The story trailer for Infinity Ward and Activision's "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" has arrived and it revolves around one very familiar face. The new trailer features "Game of Thrones"' Kit Harington, who stars as the Settlement Defense Front's leader, Rear Admiral Salen Kotch.

According to Collider, the 29-year old "Game of Thrones" actor even went on to shave his beard for the role and worked together with crime filmmaker Guy Ritchie, who has long been a friend of the franchise for "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare." The new trailer for "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" features "Game of Thrones"' Kit Harington the way no one has seen him before: cunning and determined and somewhat badass. Check out the trailer below.

"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" is set to arrive this November on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. The first-person shooter game from Infinity Ward will find "Game of Thrones"' Kit Harington as Rear Admiral Salen Kotch in the distant future where the Earth is barren of its natural resources.

Harington isn't the only actor to appear in "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare," as newly-appointed commander of the UNSA Warship Retribution, Captain Nick Reyes is played by "The A-Team" actor Brian Bloom, John Marshall Jones as Admiral Raines, Eric Ladin as Private Kashima, Jamie Gray Hyder as Nora Salter, David Harewood as SATO Marines Staff Sergeant Omar, and Jason Barry as Corporal Brooks.

"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare"'s new trailer features "Game of Thrones"' Kit Harington with a scowl and a scar on his face. He's very different than the Jon Snow we've all come to adore. GQ even calls him "ruthless" in the trailer.

Meanwhile, is Infinity Ward looking to create a film series out of the "Call of Duty" franchise? The answer seems to point to yes. According to Cinemablend, Infinity Ward is "expects to produce multiple Call of Duty films with some potential for television projects as well," all set to be released in 2018 or 2019. Is the studio developing a film adaptation for "Call of Duty: Infinity Warfare?" Fans will have to wait and see.

In the meantime, gear up for the arrival of "Call of Duty: Infinity Warfare" this November 4.
