GAME HEAD On Spike TV Goes Reality In Special Call of Duty 3 Episode

16 Recruits Answer The Ultimate "Call Of Duty" Challenge:

To Compete In Real-Life Military Style Competition On Spike TV′s GAME HEAD

Premieres Friday, November 10 at 12:30 AM ET/PT

GAME HEAD: Call of Duty 3: Challenge combines the heart-pounding action of the best-selling video game franchise with the unscripted drama of the best reality TV.

Airing on Friday, November 10th (12:30 - 1:00 AM, ET/PT), this special episode of Spike TV′s GAME HEAD series was shot at a secret military base this past September, when 16 unsuspecting average-Joe gamers arrived straight from their couches and game rooms to be confronted by real-life military drill sergeant, J.B. Spisso who quickly convinces them that this is not a video game!

Viewers will get to see what happens when a game becomes a reality. Pushed beyond their wildest dreams, each contestant is forced to overcome intense physical and mental pain and exhaustion to compete for the Grand Prize. Contestants complete grueling real-life physical and mental challenges such as a very convincing boot camp and a treacherous obstacle course that also requires them to rappel down from incredible heights. Challenges culminate in a sudden-death paintball "Deathmatch" competition.

GAME HEAD: Call of Duty 3: Challenge is a special episode of Spike TV′s popular GAME HEAD series, a weekly half-hour news magazine show dedicated to everything that is happening in the hard core culture of video games. Airing the same week that Call of Duty 3 is released, the winner of the televised competition will receive a Grand Prize package that includes VIP access to Spike TV′s "Video Game Awards," a home entertainment system, and a trip for two to Normandy, France, the setting of so much of the action in the popular game franchise.

Call of Duty 3 is scheduled for release in November for the Xbox 360(tm) and Xbox(r) video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft, PlayStation(r)3 computer entertainment system and PlayStation(r)2 computer entertainment system and the upcoming Wii(tm) from Nintendo. The title is the follow up to Call of Duty 2, which was the No. 1 Xbox 360 launch title, and as of Aug. 7, remains the No. 1 played Xbox 360 multiplayer title on Xbox Live(r) online entertainment network based on a count of worldwide unique users (courtesy Microsoft). Call of Duty 3 features an epic and cinematic single player mode and multiplayer action for up to 24 players. Call of Duty 3 is rated "T" (Teen - Blood, Mild Language, Violence).
