Here’s a multiplayer reveal trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, showing off the next installment in the shooter series. The description mentions that this is true to the roots of the franchise, an interesting perspective, as the science fiction action doesn’t really resemble the World War II setting of the first three Call of Duty games. They also promise beta access for preorders, but this only applies to consoles, as the once PC-exclusive series covers the topic in five terse words: “Beta not available on PC.” Here’s word:

We’re talking epic, large scale, battles and massive set pieces that are true to the franchise’s roots. Infinite Warfare Multiplayer is filled with new ideas, but it’s first and foremost a great Call of Duty experience.

Call of Duty®: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer combines a fluid momentum-based movement system, player-focused map design, and deeper levels of combat customization to create an intense gameplay experience where every second counts.

Infinite Warfare Multiplayer introduces an all-new combat rig system, hundreds of weapons, never-before-seen high-tech equipment, and unique prototype weapon crafting to fuse immersive, frenetic action with innovative new gameplay experiences at every turn.

call-of-duty-infinite-warfareZombies dudes and dudettes rejoice. Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. and Infinity Ward today unveiled ‘Zombies in Spaceland,’ the undead survival co-op mode launching on November 4 with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Immersing players in an all-new 1980s setting with a most excellent soundtrack from the era, Zombies in Spaceland transports fans into an original, action-packed storyline where they’ll fight as one of four classic ‘80s characters and battle the living dead in a space-themed amusement park full of deadly zombies, fun attractions and much more.

Watch the Zombies in Spaceland reveal trailer is live here.

“Call of Duty and zombies in particular has such an incredible history with passionate fans, which inspired us to take all the co-op action that has made the series so great and fuse it with one of our favourite decades in pop culture: the ’80s,” said Brian Bright, Project Director at Infinity Ward. “Zombies in Spaceland is an all-new zombies experience where day-glow meets fright nights. It’s accessible for new players, but also has a deep layer of progression, brimming with easter eggs and various game features that will be a blast for hardcore zombies fans. We can’t wait for fans to go hands-on this fall.”

Zombies in Spaceland tells the story of four aspiring actors who come upon a mysterious movie theatre 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.

Fans can learn more about Zombies in Spaceland by tuning in tomorrow, 17th August at 4pm BST on Twitch, on YouTube and on Facebook for a special reveal stream hosted by actor Jay Pharoah as he speaks with the game developers in more detail.

Fans who pre-order any edition of the game will receive the totally rad “Zombies in Spaceland Pack” which consists of bonus in-game digital items, including a unique zombies weapon camo, zombies weapon reticle, animated zombies calling card and Fate & Fortune card pack. They’ll also receive the reimagined, fan-favourite Terminal bonus multiplayer map.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will likely bring to mind the unknowing silence and darkness of space for future players. But the people behind the game had another environment in mind when creating this science-future take on the war shooter.

“Space is like a deep black ocean,” Infinite Warfare narrative director Taylor Kurosaki said in an interview with Polygon. “So we are taking a lot of information from and drawing a lot of metaphors with the current naval technology.”

The game, officially announced this morning, has players taking on the role of the commander of what amounts to an aircraft carrier in space. In developing the title, Infinity Ward worked with a collection of former Naval officers and sailors including a two star admiral, Navy SEALs and a Naval bridge officer.

“We work with these guys daily,” said Jacob Minkoff, design director on the game. “The militarization of space is foremost on their mind as the next frontier.”

Infinite Warfare and the Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition, featuring Modern Warfare Remastered, will be available for PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, and PC.

“This year, we’re both honouring the heritage of Call of Duty while taking players to incredible new heights,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a bold, new vision from the studio that created the original Call of Duty and Modern Warfare, and an adventure on an insanely epic scale that only Call of Duty could deliver. And Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is one of the most beloved games of all-time, reborn for a new generation. We have lovingly remastered it with a whole new level of graphical fidelity and realism that wasn’t possible when the original was released. It’s going to be a great year for Call of Duty players.”
