'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington is in the new 'Call of Duty'

Jon Snow is no hero in 'Infinite Warfare.'

Kit Harington, the actor best known as the fearless, misunderstood warrior Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, plays a dastardly villain in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. He portrays the face of the Settlement Defense Front, a radical organization hellbent on destroying Earth. Even though no one in Game of Thrones is completely innocent, the Infinite Warfare gig is a far cry from Harington's regular role as a defender of humanity, Activision says.

"Kit is an amazing talent and the consummate pro," Infinity Ward narrative director Taylor Kurosaki says in a press release. "Our story is about an epic showdown of opposing forces, and Kit immersed himself into the role. ...We can't wait for fans to see Kit play an entirely different kind of character."

Activision and Infinity Ward, the game's developer, also worked with Snatch and Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie in creating Harington's character. Ritchie previously crafted Surprise, a live-action trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

Infinite Warfare hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 4th.
