Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare goes radical with Zombies in Spaceland

Activision has revealed the first details of the zombie-themed co-op mode in the upcoming shooter Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. It's called Zombies in Spaceland, and it will take players back to the 1980s with its characters, setting and soundtrack.

Here's what Activision has to say about the new twist on the zombie mode:

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.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare is due out for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 4. The $79.99 Legacy Edition of the game has a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare as well.
