The first Modern Warfare 3 gameplay trailer has been released, and it confirms the previously rumoured November 8 2011 release date.

Throughout the trailer we see America, England, Paris, and Germany under attack - the four locations shown in the original teaser trailers.

In London, an underground carriage is shown derailing and tumbling through the air.

The end of the trailer features Makarov (he of 'No Russian' fame) talking about his plans for further nasty business and the words WW3 turning into the MW3 logo. I counted at least five explosions.

Earlier this month, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 single-player details were leaked onto the internet - including a complete draft of the plot.

To respond to the leak, Activision made MW3 official and released a set of teaser trailers ahead of their intended schedule.
