Today Activision made available the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer reveal trailer video with details below from the press release, as follows:
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is a new installment of the Call of Duty series. It is being developed by Sledgehammer Games on PlayStation 4, XBox One and PC and by High Moon Studios on PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 platforms.
It is set to be released on November 4, 2014 for XBox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, XBox 360 and PC.
