The team at Infinity Ward has pulled back the curtain on the first DLC bundle for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and it's packed full of the types of things that will give the FPS longer legs: More maps for your killstreaks to occur on and a whole new zombie mode for you to blast through.
Announced via the PlayStation YouTube channel, Infinite Warfare's first post-launch supply drop is called "Sabotage," and it includes a collection of four new maps and a cool new Zombies mode known as "Rave in the Redwoods."
In case you're curious why the latest Call of Duty content was first announced through PlayStation, it's because they've got a "first on PS4" promotion going this generation that brings all of the COD content to Sony's house about a month before everyone else. Speaking of which, the Sabotage DLC will hit that platform come Jan. 31 and about a month later on other platforms.
As for what the pack includes, it's your basic FPS fare. Whether you buy this pack solo or have the Season Pass, you'll net yourself a quartet of new multiplayer maps as well as that new Rave in the Redwoods cooperative mission that looks pretty-damn-rad.
First up on the new map list for Infinite Warfare is Dominion, a blast from the past that's been pulled kicking and screaming into the future. For folks who remember the Afghan map from Modern Warfare 2, you'll feel right at home with Dominion, as the team has taken the bones of that beloved classic and re-imagined the scene as it might exist on mars. There have been a few tweaks to accommodate the new gameplay but, otherwise, you're going to see some pretty familiar sights.
Next up is Noir, a map that looks like Infinity Ward's take on Bladerunner. This map is set in a gritty, neon version of Brooklyn that's full of bright lights and moody atmosphere.
Over to Neon, you'll find yourself in a virtual training center that's made to put players through the paces of urban warfare. This map has some pretty cool features, including environmental objects that spawn in during the match and, when you kill another player, they sort of derez rather than fall down. It's a neat touch.
Finally, there's Renaissance, a map set in Venice. This daytime map is big and full of impressive architecture, as well as plenty of verticality. There's a little something for all play styles here.
If you're more interested in what Infinite Warfare has to offer in the cooperative arena, though, there's Rave in the Redwoods. While the latest Call of Duty came loaded with the 1980's themed Zombies in Spaceland, this latest mission is set in a 90's slasher flick that takes place at a camp overrun by undead ravers.
