The Armed have released a new video for the song “An Iteration“, featuring a voice-over and cameo from one of the most recognized voices in video game history, David Hayter – the legendary voice behind Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid series.

We are beyond honored to see David Hayter take on the role of Dan Greene within The Armed Cinematic Universe.”
