PS4 NEWS this week includes a new Call of Duty 2017 boost, fresh PS4 VR announcements and possible new information connected to the next No Man’s Sky update.
While there has been a lot of talk about the next addition in the COD franchise, a big PS4 boost is coming for the Call of Duty 2017 title currently available.
Soon, players will have Call of Duty Infinite Warfare DLC 2 to play, along with the Zombies expansion mode included.
Like past bundles, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare DLC 2 will have four new multiplayer maps, as well as a fresh zombies co-op experience called Shaolin Shuffle.
The new Call of Duty Zombies experience is set in a ‘70s era New York disco-zombie fright fest, following on from its earlier movie-themed eras shift.
Continuum is scheduled for release April 18th, first on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 4, with other platforms to follow.
“We couldn’t be more excited to deliver a new co-op zombies chapter with Shaolin Shuffle, with an all-new setting and story, that continues the wild and increasingly twisted narrative,” said Dave Stohl, Studio Head of Infinity Ward.
“For multiplayer, we’re creating a diverse set of maps from Turista and Scrap, to Archive, that cater to various play styles in cool ways and allow fans to experiment with different rigs and loadouts.
“And then there’s Rust, one of our all-time favourite maps from Modern Warfare 2, re-imagined and now called Excess to complete the multiplayer package.”
Shaolin Shuffle features the return of Willard Wyler, the mysterious movie director villain portrayed with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Gotham).
Ubisoft recently confirmed that the original U.S.S. Enterprise bridge will be playable in the Ongoing Voyages mode, which generates randomised missions for countless hours of solo and co-op adventure.
“We felt it was important to include a part of classic Star Trek with this game, especially during Star Trek’s 50th anniversary,” said David Votypka, Senior Creative Director at Red Storm Entertainment.
New No Man’s Sky updates appear to be in the works, following the release of patch 1.24 on PS4 and PC.
Hello Games have yet to confirm when their run of Foundation Updates are set to come to end, and until then, fans can hope to see more new and missing features arrive.
The Pathfinder Update added a heap of new content, introducing planetary vehicles, base sharing, PS4 Pro support, ship/weapon specialisation, permadeath mode, and much more.
Within the patch notes for the most recent updates, Hello Games has also confirmed that they are not yet done, saying that most recent content drops “shows the path for the future”.
