‘Call of Duty’ released a teaser for the latest version of its video game series, ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II’ and sought the help of a few music industry heavyweights to entice fans to play.
The trailer begins in an aviation hangar, with Lil Baby serving as a drill sergeant, corralling troops with the scream “left, left, left, right, left.” As he shouts ‘Squad up!’ into the hangar, his troops ride out on motorbikes, with their engines ready to thunder. “It don’t matter where you’ve been/ Modern Warfare is back again,” Lil Baby sings from the inside of a monster truck.
Kane Brown then zooms in for the assist, from a very different setting. The country singer, who is doing an intimate show at a dive bar, invites the crowd to “drop on in/ no time to waste” before Nicki Minaj, who is aptly dressed in a skirt with a camouflage pattern, raps with a group of women as backup, “pull up with the Barbz/ superheroes, no capes.”

Athletes, actors and video game broadcasters also appeared in the promotional video, including Saturday Night Live alum Pete Davidson, English soccer player Bukayo Saka and others. ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II’, which is not a reboot of 2009’s ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’, will be released on 28th October for the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, PC and Xbox One.
