Infinity Ward and Activision released a star-studded trailer for their upcoming video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II on Sunday (Oct. 9).
The promotional video, titled “Squad Up,” features artists, athletes, actors, and popular internet streamers, namely Lil Baby, Nicki Minaj, Bukayo Saka, Pete Davidson, Kane Brown, Jalen Ramsey, David Long Jr., Lando Norris, FaZe Clan members, and more.
The My Turn artist opens the trailer, putting his rap spin on a classic military chant. As the video progresses, each aforementioned celebrity appears on the battlefield, on the street, or in their homes, illustrating the variety of people who have played the popular shooter series throughout its almost 20-year existence.
Nicki Minaj’s presence was especially noteworthy for many, as Cardi B revealed last month that she was originally supposed to partner with Call of Duty but missed the shoot date due to her recent court case. Given the longstanding feud between the two, it was a point of humor for many fans over the weekend (though it’s safe to assume that Infinity Ward and Activision had no malicious intent).
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II will available for purchase on Oct. 28 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, PC, and Xbox One. Those who digitally pre-order the game will be able to play its campaign as early as Oct. 20. As the artists say throughout the trailer, it will soon be time to “squad up.”
