Activision has unveiled the first official details of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Retribution developed by Infinity Ward, the fourth DLC Map Pack for 2016's No. 1 top-selling console video game in the U.S. (excluding hardware bundle sales), Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The map pack features four new, epic multiplayer maps, and the final Infinite Warfare zombies co-op experience called The Beast from Beyond, set in an abandoned military base on a distant ice planet. Retribution is scheduled to release September 12, first on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 4, with other platforms to follow.
While it is a map pack DLC, the Retribution DLC also comes with the final chapter of the zombies game mode. So at least there's that.
"Our team has had so much fun this year creating content for the Infinite Warfare community," said Dave Stohl, Studio Head of Infinity Ward. "So with Retribution, it's the culmination of our thrilling zombies storyline, where players will head to a new setting with tons of surprises, and find out what evil force has been pulling the strings all along. For multiplayer fans, we're delivering four new maps that really showcase combat rig abilities and great gameplay. September 12 can't come soon enough."
The Beast from Beyond, the final chapter of the five-part Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare zombies experience, features the return of Willard Wyler, the enigmatic movie director villain portrayed with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee's Big Holiday, Gotham). Wyler once again has trapped the four protagonists inside an all-new horror film, now set in a desolate military station on a distant ice planet. As players begin to discover more and more infected crew members, they'll need to battle hordes of the undead to uncover the truth and escape Wyler's films once and for all. The Beast from Beyond also features new weapons, traps and more, in addition to the hallmark Call of Duty action, with Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Austin Powers) as "Poindexter;" Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad) as "AJ;" Jay Pharoah (White Famous, Saturday Night Live) as "Andre;" and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside Amy Schumer) as "Sally," all making a return from the ongoing story.
In addition to The Beast from Beyond, Retribution will also include four new multiplayer maps:
- Carnage – A post-apocalyptic race track along the California coast, Carnage features long sightlines and environmental hazards including a fire trap players can activate on command to roast their enemies.
- Heartland – In Heartland, teams will go head-to-head in a simulation of small town America that is a re-imagining of the classic Call of Duty: Ghosts map, Warhawk. Players can pop into the local ice cream shop for a treat, and then take out enemies down the street with a Black Hole Generator.\
- Altitude – Set in a high-end, sky high shopping mall located on the edges of the universe, Altitude pushes teams around a chaotic center where quick flank routes are key to victory. Additional features include floating lush waterfalls that border the map.
- Depot 22 – Depot 22 is a watering hole at the end of civilization that focuses on mid-ranged encounters waged in a medium-sized, three-lane map. Players can battle in the cantina for close-quarter combat or engage with enemies wall-running off of a moving train.
