In another first for Call of Duty, Infinite Warfare also features some pretty skookum bonus content through the Legacy and Digital Deluxe Editions, which include Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® Remastered.
Call of Duty continues to deliver something for all players across three modes of play in Infinite Warfare: a single-player story campaign that puts narrative front and center as players are taken on a classic journey with unforgettable characters; an all-new, 4-player cooperative zombies mode called ‘Zombies in Spaceland’ that takes players on a wild ride into a 1980’s amusement park; and a deep and rewarding multiplayer mode with robust customization options to suit different play styles, including an all-new weapons crafting system, full eSports integration and much more.
For the first time in franchise history, the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare story campaign unfolds seamlessly, creating one continuous and immersive experience, with more player agency and autonomy than ever before. In the campaign, fans play as Captain Reyes, a Tier 1 Special Operations soldier who takes the helm of the Retribution, one of Earth’s last remaining warships. Facing a ruthless insurgency led by Admiral Salen Kotch, portrayed by Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), and including the likes of MMA superstar Conor McGregor as Captain Bradley Fillion, Reyes must defend his home against this relentless enemy force. Along with the military, grounded combat that is hallmark to the series, the game allows players to pilot their own advanced jet fighter vehicle, known as the Jackal, in free-flying aerial battles both on Earth and in space.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare multiplayer allows gamers to customize their play like never before, giving players more ways to optimize their weapons and gear to their style of play. Infinite Warfare introduces the most advanced tools of war: combat rigs, high-tech equipment, and unique prototype weapons. It’s an incredibly deep experience where everything – including weapons, gear, lethals and tacticals – has been built around different types of play styles, and where fans have the power to combine them however they want. The mode features unparalleled customization, combined with the fluid, momentum-based movement system of Call of Duty®: Black Ops III evolved to custom-fit the new combat, to create a frenetic gameplay experience where every second counts.
The multiplayer mode also introduces more ways than ever to earn rewards and upgrade weapons. For the first time in Call of Duty, the game features an all-new crafting system that allows fans to use Salvage, an in-game currency earned during play, to create Prototype weapons that come with special cosmetic and functional benefits called “Gun Perks.” Additionally, players can level up and acquire specific weapons through Mission Teams. Fans can join four distinct Mission Teams, each with its own personality, challenges and team commander, to earn exclusive rewards unique to that team.
In addition, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare debuts an all-new cooperative mode called ‘Zombies in Spaceland.’ The mode transports players into an original, action-packed storyline where they’ll fight as one of four classic ‘80s archetypes to battle the living dead in a space-themed amusement park full of deadly zombies, fun attractions and much more. The mode can be played solo or with up to three other players, and is easy for new fans to jump in right away.
Zombies in Spaceland features an all-star cast, starting with the evil villain of the story named Willard Wyler. Wyler is portrayed with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Gotham). Unbeknownst to the actors auditioning for Wyler, they will be transformed into characters on screen and sent straight into Wyler’s film. The playable characters are voiced by Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Austin Powers) as “the nerd;” Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad) as “the jock;” Jay Pharoah (Saturday Night Live, Ride Along) as “the rapper;” and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside Amy Schumer) as “the valley girl.” Players will also encounter an enigmatic DJ in the theme park, portrayed with voice and likeness by David Hasselhoff (Knight Rider, Baywatch), who will be an invaluable resource as they try to get out of this horror movie alive.
