Zombies dudes and dudettes rejoice! Infinity Ward has unveiled ‘Zombies in Spaceland,’ the undead survival co-op mode for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Immersing players like myself in an all-new 1980s setting with a most excellent soundtrack from the era, yes I’m pretty old – 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.
Could this be more of the same from previous COD Zombie affairs, just a different setting, maybe, maybe not. 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.
