Marshawn Lynch is taking "Beast Mode" from the gridiron to gaming this fall, when he appears in the latest edition of the popular Call of Duty franchise Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Lynch is a longtime fan of the series and a new ESPN the Magazine article is giving a behind the scenes look at how the Seahawks running back is becoming a character in the game.

The All-Pro is like a kid in a candy store as the game's creators, Activision, run him through motion capture and facial scanning software, and then let him test out a beta version of the hotly anticipated game.

The article is filled with hilarious Marshawn moments, but the true highlight comes at the end when he pulls aside a programmer and hands him his e-mail address, saying "I need some cheat codes, feel me?"

Gamers can look forward to squaring off with Lynch when Call of Duty: Black Ops III hits stores on Nov. 6.
