In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Infinity Ward communications director Eric Monacelli reveals the first DLC expansion called Sabotage for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
So far, it’s been a roller coaster year for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Things didn’t start off that great, as the debut trailer got hammered by the community, making it one of the most disliked videos on YouTube this year. Even with all of the pre- launch negativity, though, the game eventually got enough fans to come around and has proven to be another success story for Activision and Infinity Ward. Not only did the game lead all downloads on the PlayStation 4 for the month of November, but also it is in line to become to top grossing console game in the US for 2016. Looking to capitalize on those numbers, the first downloadable content pack has finally been revealed and dated.
The first content expansion for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is known as Sabotage, and it follows the same pattern established by past DLC packs, introducing four new multiplayer maps and a brand new zombie mode experience. A detailed post on the PlayStation Blog reveals that the four multiplayer maps are:
- Noir is a dark city based map, inspired by a futuristic Brooklyn at night. Players will be fighting among plenty of cafe and parks with a brutal warzone erupting in the center.
- Neon is a dynamic map, acting as a digitized virtual training room of sorts. During matches on this map, objects and structures will materialize out of thin air and enemies dissolve into hundreds of pixels when killed.
- Renaissance takes players to Venice, Italy, to fight among the canals and the sprawling architecture.
- Dominion is a fresh take on the classic Modern Warfare 2 map known as Afghan. This new map is set on Mars, enhanced to support the new movement system of Infinite Warfare, though still sporting the familiar layout.
Finally, the new zombie experience is called Rave in the Redwoods and breaks away from the ’80s style presented in the current zombie mode. For this first zombie expansion, the team at Infinity Ward is crafting a new experience set within a’ 90s slasher flick. Fans of Jason and the Friday the 13th film franchise will find a lot to enjoy here, as the new map takes place in a creepy summer camp that plays host to a party. Willard Wyler returns once more to create the biggest horror film of his career with the players along for the ride as his unwilling guest stars.
As expected, the Sabotage DLC launches first for PlayStation 4 players on January 31, 2017, and should follow for Xbox One and PC players. Activision hasn’t not announced when that might be, but past DLC releases have usually hit about a month after the exclusive platform.
