You might have seen the news earlier today that Activision and Infinity Ward were releasing the second downloadable map pack for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for PlayStation 4 later this month. Now, thanks to the publisher, we have first official details on what to expect from the four maps that will be added to the game.

More than likely, you already know about the Shaolin Shuffle Zombies pack that will be included with the DLC, where you take on zombies back in the Blaxploitation era of the 1970’s, using advanced weapons and old-school kung fu powers to fend them off. You can check out that story at the link above.

As for the four other maps that will be included in the game, check out the breakdown below:

  • Turista – A plush spa and resort, Turista is nestled in the middle of a giant skeleton of an ancient creature. With sniper spots scattered across a majestic, central waterfall, Turista also boasts tight interiors for fans of close-quartered combat and a three-lane design that caters to a variety of play styles.
  • Scrap – Set in an abandoned junkyard on the Moon, Scrap features a combination of extended sightlines and tactical pathways that reward players who engage in both long and short range combat. 
  • Archive – Fast, frenetic engagements set the pace in Archive, a post-futurist art gallery where tight engagements contrast with open exterior battlegrounds in this wide three-lane style map. 
  • Excess – Perched atop a gilded penthouse in a sprawling future metropolis, Excess is a small, circular map re-imagined from the classic Modern Warfare 2 map, Rust, that retains the intense, fast-paced combat from the original.

“We couldn’t be more excited to deliver a new co-op zombies chapter with Shaolin Shuffle, with an all-new setting and story, that continues the wild and increasingly twisted narrative,” said Dave Stohl, Studio Head of Infinity Ward. “For multiplayer, we’re creating a diverse set of maps from Turista and Scrap, to Archive, that cater to various play styles in cool ways and allow fans to experiment with different rigs and loadouts. And then there’s Rust, one of our all-time favorite maps from Modern Warfare 2, re-imagined and now called Excess to complete the multiplayer package.”

The new map pack arrives on April 18th for PlayStation 4, and later on for Xbox One and PC.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
