You might recognize a few familiar faces, including world champion swimmer Michael Phelps and actor Danny McBride (Vice Principals, Eastbound & Down, Tropic Thunder). The trailer is called “Screw It, Let’s Go To Space.”
“If ever there was a year when people could use a break from the headlines for a little good old fashioned escapist entertainment, 2016 is it,” said Tim Ellis, CMO, Activision. “‘Screw It, Let’s Go To Space’ captures this feeling on a global scale and transports you into the epic gameplay and settings of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. It’s a thrill ride like no other, and it’s coming November 4th.”

From businessmen to newscasters to delivery drivers to Michael Phelps and Danny McBride, everyone in the spot leaves their differences and stresses behind to blast off into space and let loose in an action-packed thrill ride of epic proportions.
