Activision has recruited rapper Snoop Dogg to perform voiceover work for the next Call of Duty: Ghosts downloadable content. As detailed in the video above, the famous rapper's voice will appear in an upcoming voice pack launching April 22 on Xbox Live with other platforms to follow. The voice pack will sell for $3.
Call of Duty: Ghosts developer Infinity Ward wrote the lines for Snoop Dogg, but he says he was able to add his own flair, or "Snoopisms" as he calls them, to the phrases. Some of these lines include "Squad member active: A brother from another mother" and "Homies out the joint. It's party time." You'll also hear his voice say "Don't stop. Cap 'em and shank 'em" and "Ballistic vest ready. Those are some fine-ass threads."
Here's what Snoop Dogg had to say about the partnership. "What interests me most about the project is that my voice could be connected with a game that's so hip and so hood. It says alot. It's associated with greatness," he said.
Also on April 22, Activision will launch a "Drill Instructor" voice pack voiced by R. Lee Ermey, who you probably know as the drill sergeant from Stanley Kubrick's 1987 film Full Metal Jacket. Various character and weapon specialization packs are also launching April 22. You can read about all the new microtransactions coming to Call of Duty: Ghosts at the game's website.
Snoop Dogg is no stranger to video games. He launched his own video game, Way of the Dogg, last year and even paid homage to Pokemon in one of his new music videos. Oh, and there was also that time Ubisoft recruited him for a weird video to announce the release date for Rayman Legends.
