Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Disco-Themed DLC Stars Pam Grier And Pee-Wee Herman

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's second big downloadable content pack, "Continuum," comes out on April 18 on the PlayStation 4, and while it contains four new multiplayer maps, the most exciting addition is the disco-infused Zombies map called "Shaolin Shuffle," which features blaxploitation queen Pam Grier in a lead role.


Activision describes "Shaolin Shuffle" as an "action-packed, kung-fu fright-fest, filled with enough traps, easter eggs and surprises to satisfy the needs of any master protecting their dojo." In "Shaolin Shuffle," players will battle undead hordes across the funk-filled streets of 1970s New York using kung-fu and exploitation film-inspired melee weapons like nunchucks, katanas, and throwing stars to take out the zombie menace. In addition to Grier (Coffy, Jackie Brown), Paul Reubens (better known to the masses as Pee-Wee Herman), Seth Green (Robot Chicken), and Jay Pharoah (Saturday Night Live) also star.

And then, of course, there are the more traditional maps of "Continuum." In "Excess," players will fight for supremacy across a small circular level inspired by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's classic "Rust" map. "Turista" drops competitors into a futuristic spa, "Archive" combines cramped interiors with wide-open spaces in a high-tech art gallery, and "Scrap" takes players to the moon, where they'll fight among the ruins of old, discarded machinery.


Like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's other downloadable content packs, "Continuum" will debut on the PlayStation 4 first, and will come to other platforms at a later (currently unknown) date. The DLC costs $15 on its own, or it can be purchased as part of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's $50 season pass.

Compared to previous entries in the series, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was a disappointment in terms of both sales and fans' reactions (a number of players turned on the game before it even came out), but there's not a whole lot that a generous helping of disco won't fix–or so we hear, anyway. We'll see for sure a little bit later this month.
