The three-time Formula 1 champion driver is to make a cameo appearance as an engineer working on the Retribution - one of the United Nations Space Alliance's (UNSA) last remaining warships - in the forthcoming Activision game.

He said: "I've been a 'Call of Duty' fan for long time, so it's an absolute honour to be part of this game and the franchise.

"The experience of being put into the game - from the facial scanning process to working with the team on the performance capture stage and just being able to meet the developers at the studio to get a glimpse at all the hard work that goes into the game - this has been an incredible experience."

Lewis' character is called into action to help fix the warship following a devastating attack on the fleet during the game's early moments.

Taylor Kurosaki, narrative director at Infinity Ward, said: "Everyone at Infinity Ward was excited to work with Lewis since we're all huge fans of his.

"He came to 'Call of Duty' with the same approach he takes to the racetrack, determined to nail his performance - which he absolutely did!"

'Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare' is scheduled for release on November 4th on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.
