Eminem released a music video for his Call of Duty: Ghosts trailer theme song, "Survival," today.
The song will be featured on the special edition of the Marshall Mathers LP 2. The regular album is slated to release on Nov. 5. The special edition can be obtained through a download code when the new Call of Duty game is purchased at GameStop, and will feature "Survival" as a bonus track.
"The energy and intensity of 'Survival' really matches 'Call of Duty: Ghosts,'" Eminem said in a press release through Billboard in September. "I'm excited to continue to be a part of the franchise."
Also interesting to note is the final shot of the music video, which features Eminem's old home in Detroit. That shot serves as the cover for the MMLP2.
"Survival" was world premiered in August at a Call of Duty worldwide multi-player event. Eminem appeared on a video at the end of the trailer and told those watching that a music video for the song was on the way, and that details for the album would be coming shortly.
"The [new] song's about fighting back and it seems like it fits Ghosts perfectly," Eminem said in the video statement. "I'm gonna be a big part of the [Call of Duty] game. My new song's in it, got a video dropping for it soon too."

The song "Berzerk" is the first single from the upcoming album, and was released on Sept. 9.
The video is a slew of celebrity guests such as Kendrick Lamar, Rick Rubin, Slaughterhouse, and Kid Rock.
"Berzerk" is a throwback tune to classic hip-hop from the '80s reminiscent of the Beastie Boys. The attitude, the feel, the beat, and now even the video pays homage to the golden era of rap.
