Cody Bellinger can add video game character to his resume.
Fresh off the first World Series title of his career with the Dodgers last month, Bellinger is taking his talents digital for a role in the popular “Assassin’s Creed” video game series. Bellinger will be a featured character — a Viking named Otta Sluggasson — in the newest installment of the series, “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla,” which comes out on Nov. 10.
Game manufacturer Ubisoft released some behind-the-scenes video of Bellinger’s motion-capture and voice-over work for his character. Ubisoft describes Sluggasson as “a Dane with a knack for hitting rocks very, very far.”
“I’m excited. I love video games, so when I heard I had the opportunity to be a character in a big video game, I was excited, I really was,” Bellinger told ESPN. “I’m kind of a video game nerd. My brother and I played Assassin’s Creed back in the day and used to love it. The graphics are so realistic. It’s a game that will take up a lot of your time.”
In order to advance in the game’s story mode, Bellinger said players will have to beat his character in a challenge.
