There's a whole lot of action ahead with the forthcoming Call of Duty: WWII, set to premiere on November 3rd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Before we get to that point, though, there's still more to be revealed for 2016's release, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – and now we know when it's coming.
Activision has announced that Retribution, the latest map pack for the game, will be released on September 12th for PlayStation 4, with a later release to follow on Xbox One and PC. The pack will introduce four new maps into the fold, as well as an all-new Zombies adventure that ties in with previously released entries, once again introducing enigmatic movie director Willard Wyler.
"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."
Here's the breakdown of the four multiplayer maps, which you can also see in the attached gallery:
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.
And there's also The Beast From Beyond Zombies mode, and the full description can be found below:
"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."
The map pack will go for $14.99, or you can purchase it as part of the Season Pass for the game.
