Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare received its first DLC drop earlier this year, and it included some multiplayer maps and stuff. But more importantly, it introduced a brand new, ultra ’90s zombies experience that was absolutely bonkers. Well, it looks like we’re in for more of the same with the game’s second expansion titled Continuum.
The pack will come with four additional maps, including a reimagining of one of my all-time favourites, as well as a zombies map even more ludicrous than all that came before. More info and a trailer below.
Activision detailed all of the stuff included in the expansion over on its official blog, starting with the new maps which will feature “unique and varied environments to provide a boost to your multiplayer experience.”
“Engage in fast-paced, frenetic engagements throughout the contemporary setting of a post-futurist art gallery in Archive. Tight close quarter encounters contrast with open exterior battlegrounds in this wide 3 lane style map.”
“Perched atop a gilded penthouse in a sprawling future metropolis, Excess is an intense small, circular map re-imagined from the classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map, Rust.”
“Get the drop on enemies from long sightlines or tactical pathways in Scrap, mankind’s final dumping ground on the Moon. You’ll need to keep moving and act fast to survive.”
“Turista is a plush spa and resort for the future elite. With sniper perches across a majestic, central waterfall, and tight corners in the hotel for close quarters combat aficionados, the linear three-lane map allows a variety of playstyles.”
Next to be detailed is the new zombies experience titled Shaolin Shuffle. The map will feature the cast from the previous two adventures, only this time they’ll be transported to “New York City in the 1970s, only to discover that the inhabitants are walking corpses backed by a disco-tastic soundtrack, complete with special kung fu combat moves which are unique to Shaolin Shuffle.”
To help even the odds, players will be able to team up with Pam Grier, who has “patiently honed her martial arts skills and is on a mission to break free of Willard’s eternal grasp.” More details about the returning cast members and their new 70s archetypes can be found here. But first, have a spectacularly silly trailer.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Continuum will hit PS4 first on 18 April, with “other platforms to follow,” which usually means around a month later. Standalone pricing has not been revealed, but it’ll likely be the same as the game’s Sabotage DLC which currently goes for R229.
