Do you know what the current world record for ‘most gratuitous explosions in a single minute' is? Nor do we, but it's safe to venture that this latest clip from Call of Duty: Ghosts eclipses it. With the game's release imminent (November 5), it's time for Infinity Ward to bring us one last preemptive ogle at the Ghosts in action. And what balls-out action it is.

In this installment, the global balance of power is in upheaval in the wake of a kinetic bombardment. The United States are fighting for their position as superpower, and they aren't afraid to bust out their elite crew of stealthy badasses to do it.

Above, you'll see a normal day at the office for the Ghosts: flying helicopters into careening trains, cruising about shark-infested oceans in a wetsuit and leaping from the windows of skyscrapers. All while Eminem gets his rap on in the background. It's all so dramatic we had to lie down in a darkened room for several hours after viewing.
