Seahawks Running Back Marshawn Lynch and Comedian Conan O'Brien Preview 'Call of Duty: Black Ops 3'

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is the first athlete to appear as a character in a 'Call of Duty' game.

Marshawn Lynch has teamed up with Conan O'Brien for a video game session before, and the result was this hilarious matchup of *Mortal Kombat X* with New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski ahead of Super Bowl XLIX.

The Seahawks running back and comedian are back together again to preview Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, which features Lynch as the first-ever athlete to appear in a Call of Duty game.

Lynch went through a motion-capture process earlier this year, allowing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 to pull his likeness into its virtual world, signature gold teeth and all.

"On my way out here I was kind of nervous because I didn't know what to expect," Lynch told ESPN in June of his character creation process. "At the end of the day it's a little bit of acting. I just think the whole aspect of the game is Beast Mode."

The game is set for a Nov. 6 release.
