Say what you will about Call of Duty, but Activision knows how to create a trailer. The first DLC pack, Sabotage, drops today, and the new trailer syncs up beats to bullets with explosions that would make Michael Bay movies look tame. It definitely pulls off the summer action blockbuster appeal, and, if it has been too long since you saw an explosion in a game, give it a watch to calm those nerves.
The new DLC will add four new maps and a new zombie mission. The maps include Renaissance set in Italy, the futuristic Noir, the VR-inspired Neon, and Dominion, a reimagined Afghan from Modern Warfare 2.
The new zombie mission is called Rave in the Redwoods, and the cast from the first game is thrown into a new horror movie scenario by Willard Wyler, the demented director voiced by Paul Reubens. We are not surprised. We always suspected you, Pee-wee.
One thing that did surprise us was Kevin Smith. He is in the new zombie mission, and he plays himself. He has been left for dead, and, after Clerks 2, who could blame them. Just like the promise of Clerks 3, it would not be a shock if he tries to rise from the dead as well, so stay sharp.
Sabotage is available here, and it is a part of the season pass.
If you worked at Activision, what other celebrities or characters would you like to see in the next DLC pack? For us, we would choose Mr. Belvedere with original sound clips from the television show when he attacked your character or when you finally eliminated the zombified butler. Let us know in the comments.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
