Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s first batch of downloadable content, titled Sabotage, will be released on PlayStation 4 on Jan. 31, publisher Activision announced today. The DLC includes four new multiplayer maps and a new episode for Infinite Warfare’s Zombies mode that’s set in a cabin in the woods.

Sabotage’s four maps include Noir, which is set in futuristic Brooklyn; Neon, a virtual combat arena that plays with the physical rules of Call of Duty multiplayer maps; Renaissance, which has players battle it out in Venice, Italy; and Dominion, a re-imagining of Modern Warfare 2’s Afghan map, that relocates the action to Mars.

Here’s a more detailed description of those maps, courtesy Activision:

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, digitized 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 neighborhoods 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.

Infinite Warfare’s Zombies mode will expand with Sabotage’s “Rave in the Redwoods,” which sends players to “an abandoned camp-turned rave party packed with terrifying Zombie enemies and classic 90’s style,” according to Activision and developer Infinity Ward. The new Zombies add-on includes new weapons, new traps and a new character called The Slasher.

Sabotage debuts on PS4 next month, and will come to other platforms later.
