Eminem's not only got game, he's got a hot track!

The rap superstar has released "Survival," his first new anthem in two years that not only will appear on his upcoming eighth studio album, but is featured in Call of Duty: Ghosts, the latest installment in Activision's first-person shooter franchise hitting stores on Nov. 5.

The song, featuring New Royales singer Liz Rodrigues, accompanies a trailer for Ghosts and finds Shady rapping about never backing down no matter the obstacles.

"Cause I'mma fight 'til I die or win, Biting the dust it'll just make me angrier / wait, let me remind you of what got me this far, picture me quitting / Now draw a circle around it and put a line through it, slut, It's survival of what?," rails Eminem.

No word yet on a release date for the still-untitled record, which the 40-year-old MC once again coproduced with his longtime mentor, Dr. Dre. But Eminem's manager, Paul Rosenberg, told Billboard back in February that it should drop "post-Memorial Day."

As part of a warm-up, the hip-hop star flew across the pond for some dates in Europe, performing just a few days ago before some 80,000 fans at Dublin, Ireland's Slane Castle. On Thursday he's slated to play St. Denis, France followed by headlining gigs at the U.K.'s Reading and Leeds festivals on Aug. 24 and 25 respectively.

A stateside tour is also said to be in the works.

Eminem's last album was 2010's multiplatinum-selling Recovery which spawned the No. 1 hit "Love the Way You Lie," featuring Rihanna. In 2011, he also reunited with his Bad Meets Evil collaborator Royce da 5'9" for the EP, Hell: The Sequel, which saw the 8 Mile star team up with such special guests as Bruno Mars on "Lighters" and Mike Epps on "I'm on Everything."
