A Hero’s Welcome: GMC HUMMER EV Joins Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® II
GMC is teaming up with Call of Duty® to feature the HUMMER EV Pickup in Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® II and Call of Duty®: Warzone™ 2.0 this fall.
Santa Monica, CA – The GMC HUMMER EV first took the world by storm in 2020, and now it’s entering the global gaming world in a big way. For the first time ever, the world’s first all-electric supertruck will be a part of Activision’s critically acclaimed Call of Duty® video game franchise.
Offering up to a GM-estimated 1,000 horsepower, 11,500 lb-ft of torque, a 0-60 mph (0-97 kmh) time of approximately 3-seconds1, and 13 inches of suspension travel for incredible off-road capability, the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup is the perfect truck for players to transport their team across any terrain or map.
“The GMC HUMMER EV Pickup is truly the world’s first all-electric supertruck. Now, it is entering the gaming world where it will define a new chapter of capability and bring players together across the globe,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC. “Bringing the supertruck into Call of Duty will allow players to elevate their experience and provide a new way to play, powered by a nearly quiet and fast-accelerating EV.”
In a massive year and new era for the franchise, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II brings with it a new level of engagement to players. The GMC HUMMER EV Pickup is the first all-electric vehicle in the Call of Duty® franchise and will be a playable vehicle within the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, in addition to making an appearance in the action-packed Modern Warfare II single-player campaign.
“We’re excited to bring the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup into the fold for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0,” said William Gahagan, director of Global Partnerships at Activision. “There’s nothing like driving across Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 in an all-electric, 1,000 horsepower supertruck. I can’t wait for players to get their hands on it this fall.”
Players will be able to utilize the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup’s off-road capability across the massive map, featuring a variety of terrains and conditions. Whether on the trails of Moab in real life, or navigating the massive play space of Warzone 2.0, the HUMMER EV Pickup provides players with a vehicle they can trust to help conquer their challenges.
Mark your calendars, as two worlds come together with this exciting integration of the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup into Call of Duty® Modern Warfare® II, which is scheduled to debut on Oct. 28, 2022, and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 coming this fall.
