Following on from the video release of new single Berzerk, videogame publisher Activision has confirmed that Eminem has partnered with the next reiteration of the firm’s infamous ‘Call of Duty’ series to release a special edition of forthcoming album MMLP2.
MMLP2, the follow-up to Eminem’s 2000 Marshall Mathers LP, often mooted as being the strongest, and most influential of the rapper’s discography, will not only contain the lead single Berzerk, but also Survival, a track premiered mere weeks ago as the official soundtrack to the ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ game.
Activision have confirmed that the date of the game’s release (5th November) coincide with that of the forthcoming LP; fans who buy the game on launch day will receive a unique code that allows for the download of a special edition of the new album.
Regarding the partnership, Activision’s Tim Ellis said “‘Call of Duty’ is the ultimate adrenaline rush….. It’s the intensity and heart-pounding excitement you feel as the action unfolds. And Eminem embodies this same spirit and captures this in his music. The breadth of this program takes our partnership to a new level and will continue to unfold in the months to come. It’s going to be a massive day in entertainment with the launch of ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ and [The] Marshall Mathers LP 2 both hitting on November 5th.”
