Peter Stormare Returns As ‘The Replacer’ To Promote Call Of Duty DLC

Back when Black Ops II was the latest game in the Call of Duty rotation, Activision created a character called The Replacer to promote the game. Played by Peter Stormare (Armageddon, Fargo), the character stepped in to give average joes more time for fraggin’.

With the first Call of Duty: Black Ops III map pack, Awakening, nearly upon us, Stormare has re-enlisted. A new video promoting the four maps and new zombies chapter features the actor returning to the role of The Replacer.

The humorous video also gives us a solid look at the four maps. And Stormare’s ankles. Meow.

The Awakening DLC will be out on February 2 for PlayStation 4. Xbox One and PC gamers will get in about 30 days later. The content is, as of now, not in the cards for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
