Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare – Sabotage – DLC Review.

Infinity Ward decided to use Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare to offer players another futuristic story that divided the players. The creators noticed the problem and the first addition already shows that the American studio has done its homework.

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be expanded with a package of four add-ons, so players can count on standard attractions. The creators, however, must double and triple each time to offer interesting content. To start with, Infinity Ward doesn’t disappoint, although we don’t get the revolution we want again. Sabotage – as the first DLC pack is called – contains four maps for the online mode and a chapter of the campaign for zombies.

Dominion – the past returns in the future

For a good start I decided to read Dominion, the restored Afghan from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. I must admit that it was this place in its original form that charmed me in 2009, so I was happy to run around this location again. The authors, of course, focused on a large reconstruction and the action was transferred from the Middle Eastern desert to the surface of Mars. Instead of a wreckage of an airplane, a dilapidated spacecraft was placed in the center, and all buildings had a futuristic touch. After all, the map is a bull’s eye in my opinion – do you remember the magical place for campers on the hill? Is! Do you remember the building opposite, where you could also find a sniper area? Is! And all in all, it’s a very nice “rerun”, because the authors did not really think about it. The houses are in the right places, only small elements have been added, which, however, do not affect the perception of the whole. It’s a really nice return to Modern Warfare 2 and I want more.

Noir – dark Brooklyn

The map in the heart of dirty-modern Brooklyn has a great feel to it. The creators threw huge neon lights on residential buildings, nearby cafes, or even a hospital, emphasizing the time of events. It’s a distant, dark, and depressing future for wall-running and close-combat fans. This is a very interesting map with a big advantage – a depressing atmosphere. A good solution is to prepare a large building in the middle, because most of the clashes take place on its outskirts – of course, quite quickly I found my dream point, where I cut all incoming players during the tests. Players can count on quick action here.

Neon – a successful experiment

What is often missing in subsequent additions to the next installments of Call of Duty? The risks. Here we get a foretaste of it, because Neon is a map described by developers as a “virtual simulator”. During the game, I had the impression that it was an underdeveloped spot, the “bugs” of which are the greatest advantages – imagine a very dynamic clash and fight for the smallest point, rivals hide behind cars, and after a while … they disappear. Here, such gems happen often, because the location offers just such small “flaws”. Even when a player dies, his character disappears from the map. From the beginning, I liked these surprises, because they are in a way a modest refreshment of a well-known game. The versatility of the Neon is definitely a plus, because fans of all gameplay styles will find themselves here.

Renaissance – Italian atmosphere and narrow passages

For dessert, I left myself Renaissance located in Venice. At the beginning, I thought that a location without large, futuristic ornaments would be the strongest point in the list, but the dynamics of the action could overwhelm me here. Developers decided to book a seat in an Italian town, which captivates with its setting, but I did not like the narrow passages very much. Players jump, die, jump, die, die, jump and for me the chaos is a bit too palpable here.

Rave in the Redwoods – zombies, zombies, zombies!

The package could not miss another fight with a living carcass. In Rave in the Redwoods, the events unfold … On the set of a B-class horror movie in which a group of American teenagers go to a big lake. Sounds familiar? Of course! The authors took care of a darker atmosphere, which, however, can be quickly overcome by a small gimmick – I will not reveal too much. Of course, the realities of the struggle do not change, because again our task is to compete with new opponents, create traps and buy new weapons. In the latter aspect, there is a small surprise in the DLC, because the authors focused on a more powerful use of melee weapons – we are racing with a golf club, baseball with hammered nails and eliminating other opponents in very close contact. There are quite a few nice Easter Eggs on the map and you can see that Infinity Ward has an idea for this mode. More such meat!

For a good start … It’s okay

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare is not my favorite installment in this great series, but Infinity Ward has done its homework. I am sure that the prepared maps look much better than the ones we received in November last year. The creators clearly listen to the opinions of fans and focus on diversity.

There are still no revolutionary changes, but over the past months, it is undoubtedly one of the most interesting bundles for Call of Duty games. Customers will get at least three good maps (although this is still an open topic) and a very nice episode with running zombies. After the fall for the premiere, it is undoubtedly a big surprise. Is it worth taking at full price? It depends on the wallet, because the extension is not the cheapest (PLN 61), but at least this time you can be sure that you can go jogging in the created locations with pleasure.
