Four Milan players got a chance to play one of the year's most highly-anticipated video games before it hits stores this weekend.

Milan posted a video Thursday afternoon as a promotion for "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3," which will be released Friday. Mario Balotelli, Andrea Bertolacci, Ignazio Abate and Alessio Cerci got a chance to play the game with eight of Italy's best "YouTube gamers," video gamers other people watch play games on YouTube, in the locker room at the San Siro.

The four footballers were split up onto two teams. Balotelli was captain of one team, playing Bertolacci. Abate was the captain of the other team, playing with Cerci. Each captain picked four gamers for the showdown on PlayStation 4.

Check out the highlights below. Balotelli's team made easy work of Abate's. It was a tough match for Abate, who finished with no kills and 17 deaths. In fairness, he has bigger things to worry about than video games. Just look at his adorable son.
