Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Absolution Dlc Is Out Now, Here’s The Bombastic Launch Trailer

7 July 2017 8:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s third map pack has arrived on PlayStation 4, affording fans of futuristic combat the opportunity to explore a handful of new maps. Owners of the shooter’s $50 Season Pass can download the latest add-on for nothing, with those opting to go for an individual purchase required to drop $15 in order to access the new content.

Whether or not you chose to do so likely comes down to how weary you’ve grown of Infinite Warfare‘s current suite of battlegrounds, but I have to say, Infinity Ward’s latest efforts certainly look up to par with the series’ more memorable war zones. As revealed previously, Bermuda, Permafrost, Fore and Ember are the four competitive maps on offer this time around, all of which see soldiers deployed into an assortment of memorable, if slightly outlandish, arenas in which to do battle.
