I’m happy to be here. I get approached all the time with roles and all this stuff. Not many of them are interesting but this one was definitely of interest to me so I went with it and it’s been good. It’s such a big game. I play a good load of games, but there’s only two games I actually really play that I’ve been obsessed with: The UFC game and Call of Duty. Now I’m in both of them. It’s very surreal.
McGregor talks about his role in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
My manager rang me and said there’s an opportunity to come in and be part of the game. I’ve played the game for many years. I was addicted to it at one stage, when I wasn’t training so much…I’d be up all night, literally all night. I’d wake up. I’d go training. I’d do two, maybe three hours training. I’d come home nice and early, I’d sit down and I’d play Black Ops II the whole night through…I was just hooked on it, bad hooked on it…To be a part of such a big game like Call of Duty…It’s just another dream come true.
In advance of the release of the official trailer, The Mac Life releases a video of McGregor’s motion capture for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
