"We're excited to introduce a new chapter to our zombies experience,
taking players into a spooky 1990s summer camp straight out of the
horror films of the decade," said Dave Stohl, Studio Head of Infinity
Ward. "We're also delivering four new, diverse multiplayer maps,
including a remake of the Modern Warfare® 2 classic, Afghan.
There's a tremendous variety of new content that we think every player
Rave in the Redwoods, the next thrilling chapter of the Call
of Duty: Infinite Warfare zombies experience, continues the macabre
narrative while transporting players into a new decade: the 1990s.
Willard Wyler, the enigmatic movie director villain, returns and has
trapped the protagonists inside another one of his twisted horror films.
The four playable characters from the original story also return, but
with fresh, over-the-top roles, as they learn more about Wyler's evil
plot while fighting all-new varieties of the undead in an abandoned,
lakeside summer camp where zombie ravers have taken over and turned the
grounds into a techno-fueled illusion. Rave in the Redwoods is a
tense, spooky thrill ride with shocking twists, surprises, and a slew of
new Easter eggs for players to discover.
In addition to the Rave in the Redwoods zombies content, Sabotage
will also include four new multiplayer maps:
Noir - A dark, grimy city map inspired by futuristic Brooklyn at
night, Noir is a classic three-lane map set against a backdrop of a
dystopian future, filled with cafes and parks surrounding a brutal
Neon - A virtual training center designed for urban warfare, Neon is a
unique, digitized battle arena where cars and other structures spawn
out of thin air and enemies dissolve into hundreds of pixels when
defeated. Middle lane sightlines will cater to long-range players
while the outsides of the map allow for quick counter-attacks in
Renaissance - Set in Northern Italy, Renaissance pits players against
each other on the narrow streets of Venice surrounded by classic
architecture and buildings that promote continuous action through the
canals and neighborhoods of this iconic city.
Dominion - A re-imagining of the classic Afghan map from Modern
Warfare 2, now set on Mars, Dominion retains all the memorable
landmarks and gameplay of the original, anchored by the crashed ship
in the center, with a few enhancements designed to take advantage of
the new movement system.
