SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Zombies dudes and dudettes rejoice. Activision
Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard,
Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), 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.

“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
favorite 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 theater 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.
