Activision sure has made some interesting choices when it comes to actors that provide voiceovers for their Call of Duty games. We’ve gotten quite a few superstars in the past, including Method Man, Snoop Dogg, Ozzy Man, and, as of most recently, Dr. Ken himself, Ken Jeong. But its latest choice could very well top them all, because it’s none other than…Grandma?
Yep, the publisher has confirmed today that it has released a Grandma Knows Best voiceover pack that goes for $3.99, and has someone who sounds just like a grandmother hitting you with commands while you fight your way through the game. It’s an interesting choice because, really, don’t we have enough parents yelling at us while we’re playing the game?
“Who’s the best at telling you what to do?” the description for the voice pack reads. “Grandma! Everyone knows that Grandma Knows Best so listen up while she’s calling out killstreaks or letting you know about enemy activity in multiplayer. Hurry up and win that MP battle because she’s got a pie waiting for you in the oven.” (Note: the pie is probably a lie.)
For that matter, if you haven’t picked up the other voiceover packs just yet, you can get all four – featuring Method Man, Ozzy Man, Ken Jeong and Grandma – in a bundle deal, going for $7.99. It’d be interesting to try and activate all four at once and hear what kind of conversation these guys would have – especially Ozzy Man and Grandma. Oh, to be a fly on the wall for that discussion…
It’s not likely we’ll be getting these voiceover packs for Call of Duty: WWII, considering it’s much more serious in tone than previous games, but you never know. For the time being, there’s a good amount of variety to be offered here, and, hey, it’s not often you get to hear a grandmother call out killstreaks. Usually we just hear stories about how she first met your grandpa or has a penchant for pickled pig’s feet. No? Just us?
