Conan looks at Marshawn Lynch in the new Call of Duty video game

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is trading footballs for machine guns in the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 video game. A new "Conan" gave viewers a sneak peak of Lynch getting in the game.

Professional football player and certified cat-video-lover Marshawn Lynch is going to be in the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 video game. On Wednesday night's episode of "Conan," viewers were treated to a video sneak peak of Lynch getting ready to be in the highly anticipated first person shooter.

Lynch is the first professional athlete to be featured in a Call of Duty game, and he's pretty excited about it. In the clip above, we see Lynch in a special suit designed to capture his movements so that they're perfectly replicated in-game. The video cuts back and forth between shots of the actual game and the motion capture process, giving viewers a good sense of how Lynch's work behind the scenes will translate to on-screen gameplay.

Plus, it's pretty funny to watch Lynch get really into wielding his plastic weapons and going all Beast Mode over the bad guys.

We don't ever actually see what Lynch will look like in the game, but given how amazingly realistic Kevin Spacey looked in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Lynch will look almost exactly like he does in the real world. All that will be missing, presumably, is his Seattle Seahawks jersey.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has a tentative release date of November 6, 2015, and will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the PC.
