Activision has released a new launch trailer for its first person shooter game Modern Warfare 3.

Modern Warfare 3, the next game in the Call of Duty series, will hit shelves November 8. The game features new multi-player modes, new weapons and proficiencies, 16 new maps and much more. As VentureBeat reporter Dean Takahashi points out, it’s a big improvement over last year’s multiplayer for Call of Duty Black Ops.

The timing of the trailer release coincides with tomorrow’s launch of Battlefield 3 — presumably to keep gamers from spending their money on the rival game. Both games will be fighting it out for billions of dollars in retail spending during the fall holiday season, and both are on our list of the best games of the fall.

We’ve embedded the new trailer for Modern Warfare 3 below. Let us know what you think in the comments.
