During a livestream event held yesterday, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare developer Infinity Ward revealed some additional information not available in the trailer released early that day.

One such reveal is the teaser image below, which seems to suggest that a Zombies Mode will be included with Infinite Warfare.

The frame above the film reel reads “19-ATVI–85”. ATVI is the stock symbol for Activision, and it is possible that 19-85 could be a reference to the time period in which Infinite Warfare’s Zombies Mode takes place. Previous Zombies Modes have delved into the past, so perhaps this is a hint that Infinite Warfare’s will take place in the 1980’s.

Infinity Ward also established that their Zombies Mode isn’t connected to the one from Treyarch’s Black Ops series and that the studio is working on something “unique and different” for its entry.

Further details about Infinite Warfare were provided by Infinity Ward and are listed below:

  • The nefarious Settlement Defense Front is a “brutal, fascist” group bent on controlling resource outposts in space as part of their effort to put humanity in a “stranglehold.”
  • There will be dogfighting sequences in space, as well as ground-based combat.
  • There will be zero-G fighting that makes use of some new mechanics to be announced later.
  • The goal is for Infinite Warfare to feel grounded and believable; there won’t be aliens.
  • Brian Bloom (Dragon Age: Inquisition, Wolfenstein: The New Order) voices Lieutenant Reyes, the game’s protagonist.
  • The next major news event for Infinite Warfare will be E3 in June.
    At least one multiplayer map is set on a space station; additional maps take players to other planets in addition to Earth.
  • Actor David Harewood (Supergirl, Blood Diamond) plays the role of Sgt. Omar.
  • There will be a “whole new stable” of multiplayer items to use

Infinite Warfare launches on November 4th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Included in the premium versions of Infinite Warfare is the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remaster and no information has been released about if the remaster will be available for standalone purchase at launch or afterward.
