Today, Black Desert Online unlocks the true potential of the Wizard and Witch classes, the last pair to Awaken.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – DLC Pack 1 (Sabotage) coming first to PS4 on January 31st


Fresh Call of Duty content is coming, as Activision and Infinity Ward have released new details for the upcoming first DLC Map Pack for Call of Duty: Infinite WarfareSabotage. Featuring four intense, new multiplayer maps, each with its own distinctive look and feel, and a new zombies co-op experience called Rave in the Redwoods, set in a ‘90s abandoned lakeside summer camp, Sabotage releases January 31, 2017 first on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation4 computer entertainment system, with other platforms to follow.

Rave in the Redwoods, the next thrilling chapter of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare zombies experience, continues the macabre narrative while transporting players into a new decade: the 1990s. Willard Wyler, the enigmatic movie director villain, returns and has trapped the protagonists inside another one of his twisted horror films. The four playable characters from the original story also return, but with fresh, over-the-top roles, as they learn more about Wyler’s evil plot while fighting all-new varieties of the undead in an abandoned, lakeside summer camp where zombie ravers have taken over and turned the grounds into a techno-fueled illusion. Rave in the Redwoods is a tense, spooky thrill ride with shocking twists, surprises, and a slew of new Easter eggs for players to discover.

In addition to the Rave in the Redwoods zombies content, Sabotage will also include four new multiplayer maps:

  • Noir – A dark, grimy city map inspired by futuristic Brooklyn at night, Noir is a classic three-lane map set against a backdrop of a dystopian future, filled with cafes and parks surrounding a brutal downtown warzone.
  • Neon – A virtual training center designed for urban warfare, Neon is a unique, digitised battle arena where cars and other structures spawn out of thin air and enemies dissolve into hundreds of pixels when defeated. Middle lane sightlines will cater to long-range players while the outsides of the map allow for quick counter-attacks in close-quarter action.
  • Renaissance – Set in Northern Italy, Renaissance pits players against each other on the narrow streets of Venice surrounded by classic architecture and buildings that promote continuous action through the canals and neighbourhoods of this iconic city.
  • Dominion – A re-imagining of the classic Afghan map from Modern Warfare 2, now set on Mars, Dominion retains all the memorable landmarks and gameplay of the original, anchored by the crashed ship in the center, with a few enhancements designed to take advantage of the new movement system.
