Santa Monica, California - Activision and Infinity Ward have released the first details of the second DLC pack for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare - Continuum. Continuum is scheduled for release on April 18, and the additional content will first be available via PlayStation Network for PlayStation 4 owners, with other platforms to follow.

Thrill co-op fans can already see Shaolin Shuffle in action on Call of Duty's official YouTube channel.

"I can't imagine we could be any more excited than we are right now, ahead of the release of Shaolin Shuffle, the next chapter of our co-op zombie story, set in a new setting and continuing an increasingly wacky and offbeat tale," said Dave Stohl, head of Infinity Ward. "For multiplayer, we've created a diverse set of maps, from Turista and Scrap to Archive, to address the needs and preferences of different players with different approaches to the game. We want to give them the opportunity to explore many different gameplay styles, equipment sets and other ways to express their temperament through the game. We also have Rust, one of the fan favorite maps from Modern Warfare 2, built from the ground up under a new title - Excess - to round out this rich package."

Shaolin Shuffle is another shockingly fun and entertainingly harrowing chapter in the Zombie saga in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. In it, Willard Wyler, the mysterious and sinister director, returns. The role of the criminal genius of cinema is played as usual by Paul Reubens (known from the film series about Pee-wee Herman). Wyler once again pulls the four familiar characters into the middle of another bizarre horror movie, this time set in the unforgettable 70's. The players will face off against a horde of the undead roaming New York City of the disco era. They visit the New York subway and glitzy nightclubs to reach the focal point of their mission - a martial arts dojo run by a "Shaolin Sister" voiced and voiced by black movie legend Pam Grier (Jackie Brown in Quentin Tarantino's film). In addition to the gameplay model well known from Call of Duty, Shaolin Shuffle introduces four unique hand-to-hand combat styles to the game, each with their own set of punches and tricks taken from the classics of Kung-Fu films. These will be taught by four characters available to players. In these roles - again - Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Austin Powers) this time as "Punk Rocker," Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad) as "Shuja," Jay Pharoah (Saturday Night Live, Ride Along) as "Poet" and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside Amy Schumer) as "Disco Cunt." All will be thrown once again into new realities for a new adventure. Or rather, just in general: survive.

In addition to the Zombie scenario, Shaolin Shuffle, the Continuum DLC also includes the following multiplayer competitive maps:

  • The Tourist, an exclusive spa resort picturesquely located in the middle of a giant antediluvian creature skeleton. As well as sniper nests scattered across a majestic waterfall in the central area, Turista also features cramped interiors that will appeal to close quarters combat enthusiasts. The map's three-line layout allows for a wide variety of play styles.Scrap - Set on an abandoned lunar junkyard, this map's combination of tactical paths and long-distance shooting will satisfy both ranged and close-quarters combat enthusiasts.Archive - A map where sudden and unexpected skirmishes dictate the fast-paced action in a post-futuristic art gallery. One moment you're face to face with an enemy, the next you're aiming at them from a great distance across an open courtyard. A wide, three-line board.Excess - Modern Warfare 2 players will flawlessly recognize the layout of one of their favorite maps - Rust - in this installment set on the roof of a skyscraper in a bustling metropolis, with the action centered around a small apartment, retaining the intensity of the original.

The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Sabotage DLC set is available at the best price through the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Season Pass, which can be purchased on its own or as part of the Legacy Pro or Digital Deluxe editions. The Season Pass guarantees discounted access to all four Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare map sets to be released in 2017, and its holders will also receive 10 rare inventory drops upon purchase, as well as 1,000 units of Scrap to create new prototype weapons.
