SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–One of the most-anticipated releases of the year is here, as Call
of Duty®: Infinite Warfare
is available now digitally and at
global retailers worldwide. The new title from the #1 top-selling
console franchise in North America for seven consecutive years, delivers
a bold, new direction by exploring the weight of leadership in an
emotional, character-driven narrative. In a first for the franchise, Infinite
introduces an all-new story happening throughout our solar
system, delivering gameplay innovations, such as space dog-fighting and
zero-g combat, as well as seamless transitions from
experience-to-experience keeping players constantly immersed in the
action. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is published by
Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision
Blizzard, Inc. [NASDAQ: ATVI],
and developed by Activision’s Infinity Ward.

In another first for Call of Duty®, Infinite Warfare
also features the greatest bonus content in franchise history through
the Legacy and Digital Deluxe Editions, which include Call of
Duty®: Modern Warfare® Remastered
. A celebration of one of the
most critically-acclaimed games in history, Call of Duty® 4:
Modern Warfare®
, the new remastered version has been
completely enhanced for a new generation.

Infinite Warfare is hands-down the best story campaign
we’ve had in years and is a leap forward in the fluid, fast-paced action
that Call of Duty fans know and love,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO
of Activision. “It’s a future war but an old school fight. And with a
great multiplayer and an over-the-top zombies mode as well, we can’t
wait for our fans to start playing. The only question is which mode are
you going to play first?”

Packed with an incredible amount of content and variety, Call of Duty
continues to deliver something for all players across three unique modes
of play in Infinite Warfare: an epic single-player story
campaign that puts narrative front and center as players are taken on a
classic journey with unforgettable characters; an all-new, 4-player
cooperative zombies mode called ‘Zombies in Spaceland’ that takes
players on a wild ride into a 1980s amusement park; and a deep and
rewarding multiplayer mode with robust customization options to suit
different play styles, including an all-new weapons crafting system,
full esports integration and much more.

“This is a special year for us and for the Call of Duty community,”
said Dave Stohl, Studio Head of Infinity Ward. “We began three years ago
with the goal to push ourselves in an all-new direction and take players
to places they’ve never been before. In Infinite Warfare,
we’re telling a classic war story of good vs. evil, and adding an epic
backdrop that lets us introduce a ton of innovative gameplay. Our
cooperative mode goes in a completely different direction that combines
1980s inspiration with a crazy, new zombie apocalypse. And, our online
multiplayer takes everything that makes Call of Duty multiplayer
so engaging, adds exciting Combat Rigs with their unique payloads and
traits, introduces the challenge of Mission Teams, as well as the chase
of prototype weapons, and then delivers a whole new level of gameplay
customization that gives gamers all the tools to fit their unique

For the first time in franchise history, the Call of Duty:
Infinite Warfare
story campaign unfolds seamlessly, creating one
continuous and immersive experience, with more player agency and
autonomy than ever before. In the campaign, fans play as Captain Reyes,
a Tier 1 Special Operations soldier who takes the helm of the
Retribution, one of Earth’s last remaining warships. Facing a ruthless
insurgency led by Admiral Salen Kotch, portrayed by Kit Harington (Game
of Thrones), and including the likes of MMA superstar Conor McGregor as
Captain Bradley Fillion, Reyes must defend his home against this
relentless enemy force. Along with the military, grounded combat that is
hallmark to the series, the game allows players to pilot their own
advanced jet fighter vehicle, known as the Jackal, in free-flying aerial
battles both on Earth and in space.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to work with the talented teams at
Activision and Infinity Ward to ensure PlayStation continues to be the
best place to play Call of Duty. We saw an incredible response to Infinite
multiplayer beta last month, not to mention our 30-day
early campaign access for Modern Warfare Remastered,” said Phil
Rosenberg, SVP of Global Partner Development and Relations, Sony
Interactive Entertainment America. “Today is the day PlayStation fans
have been eagerly waiting for: Infinite Warfare, the return of a
classic with Modern Warfare Remastered and the all-new
PlayStation VR experience with Jackal Assault.”

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare multiplayer allows gamers
to customize their play like never before, giving players more ways to
optimize their weapons and gear to their style of play. Infinite
introduces the most advanced tools of war: combat rigs,
high-tech equipment, and unique prototype weapons. It’s an incredibly
deep experience where everything – including weapons, gear, lethals and
tacticals – has been built around different types of play styles, and
where fans have the power to combine them however they want. The mode
features unparalleled customization, combined with the fluid,
momentum-based movement system of Call of Duty®: Black Ops III evolved
to custom-fit the new combat, to create a frenetic gameplay experience
where every second counts.

The multiplayer mode also introduces more ways than ever to earn rewards
and upgrade weapons. For the first time in Call of Duty, the game
features an all-new crafting system that allows fans to use Salvage,
an in-game currency earned during play, to create Prototype weapons that
come with special cosmetic and functional benefits called “Gun Perks.”
Additionally, players can level up and acquire specific weapons through
Mission Teams. Fans can join four distinct Mission Teams, each with its
own personality, challenges and team commander, to earn exclusive
rewards unique to that team.

In addition, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare debuts an
all-new cooperative mode called ‘Zombies in Spaceland.’ The mode
transports players into an original, action-packed storyline where
they’ll fight as one of four classic ‘80s archetypes to battle the
living dead in a space-themed amusement park full of deadly zombies, fun
attractions and much more. The mode can be played solo or with up to
three other players, and is easy for new fans to jump in right away.

Zombies in Spaceland features an all-star cast, starting with the
evil villain of the story named Willard Wyler. Wyler is portrayed with
voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Gotham).
Unbeknownst to the actors auditioning for Wyler, they will be
transformed into characters on screen and sent straight into Wyler’s
film. The playable characters are voiced by Seth Green (Robot Chicken,
Austin Powers) as “the nerd;” Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad)
as “the jock;” Jay Pharoah (Saturday Night Live, Ride Along) as “the
rapper;” and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside Amy Schumer) as
“the valley girl.” Players will also 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.

Also available is the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
Season Pass, which can be purchased on its own or obtained as part of
the Legacy Pro and Digital Deluxe editions of the game. Season Pass
gives discounted access to four Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
DLC Map Packs released during 2017 (discount based on a Season Pass

,” which immerses fans in the cockpit and puts them in
control of a Jackal, the personal fighter jet in Call of Duty:
