In case you’re a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare fan and don’t have this day marked in your calendar, Activision is here to remind you that the third map pack for the shooter is now out, and as usual, adds four new maps and then some.
Called “Absolution,” the new DLC adds the following maps:
- Bermuda – A shantytown created around the remnants of a crashed ship, Bermudaallows 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.
In addition to the new maps, a new chapter for Infinite Warfare’s zombie mode is included as well. Titled “Attack of the Radioactive Thing!,” there’s a slew of celebs making cameos, and a new story.
Attack of the Radioactive Thing!, the next action-packed chapter of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare zombies story, once again features the return of Willard Wyler, the merciless movie director villain portrayed with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Gotham). Wyler has trapped the four protagonists inside an all-new horror film in the style of the classic, Creature Feature movies from the 1950s. Players will fight against 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. Additionally, horror movie icon Elvira, played with voice and likeness by Cassandra Peterson (Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, Elvira’s Movie Macabre), will help players survive and give them gameplay tips and side quests with her unique Elvira style. New weapons, traps and more, will augment the hallmark Call of Duty zombies action fans know and love, with 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, Pizza Mind) as “the School Girl,” all making a return from the ongoing story in this all-new experience.
Same as in previous Call of Duty games this generation, the Absolution map pack is available first on the PlayStation 4, with other platforms (Xbox One and PC), getting it 30 days later.
