Infinity Ward has revealed a new Zombies entry for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Zombies in Spaceland. The co-op-centric mode is set in a space-themed amusement park during the 1980s. Continuing series tradition, the story will follow four characters voiced by several actors and comedians: David Hasselhoff, Ike Barinholtz, Jay Pharoah, Paul Reubens, and Sasheer Zamata. Four actors are invited to an audition by director Willard Wyler, played by Paul Reubens, but find themselves transformed into an archetype (jock, nerd, rapper, and valley girl) and stuck in one of his movies. Helping them along the way is a mysterious DJ, played by David Hasselhoff. Jay Pharoah is slated to host a Zombies in Spaceland stream tomorrow, starting at 11:00 a.m. (CST), on the Call of Duty Twitch channel and Youtube channel. The mode will also be playable at this year’s Call of Duty XP.
