Come this November, fans of Call of Duty will have a new game developed by Sledgehammer Games. The trailer of the game has been leaked online, revealing what to expect in the new game that stars Hollywood actor, Kevin Spacey.

The name of the next installment was revealed by Destructoid source, and Game Informer confirmed the name and announced that the game will be its next cover story.

The trailer that makes the game look promising, reveals Spacey in a menacing new avatar. The story reportedly revolves around a soldier of a Fortune group that is run by Spacey in the game, which eventually turns on the US government.

The game will allow players to wear exo-skeletons that will also let them make huge jumps. It will provide them with advanced guns and armor and weaponized mech suit, and soldiers will also be able to climb buildings. Players and vehicles can go invisible via cloaks. It will also have hoverbikes, UAVs and advanced V-22 Ospreys.

From the trailer, the setting is most likely to be San Francisco, with images of the Golden Gate Bridge in tatters showing up.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will release on 4 November, 2014. It is not yet known for what consoles it will be released.

Additionally, Activision has also released a live-action video feature that shows some of the current Private Military Corporations (PMCs) like Blackwater playing a bigger role in conflicts. This teaser video shows that the PMCs might have an important role to play in the upcoming Call of Duty title.

"In the next Call of Duty, the world's most powerful military is not a country. It's a corporation," the description of the game reveals, further adding: "Could this actually happen?"

"In the last 20 years, global combat has seen a steady shift towards the use of private military corporations, or PMCs. What happens when the highest bidder becomes the world's next superpower?" it adds. 

The title of the video reads, "Call of Duty - Superpower for Hire," which is slated for reveal on 4 May 2014.
