Modern Warfare 3 is being created by three separate US studios: Infinity Ward, Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games. So it's something of a surprise to see New York get quite such a violent battering in the first trailer.
Activision's teaser footage for the game , which was release last night, shows The Big Apple getting pulverised - both in the handily subtitled 'America' part, and later on in the video.
Here, we've grabbed 31 stills of the action, in which you can see some very cool naval manoeuvres (can you spot the Statue Of Liberty in the background?) as well as a major attack on what appears to be Wall Street.
Modern Warfare 3 is due for release worldwide for PC, 360 and PS3 on November 8.
