The Third DLC map pack continues Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s best mode, Zombies, with a new 50’s inspired Creature Feature film staring the Mistress of the Dark herself, Cassandra Peterson (better known for her on-screen persona, Elvira), in a new scenario called “ATTACK OF THE RADIOACTIVE THING!”
Seriously at this point I’m waiting for them to find a way to incorporate the Mystery Science Theater 3000 into this mode.
“Attack of the Radioactive Thing!” will see the return of Willard Wyler, the enigmatic movie director villain portrayed with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Gotham) as he traps our 4 protagonists in a new horror film. Players will fight a new array of zombie enemies across a ravaged beach town where a government science experiment has transformed the residents into flesh-devouring zombies and introduced a new biological menace into the city.
Elvira will offer them gameplay tips, help and side quests with her unique Elvira style. Returning to the Zombie experience is Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Austin Powers) as “the Scientist;” Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad) as “the Rebel;” Jay Pharoah (White Famous, Saturday Night Live) as “the Soldier;” and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside Amy Schumer) as “the School Girl.”
The DLC Map Pack, title “Absolution”, will feature 4 new unique maps for Multiplayer, Activision provided the following list to describe the upcoming pack:
- Bermuda – A shantytown created around the remnants of a crashed ship, Bermuda allows players to duck, dive, and wall ride from the fish market to the lighthouse in this small to medium-sized map that’s been water-wasted and sandblasted.
- Permafrost – Set within the chill of a frozen city skyline, Permafrost lets players stick to the ground and pick their plan of attack in one of three main lanes. They will traverse the map, moving from street side to train station, and hobo village to wrecked theater house in this small, tight-quarters map.
- Fore – In Fore, the only thing miniature about this large map is the golf courses players will be fighting in. Fore features great visual variety as players swing around the sights and sounds of areas that brandish magical forests, giant creamsicles, and elevated castle walls.
- Ember – Located near an old town castle, Ember is a remake of the Modern Warfare 3 classic map Resistance, featuring old world aesthetics retrofitted with modern technology. The surroundings include lava, gallows and a torture room, where players will want to stick close to their teammates.
“Absolution” will launch on July 18th for PS4 owners first, and will follow shortly after for Xbox One and PC.
