Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Crazy New Zombies Mode Features These Celebrities
The tradition continues with Infinite Warfare.
Activision has yet again brought on celebrities for Call of Duty game's Zombies mode.
The company announced today that David Hasselhoff (Baywatch) and Paul Reubens (Pee-Wee Herman, Blow) will appear in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's '80s-inspired Zombies in Spaceland mode. Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Austin Powers) and Ike Barinholtz (Suicide Squad, Neighbors), as well as Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharoah and Sasheer Zamata will also show up.
Reubens provides the voice and likeness for fictional movie director Willard Wyler, who invites four aspiring actors--played by the real-life actors mentioned above (but not Hasselhoff or Reubens)--to his theater for an audition. The actors have no idea that they're about to be transformed into four '80s archetypes--the jock, the nerd, the valley girl, and the rapper--and then are forced to fight waves of zombies in an '80s space-themed amusement park.
Hasselhoff plays an "enigmatic DJ" in the theme park, who will help the four actors survive. Check out Zombies in Spaceland's announcement trailer to get a closer look.
Activision will share more details about Zombies in Spaceland tomorrow, August 17, at 9 AM PT through a livestream hosted by Pharoah. This video will be broadcast on the Call of Duty Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook pages.
Zombies in Spaceland is included with Infinite Warfare. Everyone who preorders any version of Infinite Warfare gets the Zombies in Spaceland Pack, which comes with zombie-themed in-game items such as a weapon camo and reticle, as well as an animated zombies calling card and the Fate & Fortune card pack, though it's not clear what that is. Peorders also come with a new version of Modern Warfare 2's Terminal map.
People who attend Call of Duty XP this year in Los Angeles can play Zombies in Spaceland. The show is held September 2-4 and you can get tickets here.
Infinite Warfare launches on November 4 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Activision is also releasing a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, but the only way to get it is to preorder a premium version of Infinite Warfare.
