In a classic example of “two-things-you-never-thought-you’d-hear-in-the-same-sentence-category”, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (Cassandra Peterson) will serve as a helpful guide to players in the upcoming DLC (down-loadable content) map pack adventure Attack of the Radioactive Thing! which is included in the third Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare DLC supplement entitled Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Absolution.
According to an official release from Activision, “The map pack features four new, diverse multiplayer maps, and a new zombies co-op experience called Attack of the Radioactive Thing!, set in a ‘50s era beach town where a government science experiment has gone horribly wrong…Additionally, horror movie icon Elvira, played with voice and likeness by Cassandra Peterson (Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, Elvira’s Movie Macabre), will help players survive and give them gameplay tips and side quests with her unique Elvira style.”
Along with Elvira’s presence in the game, genre fans will certainly appreciate the classic sci-fi and horror theming, which will see the “…return of Willard Wyler, the enigmatic movie director villain portrayed with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Gotham). Wyler has trapped the four protagonists inside an all-new horror film, set in the 1950s and in the style of the Creature Feature films of the era. Players will fight a new array of zombie enemies across a ravaged beach town where a government science experiment has transformed the residents into flesh-devouring zombies and introduced a new biological menace into the city.”
Absolution is scheduled to be released on July 6th on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 4, with other platforms to follow. No digital images of Elvira have been released at this time, but stay tuned to Horror News Network for your first glimpse of them.
