The latest downloadable content for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – titled “Retribution” – is set to launch for the PlayStation 4 on September 12. The DLC is expected to feature four new multiplayer maps, as well “The Beast From Beyond”, the last chapter in the five-part zombie experience for Infinite Warfare.
Thanks to the deal between Sony and Activision, the Retribution DLC will launch first on PS4. There is no current timetable for its release on Xbox One or PC, but players can expect it about a month or so after.
More on the maps, including their names and descriptions of them, can be found below:
• Carnage – A post-apocalyptic race track along the California coast, Carnage features long sight lines and environmental hazards including a fire trap players can activate on command to roast their enemies.
• Heartland – In Heartland, teams will go head-to-head in a simulation of small town America that is a re-imagining of the classic Call of Duty: Ghosts map, Warhawk. Players can pop into the local ice cream shop for a treat, and then take out enemies down the street with a Black Hole Generator.
• Altitude – Set in a high-end, sky high shopping mall located on the edges of the universe, Altitude pushes teams around a chaotic center where quick flank routes are key to victory. Additional features include floating lush waterfalls that border the map.
• Depot 22 – Depot 22 is a watering hole at the end of civilization that focuses on mid-ranged encounters waged in a medium-sized, three-lane map. Players can battle in the cantina for close-quarter combat or engage with enemies wall-running off of a moving train.
According to Activision, “The Beast From Beyond” features the return of Willard Wyler, and will bring about new weapons and traps. More info on that below:
The Beast from Beyond, the final chapter of the five-part Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare zombies experience, features the return of Willard Wyler, the enigmatic movie director villain portrayed with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Gotham). Wyler once again has trapped the four protagonists inside an all-new horror film, now set in a desolate military station on a distant ice planet. As players begin to discover more and more infected crew members, they’ll need to battle hordes of the undead to uncover the truth and escape Wyler’s films once and for all. The Beast from Beyond also features new weapons, traps and more, in addition to the hallmark Call of Duty action, with Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Austin Powers) as “Poindexter;” Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad) as “AJ;” Jay Pharoah (White Famous, Saturday Night Live) as “Andre;” and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside Amy Schumer) as “Sally,” all making a return from the ongoing story.
“Retribution” will launch on September 12 for PS4 users, and sometime after for Xbox One and PC users.
