Call of Duty: Warzone’s newest Operator is being released tomorrow and is voiced by an Italian rapper whose likeness was used for the character.
Call of Duty: Warzone is adding a new Operator tomorrow, and he’s voiced by an Italian rapper. Ahead of the update, Infinity Ward recently removed all vehicles to fix issues causing persistent server crashes in the game, which results from players driving out of bounds during matches. Potentially capitalizing on in-game vehicles, recent rumors suggest Call of Duty: Warzone’s Verdansk map may be getting a subway system, though, this has not been confirmed by Infinity Ward.
While Warzone’s primary attraction is its battle royale mode, some members of the community enjoy participating in Plunder, where they can focus on completing contracts and leveling up their characters and weapons before dropping into the competitive battle royale arena. Despite the game’s competitive nature, however, nefarious tactics are sometimes used to gain the upper hand. While Infinity Ward has acted against those who would provide or utilize hacks, underhanded strategies still lurk in the shadows.

Bringing a fresh face to Warzone, CoD’s free-to-play battle royale entry will release an Operator voiced by an Italian singer tomorrow, TheGamer reports. The new Operator is Morte, a former member of the Col. Moschin special forces voiced by rapper and actor Fabio Rovazzi, also known as Sergio Sulla. As a huge fan of Call of Duty, Rovazzi’s likeness was used for the character, who wears a cowboy hat as a reflection of his love for Western films.
The use of photogrammetry has become a much more common asset in the gaming industry, making it easier for companies to transport the likeness of high-profile celebrities into their games. The technology has also given more Hollywood actors the opportunity to apply their skills to video games and contribute to characters’ voices, blending two great entertainment mediums. Keanu Reeves is featured in the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, while Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen appeared in Death Stranding. Adding well-known actors to popular titles could give gamers more reasons to play the newest release, or reinforce their love for established franchises.
Video games demand creativity, and COVID-19 has increased the necessity for newer, more innovative ideas. Rovazzi isn’t the first musician to be featured in a game recently; Travis Scott kicked off a new trend in Fortnite by hosting a virtual concert that racked up millions of views. The trend continues with Rovazzi, though, the Italian rapper gets to be a playable character in Call of Duty: Warzone, which could encourage more musicians to get involved in the gaming industry on a more professional level.
