You might have seen the news earlier today that the new Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare DLC is dropping later this month, but what’s all included in it? Well, along with four new multiplayer maps to frag your friends on, there’s also a new Zombies DLC pack called Shaolin Shuffle – and now the first trailer has dropped on the official Call of Duty YouTube page!
The trailer provides a good glimpse of what to expect from the DLC, with a narrator breaking down just what kind of trouble you’re in for. It appears that some zombies have begun overrunning New York City, including some weird ones with…afros? Nevertheless, it’s up to the crew that originally took part in the 90’s camp battle in the previously released DLC, Rave In the Redwoods, to transport back to the 70’s (that explains the afros after all), and do battle with them. Only this time…with ninja weapons! We’re talking about smacking a few zombies with the likes of nunchucks and power attacks that would make Bruce Lee proud.
Shaolin Shuffle definitely shows some great influence from the classic 70’s kung fu and Blaxploitation films, along with some enemies that will give you a run for your money, including what appears to be a fiery samurai warrior, as well as some kind of vermin-spewing dark lord that will prove to be a challenge.
Of course, it helps that Pam Grier, one of the best stars from the 70's era, is on board for the content. Yep, she's kicking ass in the trailer. Seth Green and Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharaoh are also part of the cast.
Here’s the official description of the trailer, straight from the YouTube page:
“After narrowly escaping the rave of their lives in the 1990s, our four actors find themselves transported to their newest nightmare in grimy '70s New York City. Will Andre, AJ, Poindexter and Sally survive Willard Wyler’s next masterpiece? Get ready to bring back the funk with the action-packed, kung-fu fright fest of Infinity Ward's latest zombies adventure, Shaolin Shuffle.”
The trailer looks like a lot of fun, and sets the tone for another unique Zombies experience from Infinity Ward. And it’s definitely something worth getting down to if you’re a fan of those old kung-fu movies. And who isn’t?
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
