The new Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Sabotage DLC is now live to download and play on PS4, including four new maps and the Rave in the Redwoods Zombies
expansion.
“Sabotage brings four new multiplayer maps that feature distinct gameplay for all different gameplay types,” said Dave Stohl, Studio Head of Infinity Ward.“Players will go head-to-head in places like Brooklyn, northern Italy and even on one of our favourite maps from the Modern Warfare series, Afghan – now reimagined as Dominion. The multiplayer package offers something for everyone.

“And then there’s Rave in the Redwoods, which turns the crazy up to 11 as players experience a new zombies chapter that’s all-1990s and all-zombies. It’s got great music and is a ton of fun.”

The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare zombies has a new chapter in Rave in the Redwoods, taking fans through a new storyline set in a ‘90s abandoned lakeside summer camp.

Filmmaker, actor and podcaster extraordinaire, Kevin Smith (Mallrats, Clerks), joins the cast as himself. Just like the four protagonists, Kevin has been catapulted straight into another twisted horror film helmed by Willard Wyler, the enigmatic movie director villain played with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Gotham).

Smith has been left for dead in the movie, but through a series of events helps players attempt to escape, where zombie ravers have turned the campgrounds into a techno-fueled nightmare.

Nothing much is known about Bungie’s next big project on Xbox One and PS4, only that Destiny 2 will be launched in 2017.And while we have seen several Destiny 2 leaks in recent months, this latest might have given away a big plotline.Fans have reportedly found new Destiny Mega Blok sets that appear to list one major development in the Destiny 2 storyline.

One item, the Cabal Bruiser Battle Building Set, includes a listing in which it describes a big battle going on in The Tower hangar.

It reads: “Set the scene for a clash between a Bruiser’s crushing strength and a master swordsman’s skill. A legendary warrior faces his greatest contest yet in the Tower hangar.

“Wielding his Raze-Lighter, hero of the Crucible Lord Shaxx prepares to pit his blade against the furious cleavers of a Cabal Red Guard.”

It can’t be said to be the most solid sources of information regarding Destiny 2 news, however, it’s worth considering as the Cabal are rumoured to be one of the main protagonists of the new game.

The Destiny 2 release date is expected to be announced for this year but despite confirming that it is in development, Bungie hasn’t revealed any major details.
