The first details for the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Absolution DLC have emerged, and it includes the re-emergence of a classic character for its zombie experience in Elvira. Titled “Attack of the Radiactive Thing“, the zombie map will be centered around a 1950’s beach town after an experiment has gone incredibly wrong. So, basically it’s your typical B-list movie plot. There will also be four new maps included for use in standard multi-player.
Studio Head of Infinity Ward Dave Stohl commented on the DLC by saying:
“Our team couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce another wild, twisted zombies experience in Attack of the Radioactive Thing!, which continues the story and adds some awesome new gameplay. For our multiplayer fans, we’re delivering four diverse maps that reward the different gameplay styles our community has embraced since the game launched last year. We can’t wait.”
Paul Reubens (Pee-Wee Herman) plays the main villain of the zombie experience Willard Wyler. He traps the four players inside the movie experience, and they must work their way out utilizing tips and hints from Elvira. The four new maps included in the DLC are Bermuda, Permafrost, Fore and Ember with each one detailed below.
- Bermuda – A shantytown created around the remnants of a crashed ship, Bermuda allows players to duck, dive, and wall ride from the fish market to the lighthouse in this small to medium sized map that’s been water-wasted and sandblasted.
- Permafrost – Set within the chill of a frozen city skyline, Permafrost lets players stick to the ground and pick their plan of attack in one of three main lanes. They will traverse the map, moving from street side to train station, and hobo village to wrecked theater house in this small, tight-quarters map.
- Fore – In Fore, the only thing miniature about this large map is the golf courses players will be fighting in. Fore features great visual variety as players swing around the sights and sounds of areas that brandish magical forests, giant creamsicles, and elevated castle walls.
- Ember – Located near an old town castle, Ember is a remake of the Modern Warfare 3 classic map Resistance, featuring old world aesthetics retrofitted with modern technology. The surroundings include lava, gallows and a torture room, where players will want to stick close to their teammates.
The Absolution DLC will be available next week on PS4, but no release date is available for the Xbox One launch yet. There is no platform exclusive content for the DLC, so you will get everything above regardless of platform.
