"The experience of being put into the game - from the facial scanning process, to working with the team on the performance capture stage, and just being able to meet the developers at the studio to get a glimpse at all the hard work that goes into the game - has been an incredible experience."

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a first-person shoot-em-up developed by Infinity Ward, and published by Activision.
It is the 13th installment of the hugely successful Call of Duty [COD] series, and it follows on from the 'Modern Warfare', and 'Black-Ops' story lines.
The latest installment differs from its predecessors in the way that it swaps conventional combat scenarios for futuristic space warfare.
The player takes control of Captain Nick Reyes of the Special Combat Air Recon [SCAR] to battle for control of the Solar System against the Settlement Defense Front [SDF], who are a hostile force attempting a takeover.
Despite the fact that the game is yet to be released to the public it is already starting to attract attention from organisations within the gaming world.
It has already received a nomination for the 2016 Game Critics Awards in the 'best action game' category.
Hamilton's animated scene is said to take place at the beginning of the game.
