Activision and Infinity Ward released the first details for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Continuum, the second map pack for 2016’s top-selling console game. The pack features many diverse, new multiplayer maps, and a new zombies co-op experience called Shaolin Shuffle set in a ‘70s era New York disco-zombie fright fest. Continuum is scheduled for release sometime in May on Xbox One and PC.
Shaolin Shuffle, the next thrilling chapter of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare zombies experience, features the return of Willard Wyler, the mysterious movie director villain portrayed with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens. This time, Wyler has trapped the protagonists inside a new horror film, set in the unforgettable 1970s. Players will face all-new zombie enemies across a variety of disco-era New York locations, including subways, flashy nightclubs and a martial arts dojo headed up by the Shaolin Sister, played with voice and likeness by Pam Grier. In addition to hallmark Call of Duty action, Shaolin Shuffle introduces unlockable Kung Fu fighting styles, each with their own set of unique combat moves. Seth Green, Ike Barinholtz, Jay Pharoah and Sasheer Zamata all return from the ongoing story.
The maps included in Continuum are as follows:
- Archive: Fast, frenetic engagements set the pace in Archive, a post-futurist art gallery where tight engagements contrast with open exterior battlegrounds in this wide three-lane style map.
- Excess: Perched atop a gilded penthouse in a sprawling future metropolis, Excess is a small, circular map reimagined from the classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map, Rust.
- Scrap: Set in an abandoned junkyard on the Moon, Scrap features a combination of extended sight lines and tactical pathways that reward players.
- Turista: A plush spa and resort, Turista is nestled in the middle of a giant skeleton of an ancient creature.
One of the reasons why Call of Duty is so successful is because it keeps on delivering phenomenal maps after launch. For example, Turista sounds like a blast to play with vistas which you want to stop and gaze at. Hopefully the rumors of the Call of Duty: WWII game are true because that setting and aggressive post-launch support is a winning combination.
