SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Activision and Infinity Ward have released the first details for Call
of Duty: Infinite Warfare Continuum, the second DLC Map Pack for
2016's No. 1 top-selling console video game in the U.S. (excluding
hardware bundle sales), Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
Featuring four diverse, new multiplayer maps, and a new zombies co-op
experience called Shaolin Shuffle, set in a ‘70s era New York
disco-zombie fright fest, Continuum is scheduled for release
April 18, first on the PlayStation® Network for the
PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, with other platforms to

"We couldn't be more excited to deliver a new co-op zombies chapter with Shaolin
Shuffle, with an all-new setting and story, that continues the wild
and increasingly twisted narrative," said Dave Stohl, Studio Head of
Infinity Ward. "For multiplayer, we're creating a diverse set of maps
from Turista and Scrap, to Archive, that cater to
various play styles in cool ways and allow fans to experiment with
different rigs and loadouts. And then there's Rust, one of our
all-time favorite maps from Modern Warfare® 2, re-imagined and
now called Excess to complete the multiplayer package."
Shaolin Shuffle, the next thrilling chapter of the Call of
Duty: Infinite Warfare zombies experience, features the return
of Willard Wyler, the mysterious movie director villain portrayed with
voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee's Big Holiday, Gotham). This
time, Wyler has trapped the four protagonists inside a new horror film,
set in the unforgettable 1970s. Players will face all-new zombie enemies
across a variety of disco-era New York locations, including subways,
flashy nightclubs and a martial arts dojo headed up by the "Shaolin
Sister," played with voice and likeness by Pam Grier (Jackie Brown, Foxy
Brown). In addition to hallmark Call of Duty action, Shaolin
Shuffle introduces four unlockable kung fu fighting styles, each
with its own set of unique combat moves. Seth Green (Robot Chicken,
Austin Powers) as "the Punk Rocker;" Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide
Squad) as "the Sleazebag;" Jay Pharoah (Saturday Night Live, Ride Along)
as "the Street Poet;" and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside
Amy Schumer) as "the Disco Chick," all return from the ongoing story in
this all-new experience.
In addition to the Shaolin Shuffle zombies content, Continuum
will also include four new multiplayer maps:
Turista - A plush spa and resort, Turista is nestled in the middle of
a giant skeleton of an ancient creature. With sniper spots scattered
across a majestic, central waterfall, Turista also boasts tight
interiors for fans of close-quartered combat and a three-lane design
that caters to a variety of play styles.
Scrap - Set in an abandoned junkyard on the Moon, Scrap features a
combination of extended sightlines and tactical pathways that reward
players who engage in both long and short range combat.
Archive - Fast, frenetic engagements set the pace in Archive, a
post-futurist art gallery where tight engagements contrast with open
exterior battlegrounds in this wide three-lane style map.
Excess - Perched atop a gilded penthouse in a sprawling future
metropolis, Excess is a small, circular map re-imagined from the
classic Modern Warfare 2 map, Rust, that retains the intense,
fast-paced combat from the original.
