We recently saw the Call of Duty: Black Ops launch trailer. Now we have the first Call of Duty: Black Ops commercial, with the game set to launch on Nov. 9th.

The commercial features Kobe Bryant and Jimmy Kimmel, and is dubbed “There is a Soldier in All of Us.” It runs 60 seconds and will debut, aside from online video sites, on Sunday during NFL games.

Rather than using gameplay footage, the ad shows various people, intimating that all us us have a soldier, or a gamer, inside. Aside from Kimmel and Bryant, the ad includesa businesswoman, a hotel concierge, a Best Buy worker, and a fast-food worker, shooting actual guns to background music by the Rolling Stones.

It is a sequel to the Treyarch’s previous title in the series, Call of Duty: World at War, and is the first Call of Duty title set during the Cold War era. The MSRP of the Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows editions is $59.99, while the Nintendo Wii version is $49.99, and the Nintendo DS version is $29.99.

At $149.99, the Prestige Edition will offer everything that the Hardened Edition does, but adds a real RC-XD remote-control vehicle modeled after the in-game Killstreak reward, which gives video and audio feedback to the controller.
