Now that players have had some time to soak in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's content, it's time to look ahead at what's to come for Infinity Ward's latest entry. Sabotage is the first DLC Map Pack for the game, and it will be launching on PlayStation 4 on January 31st, 2017. The Pack will bring four new maps and a new 90's themed zombie co-op mode called Rave in the Redwoods.
Here are the official descriptions for the new maps per an official press release:
- Noir – A dark, grimy city map inspired by futuristic Brooklyn at night, Noir is a classic three-lane map set against a backdrop of a dystopian future, filled with cafes and parks surrounding a brutal downtown warzone.
- Neon – A virtual training center designed for urban warfare, Neon is a unique, digitized battle arena where cars and other structures spawn out of thin air, and enemies dissolve into hundreds of pixels when defeated. Middle lane sightlines will cater to long-range players while the outsides of the map allow for quick counter-attacks in close-quarter action.
- Renaissance – Set in Northern Italy, Renaissance pits players against each other on the narrow streets of Venice surrounded by classic architecture and buildings that promote continuous action through the canals and neighborhoods of this iconic city.
- Dominion – A re-imagining of the classic Afghan map from Modern Warfare 2, now set on Mars, Dominion retains all the memorable landmarks and gameplay of the original, anchored by the crashed ship in the center, with a few enhancements designed to take advantage of the new movement system.
Rave in the Redwoods on the other hand easily packs the most personality of anything coming in the Sabotage DLC. It's inspired by the slasher flicks of the 1990's where the four heroes from the Zombies in Spaceland co-op mode have found themselves in the middle of a high school rave thrown in the midst of a forest. You realize that Willard Wyler, the movie director villain has trapped you in this new time and it is up to you to escape as you battle the undead.
According to Activision, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is currently the top grossing console game of 2016 despite physical sales being down nearly 50% in the United States compared to last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
