"What you're seeing here is advance warfare," actor Kevin Spacey's character Jonathan Irons tells the camera as a drone zooms by in this latest trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Indeed it is.

The game is still more than two weeks away from release, but this new "Gameplay Launch Trailer" gives us a good look at the single player campaign, with a few glimpses at some of the explosive set pieces the series is known for.

In the game, players step into an advanced exoskeleton as Jack Mitchell, a soldier in a special unit working for Atlas, the Private Military Corporation led Spacey's character, Jonathan Irons.

It's the first Call of Duty game developed on Activision's new, three-year cycle for the juggernaut franchise. In announcing the new schedule earlier this year, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said this move will allow developers to have extra time to not only create new features to help push the brand forward, but also so they can spend more time polishing each game.

Advanced Warfare launches November 4 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. Preorders for the game, however, unlock on November 3 through the Day Zero Edition. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

sigh ... will not get drawn in this by this "Advanced Marketing" Add Campaign, someone review the MP and SP already ...

The trailers look good but must not get too drawn in because the trailers for SimCity suckered a lot of people into buying it and the game to this day does not live up to all it's hype. I am liking it though and look like it is going to be a powerhouse from face value. If this game does all it is hyped to do even if their are a bug or two Activision will score very big.

Without a doubt this is Titanfall!

just can't get excited for COD anymore.

I have to admit, the graphics on this are actually better than the previous COD rehashes. Although, they could use more detail on the character models. This looks promising.

Looking pretty good. Hopefully it will be better than the last two CoD's.

Call of Titanfall, advanced ripoff is more like it.

I dont really care about the multiplayer. If i want a good campaign and coop, i choose CoD. If i want Multiplayer, then i choose BF...

Avatar image for YOURMOM204

Seriously? A launch trailer for a game that isn't out for more than 2 weeks? Then it's not a launch trailer...

Avatar image for Pelezinho777

For me, COD ended with MW3...

<< LINK REMOVED >> I'm with you their. BOII was awful and Ghosts was better, but not great. This one looks promising though.

Ummmm did everyone forget about Destiny, and how well they advertised one of the worst, could have been great games of the year?

Take all that money that you used for the ad, Kevin Spacey, and the content that won't be in the game, and actually put it toward the main game, no season pass, or DLC, and you will win me over. Until then I will be happily playing DA:I (hopefully), and witcher 3 until you can do that.

This is worth a bootleg PC download in order to play the single player story, nothing more.

Advanced warfare perhaps, but not advanced enough armor design; that dude in the video thumbnail is covered in armor everywhere except the most important part - his head.

Avatar image for deactivated-59fa0a9978db8

<< LINK REMOVED >> Your right if they were advanced they would have vr headsets that had bullet proof cameras and oled displays for 360 view around them with ir and motion.

Avatar image for Hurvl

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Wolfenstein had the right idea there, the promotional material showed enemies with metal helmets fully covering their face, but they also had people in mech suits with their heads exposed, so I guess this trope is hard to avoid.

Avatar image for medafaded

No N.azi zombies two years in a row? That would be my only reason to play.

Avatar image for rarerichz

<< LINK REMOVED >> there is a zombie mode stupid.

Avatar image for medafaded

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Stupid would be the little B.I.T.C.H that did NOT see my question mark. So learn to read STUPID! hahahah.

Literally the best thing they could've done is go into the future with CoD.
And people still complain.
This game could be fantastic.

Avatar image for sensi2fr

@Xenro4 Remember Battlefield 2142? Lasers and others not-so-old-future garbage is what put me off from so many games.

Avatar image for gameroutlawzz

<< LINK REMOVED >> Except it has been done already with black ops 2.

Avatar image for Johny_47

"powah" changes everything, emphasis on the quotation marks, I wonder how much money they gave Kevin Spacey to feature in that sh^t fest.

Avatar image for GSyysonyonly4yyGS

Call Of Dudebro.

Jeez it's already almost November! How time flies!

Avatar image for Scarshi

Kevin Spacey sending me to kill people? That is always a good thing. Oorah!

I am still not sure about this game. The last COD game that I bought had some crappy multiplayer. I could not believe how big the maps were for an arcade fps game. If COD has bigger maps again then add more players.

Avatar image for jim_peterson

<< LINK REMOVED >> the problem wasn't so much the size but the fact they've made them so maze like that its hard to find anyone. Heres hoping they go back to the type of simpler maps we got in Black Ops.

Avatar image for Cashmoney007

You make a good point.

"Dear world, this game actually comes out on 04/11/2014." Your strange American cousins...and Belize.

On a serious note COD is always decent but because it doesn't change or improve greatly over the previous edition it has become a little bit flat, this one looks a bit different. Either way I'll buy it and that will be the day my Destiny, sure many others also, will gather dust...

Avatar image for dani_i89

<< LINK REMOVED >> You're trading one evil for another. Destiny should be gathering dust in the retail store. Same as CoD.

Totally agree with you on the date thing though. It is, in fact, 4/11/14

Avatar image for kyelo

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Quite possibly but these are my 'social' type games. I actually prefer gaming myself with decent story driven/huge open games but the likes of COD etc are played before me and my friends go to the pub, at night whilst chatting etc fun, non taxing arcade gaming.

Avatar image for ZERO_X02

Are they finally going to fix the lag? I don't care how much they change the gameplay; I'm tired of getting killed after I finish rounding corners. I want CoD to be about skill, not crappy ping.

Avatar image for swedishfriend

<< LINK REMOVED >> Yes the development team of COD Advanced warfare fixed the laws of physics just for you!

Avatar image for Scarshi

<< LINK REMOVED >> Don't live in Australia, seriously. The ping can be 4 numbers where I am ... :(

Avatar image for techs3ek

the show all the big bang boom to create hype, just to get people buy this game.

Avatar image for karkar88

<< LINK REMOVED >> its like Michael Bay style my friend ... more boom more money

Avatar image for Printul_Noptii

all hate aside, this actually looks pretty good !

Looks exciting, I'm getting this.
