We all knew it was coming and now we have the reveal of Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare's new zombie mode that will be coming with the game when it launches on November 4th. This can't be a huge surprise as Activision has had the mode added into all of its versions of this IP and Infinity Ward is bringing it yet again. As seems to be the trend as of late it looks like Call Of Duty is getting an 80's theme to it all because it is coming back and staying yet again. Here we go with our first look at Zombies In Spaceland and just what we'll be getting.
Just as all of the other Zombies mode we have a nice little story about four different people who have been brought together and thrust into the messed up scenario. Here we have four actors who have been invited to a location for a job and then forced to stereotypical roles from the 80's all to live out some madman's zombie film. That madman just happens to be voiced by Paul Reuben of Pee-wee fame. So we can all expect some fun and humor in Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Zombies mode. Especially given the rest of the cast has been tapped from the comedian pool as well.
Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare — Zombies In Spaceland
Zombies in Spaceland tells the story of four aspiring actors who come upon a mysterious movie theater for an audition. They’ve been invited by director Willard Wyler, portrayed with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Gotham), who was once the shining star of the horror genre. Unbeknownst to the actors, they will be transformed into characters and transported straight into Wyler’s film to fight against waves of zombies in a space-themed amusement park set in the ‘80s.
Fans play as one of four ‘80s archetypes: the jock, the nerd, the valley girl and the rapper. The characters are voiced by a seasoned cast of comedic actors, including Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Austin Powers), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad), Jay Pharoah (Saturday Night Live, Ride Along) and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside Amy Schumer). Additionally, players will 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.
I am still a bit torn on my excitement for this here as the 80's does seem a bit overdone to me but being in a full-on space-themed adventure park fighting what looks like smart zombies in Call Of Duty has caught my attention. I have a feeling that some of the more fun scenes and aspects we have here in the video will be just that; for the video. I've also never been able to get on a team that can make it all the way through a Zombies story in any of its form so it will be at least a flashy and fun way to kill a whole lot more of the undead…at least…?
Are you jazzed up for Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare to bring us more of the 80's with this mode? Do you think that this voice cast and a less serious take on the mode will pay off? Are you curious why the likenesses of the characters have been limited to what looks to be only one character? Let us know your thoughts and feel free to discuss in the comments below.
