With Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare having topped the the charts as the best selling game of 2016, it’s safe to say that there are currently loads of players waiting on the first-person shooter’s initial round of post-launch content. Thankfully, the first map pack known as the Sabotage DLC is almost available, and now publisher Activision and developer Infinity Ward have provided more details on the Zombies portion of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare expansion, which has been dubbed Rave in the Redwoods.
As seen below in the trailer posted on YouTube, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s Rave in the Redwoods is going to be the new Zombies map coming after the base game’s initial offering of Zombies in Spaceland, and the fresh content is centered around a forest environment that has been given a ’90s rave club makeover. Furthermore, it features director and actor Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma) as himself, alongside the four stars from Zombies in Spaceland, including Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad), Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Austin Powers), Jay Pharoah (White Famous, Saturday Night Live), and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside Amy Schumer).
In addition to the aforementioned cast members in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s Zombies DLC Rave in the Redwoods, Willard Wyler, the mysterious movie director villain played by Paul Reubens returns, with the bad guy capturing Kevin Smith to put him in yet another of the filmmaker’s horror flicks. Although Smith has been left for dead in the movie, he will help players attempt to escape the campgrounds where zombie ravers have taken over and turned the area into a techno-fueled terror.
Not only will Rave in the Redwoods be included in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s Sabotage DLC, but also there will be four fresh multiplayer maps making their way into the game, and they are known as Noir, Neon, Renaissance, and Dominion. As it happens, the last map mentioned is a remade version of the well-known Modern Warfare 2 level Afghan.
Despite Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s successes and the potential triumphs to be had with its forthcoming Sabotage DLC and Zombies pack in Rave in the Redwoods, physical sales of the game were down by 50% when compared with the franchise’s 2015 figures. Nevertheless, Infinity Ward’s most recent entry in the first-person shooter series still holds major clout over its competition simply due to the Call of Duty brand.
Beyond the impending launch of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s Sabotage DLC, Activision and Infinity Ward still have more expansion packs planned for the title. With this being the case, it’s highly likely that the publisher and developer will continue to generate plenty of money thanks to Infinite Warfare – albeit, perhaps not as much as it once could have with the franchise. Of course, should the next proper installment of the series take the route of Battlefield 1 by delving back into the past, as rumors speculate a new title set in the Vietnam era, there’s a chance for Call of Duty sales to spike once more.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s Sabotage DLC is set to launch on January 31, 2017 for PlayStation 4 first, with PC and Xbox One platforms to follow.
