The latest DLC pack for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is live on the PlayStation 4, adding the usual array of new weapons and gear. For you horror fans in the audience, the Zombies mode also receives a fresh chapter of content to blast through, starring the Mistress of the Dark herself, Elvira.
Played by Cassandra Peterson, Elvira hit the scene in the 80s as the gothic hostess of a late-night horror movie program. She went on to star in a couple movies of her own and make cameos all over the place. For horror fans, she's something of an icon.
That's why we're excited to learn that she's got a starring role in the latest DLC for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. For folks who have been playing through the Zombies campaign, you've visited everything from an undead amusement park to a summer camp in the woods and even the streets of New York. In each new chapter, the players get teleported to a new era in time, demonstrated by the type of horror film they find themselves trapped in. This time around, the Zombies chapter is called "Attack of the Radioactive Thing," and it harkens back to the 50s-era horror schlock Elvira would have been happy to show off on her television program.
In the new Zombies chapter, players will visit a sleepy beachside town that's overrun with zombies, as well as the titular Radioactive Thing that has been destroying the neighborhood. Elvira will offer some help along the way and will even be a playable character if you figure out how to unlock her. Of course, the Mistress of the Dark would not be complete without Cassandra Peterson reprising the role and giving the lines her trademark goth-meets-valley-girl flair.
As is the case with all Zombie modes, you'll also unlock new traps to use on the walking dead, all new weapons, gear and more. And of course another blast from our past, Paul Reubens (Pee-wee) will be back as the tortured director Willard Wyler, the man responsible for the films the players are trapped in. His overarching narrative will continue in the background as CoD players try to survive another horror flick.
But the new Zombies chapter will only be part of the fun in the Absolution DLC pack for Infinite Warfare. As always, a quartet of new maps will find their way into the multiplayer combat as well. These include Bermuda (a shantytown), Permafrost (a frozen city floating in the sky), Fore (a damn golf course) and Ember (A remake of Modern Warfare 3's Resistance set in a castle near lava).
Absolution is available for purchase solo or as part of the Infinite Warfare season pass now for the PlayStation 4. If you're gaming on the Xbox One, you can add it to your game in about a month.
