SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Call of Duty®: Infinite Warfare Sabotage, the first DLC
pack for the #1 top-selling video game on console in the U.S. for 2016
(excluding hardware bundle sales), is available now on PlayStation®
4, with other platforms to follow. Published by Activision and developed
by Infinity Ward, Sabotage delivers four new, epic
multiplayer maps, including the return of one of Call of Duty's
most famed maps from Modern Warfare®2, Afghan, re-imagined
for a new generation. The new DLC pack also features "Rave in the
Redwoods," as Kevin Smith joins the cast in the all-new, ‘90s inspired
"Sabotage brings four new multiplayer maps that feature distinct
gameplay for all different gameplay types," said Dave Stohl, Studio Head
of Infinity Ward. "Players will go head-to-head in places like Brooklyn,
northern Italy, and even on one of our favorite maps from the Modern
Warfare series, Afghan - now reimagined as Dominion.
The multiplayer package offers something for everyone. And then there's Rave
in the Redwoods, which turns the crazy up to 11, as players
experience a new zombies chapter that's all-1990s and all-zombies. It's
got great music and is a ton of fun."
Sabotage introduces the next thrilling chapter of the Call
of Duty: Infinite Warfare zombies experience with Rave in the
Redwoods, taking fans through a new storyline taking place in a ‘90s
abandoned lakeside summer camp full of wild twists and turns. Filmmaker,
actor and podcaster extraordinaire, Kevin Smith (Mallrats, Clerks),
joins the cast as himself. Just like the four protagonists, Kevin has
been catapulted straight into another twisted horror film helmed by
Willard Wyler, the enigmatic movie director villain played with voice
and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee's Big Holiday, Gotham).
Smith has been left for dead in the movie, but through a series of
creepy events helps players attempt to escape, where zombie ravers have
turned the campgrounds into a techno-fueled nightmare.
The four playable characters from the original story also return, but
with fresh, over-the-top roles, voiced by Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors,
Suicide Squad) as "the Hip Hop Wannabe"; Seth Green (Robot
Chicken, Austin Powers) as "the Kandi Raver"; Jay Pharoah (White
Famous, Saturday Night Live) as "the Grunge Rocker"; and
Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside Amy Schumer)
as "the Westside Gangsta."
In addition to the Rave in the Redwoods zombies content, Sabotage
also includes four new multiplayer maps:
Renaissance - Set in Northern Italy, Renaissance pits players against
each other on the narrow streets of Venice surrounded by classic
architecture and buildings. The map promotes continuous action through
the canals and neighborhoods of this iconic city.
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. Noir is filled with cafes and parks surrounding a
brutal downtown warzone.
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 cater to long-range players, while
the perimeter of the map allows for quick counter-attacks in
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, Dominion offers enhancements designed to fully engage
the new movement system of Infinite Warfare.
