Zombies in Spaceland is a survival co-op mode launching with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

The mode was teased yesterday.

It all takes place in a 1980s setting complete with an era-specific soundtrack. Players take on the role of one of four classic 80’s archetypes: the rapper, a stereotypical Revenge of the Nerds dude, a Valley Girl, and a jock. If their voices sound familiar, you aren’t imagining things.

Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Austin Powers) plays Poindexter Ike Barinholtz (Mad TV, Suicide Squad) stars as the jock, Jay Pharoah (SNL, Ride Along)lends his voice to the rapper and Sasheer Zamata (SNL, Inside Amy Schumer) portrays the valley girl.

The characters will battle it out at a space-themed amusement park full of zombies, which breakdance. They do in the video at least.

Here’s the storyline:

“Zombies in Spaceland tells the story of four aspiring actors who come upon a mysterious movie theater for an audition. They’ve been invited by director Willard Wyler, portrayed with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Gotham), who was once the shining star of the horror genre.

“Unbeknownst to the actors, they will be transformed into characters and transported straight into Wyler’s film to fight against waves of zombies in a space-themed amusement park set in the ‘80s.”

The park’s DJ features the voice and likeness of David Hasselhoff who also plays an “invaluable resource” as the character try to escape a fate worse than death.


A Twitch stream focusing on Zombies in Spaceland will air tomorrow, August 17, during gamescom 2016 at 9am PT/12pm ET/5pm UK. It will also be streamed on the Call of Duty YouTube channel and Facebook Live.

Those who pre-order any edition Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will receive the Zombies in Spaceland Pack which consists of bonus in-game digital items, including a zombies weapon camo, zombies weapon reticle, animated zombies calling card and the Fate & Fortune card pack.

They’ll also receive the re-imagined Terminal bonus multiplayer map.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be released November 4 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
