Activision and Infinity Ward announced that the next entry in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare zombies escapades will launch on January 31st, 2017 at the end of the month.
PS4 gamers will gain access to the Rave in the Redwoods map first as part of the Sabotage DLC pack. If you bought the Season Pass you’ll gain access to the new map featuring a guest star appearance from director and actor, Kevin Smith. He mentioned in the press release…
“I told my buddy Jason (Mewes) I was going to be in Call of Duty and he wept tears of joy,” […] “I used to play Pitfall just because I wanted to be that thin little man jumping over crocodiles, something I could never be in the real world, so ever since I was a little kid I always dreamed of being in a video game.”
Smith isn’t really that big into Call of Duty, but it’s interesting because he hosted the IMDB discussion panel with the cast and creators of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare last year during the summer.
They released a trailer for the new map that you can check out below.
Taking cues from 1980’s slasher flicks? That’s what it looks like. It reminds me of Dead by Daylight and the upcoming Friday The 13th The Game.
Sasheer Zamata, Jay Pharoah, Seth Green and Ike Barinholtz star as the four young would-be survivors trapped in the supernatural machinations of has-been movie director Willard Wyler.
The first zombies map for Infinite Warfare had a cool theme, set within a 1980’s amusement park, but it felt underused, under-developed and lacking a lot of spice and hidden secrets that Treyarch has managed to perfect with their Call of Duty outings.
This new map looks like another cash-in on the zombies theme, but maybe there are some Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare fans out there who can’t wait to play the new map.
I’m just curious at what point will people eventually get tired of a concept that feels more rehashed than 1980s TV shows being rebooted as raunchy comedies by Hollywood?
The comment section is full of Treyarch fanboys, and I can’t really blame them. They knocked it out of the park back in 2015 with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. That game still sticks with me to this day… what a head trip.
Anyway, you can look for the Rave in the Redwoods map to go live with the Sabotage DLC, which also includes the Dominion map based on the classic Afghan map from Modern Warfare 2; the Renaissance map set in Northern Italy; the Noir map inspired by a futuristic midnight set within Brooklyn; and the Neon map, which is a neon urban warfare virtual training center.
Following the January 31st release on PS4, the other platforms will follow thereafter.
