- "Four aspiring actors arrive to an old rundown theater where they’re invited to watch some old horror movies, they are then unexpectedly transported into the screen – actually becoming characters in those films. Now they must fight to survive an onslaught of deadly zombies before the last reel runs out and their souls are sacrificed forever."
- — Synopsis
Zombies in Spaceland is the first Zombies map featured in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, released on November 4 for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It features a brand new cast of four aspiring actors who audition for a Willard Wyler film. Wyler's other worldly connections suck the four actors into the film, causing them to be the stars of Zombies in Spaceland.
The map features brand new mechanics such as arcade machines and David Hasselhoff as the park's DJ. The map also contains many classic elements of the Zombies mode such as buildables and many Easter Eggs. The buildables in this map include N31L the robot, the Shredder, the Head Cutter, the Dischord, the Face Melter and the Seti-Com being important for the easter egg.
Zombies in Spaceland is a large map, with more open lanes in comparison to previous Zombies maps done by Treyarch, Sledgehammer and Raven. The map is split into five different sections:
The players spawn at the entrance of Spaceland, where a power switch can be located at the back room to their left, which powers up the area of the entrance and the Junction area. Players can purchase the Hailstorm or the M1 at the entrance for 500 points per weapon, or buy Up 'N Atoms (500 on solo up to three times, 1500 in co-op).
A barricade stands between the entrance and the Junction area. Here, the players can find a Souvenir Token machine, N31L the Robot, a Fortune Teller, as well as a possible spawn location for a Seti-Com part. The Banshee and Oni are also available for purchase.In the center is the main Portal, where after the other four Portals have been traversed, will open the entrance to the Pack-a-Punch projector machine. While inside the Pack-a-Punch room, players have 30 seconds to upgrade their weapons, activate the Trap UFOs, or complete the crystal cabinet inside in order to build the Exquisite Core. After accessing the room, it will become unavailable for some time. From the Junction, the players can choose to go to one of the three areas by donating and opening barriers to: Journey into Space, Triton Mountain, or Kepler System.
Journey into SpaceEdit
Journey into Space, going left from the Junction, is comprised of three separate areas (four if the Astrocade is counted). The first area is immediately beyond its corresponding junction door and contains an Erad wall-buy, a Magic Wheel, a trap, a DJ spawn location, a souvenir station, a path to the Astrocade, a door to the Underground and another door to the second area. Here players can also find the board to place parts for the Face Melter quest buildable weapon. The second area contains a Volk wall-buy, another Magic Wheel, another trap, a Fortune Teller, a Teleport Portal, the Tuff Nuff perk and a door. This door leads to the third area which contains a continually-active trap in the form of Dodgems carts (which are permanently active or disabled depending on whether the power is on or not), the Blue Bolts perk, a Karma-45 wall-buy, a second entrance to the Astrocade and another entrance to the Underground. Between the Dodgems cart trap and the Astrocade entrance is another Magic Wheel.
Polar Peaks is straight ahead from the Junction. Up the long tunnel players will first see an RPR EVO wall buy and a trap. To the right is a portal, a door which to the left are the spaceship fountains or down straight to a door to the underground. Here players can also find the board to place parts for the Head Cutter quest buildable weapon. Up the stairs either direction are two Magic Wheels, an HVR and Volk wall buy, Quickies, a door down towards the Astrocade, and the Triton roller coaster game ride.
To the right of the Junction is the Kepler System part of the park. To the left past the barricade is a souvenir machine, a portal, and up the left stairs is a Magic Wheel and another barricade going down towards Triton Mountain or the spaceship fountains. To the right is the Octonian Hunter shooting game. A permanent trap is in the form of a tick-tocking crocodile mouth which crushes anything under its jaws after 3 seconds of a player stepping in its mouth, which can also down a player even with Tuff Nuffs. Past that are an Erad and HVR wall buy, a trap, a Fortune Teller, a Magic Wheel, Bomb Stoppers, and Slappy Taffy.
The Spaceship Fountains is a circle of water spouts that fire upward once the power is turned on, shooting the player up into the air, and killing Zombies that get caught in it. The only way to get here is by a path either from Polar Peaks or an Underground door and over a tiny bridge past a DJ location. Here players can buy Bang Bangs. One of the fountains is tilted and shoots at an angle, and when standing on it, will catapult the player over into the Kepler System. Past this area is another small bridge that leads to a Magic Wheel, and next to that is a slide that goes back down to the Junction area and next to the Polar Peak entrance.
The Underground has three entrances and acts as an underground tunnel system between the Astrocade, Journey into Space and Kepler System. The Kepler system entrance is located between Polar Peak and Kepler System, while the other two entrances are both located near Journey into Space and the Astrocade. The first Underground entrance located between Journey into Space and Astrocade is located just beyond the path to the Astrocade at the main junction door and this entrance leads to approximately halfway between Kepler System and the other entrance in the Underground. The Underground contains a Banshee wall-buy and an HVR wall-buy, as well as the Racin' Stripes perk. Here players can also find the board to place parts for the Shredder quest buildable weapon.
The Astrocade has three entrances (one that leads to Journey into Space, another that leads to Polar Peak and a third that leads to the main junction) and contains the Disco trap, multiple arcade machines (some of which are playable and reward tickets), a Teleport Portal and an NV4 wall-buy. In the back corner is a prize booth where players can exchange tickets for ammo refill, grenade refill, Cryo grenades, or the Forge Freeze. The Golden Teeth can be purchased for 300 tickets in order to open the cabinet inside the crocodile trap in the Kepler System. Here players can also find the board to place parts for the Dischord quest buildable weapon.
Players can ride the roller coaster that also serves as a shooting game. Throughout the ride, players have to shoot targets to earn tickets, disable lasers and open doors. Zombie Clowns will also appear on the tracks, and players must shoot them or else take lots of explosive damage and get downed in the middle of the ride.
These songs are played from the Cosmic Tunes Radio stations and can be heard around the map. The jingles for each of the Candy Perks play as advertisements in-between songs.

Intro Cutscene TranscriptEdit
|Intro Cutscene Transcript|
Wyler: I am Willard Wyler, master of the macabre. For over 40 years, I've directed the most TERRIFYING, VISCERAL, and BLOODY scenes ever committed to film. My contribution to horror is nothing short of genius.
The screen then flashes as lightning strikes the outside of a theater, with the banner displaying "Willard Wyler Presents: Closed Permanently".
Wyler: Before my retirement, people demanded to know my secrets. How did I make it look all so real? Hah! If you really wanna know how the sausage is made in a Willard Wyler picture, the recipe is simple.
A limousine is seen arriving at the theater, dropping off four actors.
Wyler: First, you add actors. Then, you start GRINDING.
The actors enter the theater.
Andre: Hello? Ayy! Anybody here?
Sally: This is the place, right? I feel like we're being set up for some punk-ass reality show.
Poindexter: This is a Willard Wyler production! One time, he held an audition on an abandoned steam ship, and then sunk it, just for effect.
A.J.: Wait, you mean with the actors on it?
Lightning suddenly strikes, prompting Andre to scream in terror.
Andre: Heh, I was, uh... I was just getting into character.
A sound of creaking is heard, as the actors are all startled. They turn around to find Wyler standing behind them.
Actors: Willard Wyler!?
Wyler raises a hand and greets the actors.
Wyler: You're late... Welcome. You've all been chosen to play a unique role in my return to the big screen. My KILLER comeback.
Lightning strikes as Wyler mentions the word "killer comeback", giving the actors a look of confusion.
Wyler: But I warn you now: my methods tend to be a bit...*chuckles* extreme.
Sally turns over to Andre.
Sally: Is he kidding?
The scene then changes to the cinema room, with the actors sitting at front row and Wyler standing on stage.
Wyler: I expect my actors to give it their all. Their blood, their bodies, everything to the performance. Thus, it is imperative that we set the mood to ensure each and every one of you fully commits to your character.
Wyler snaps his fingers. The screen behind him then lights up, as the sound of a film reel being played is heard.
Wyler: What you're about to become a part of is a culmination of my life's work. The crowning achievement of my career. The first scene is set in the 1980's. I call it... "Zombies in Spaceland".
Wyler then steps out of the cinema room.
Wyler: Hang on to your seats!
Wyler laughs maniacally as he closes the doors upon exiting. Sally looks over to Andre once more.
Sally: He is so not kidding.
Wyler enters the projector room, where a purple glowing ritual circle can be seen on the floor, with photographs of the four actors at the center. Wyler then uses a ritual knife and cuts his hand, dropping blood onto the photographs. Lightning strikes again as down in the cinema room, the four actors try to hold onto their seats as they get sucked into the screen.
A.J.: You still say this is all for effects!?
Poindexter: Forget what I said!!
Sally: I say: get me the hell out of here!!
Andre: Can't... hold... on!!
The four actors are then sucked into the film. The screen changes to inside the film, at the Spaceland theme park. All four actors find themselves wearing 1980's clothing.
A.J.: What's with the Letterman jacket?
Andre: And the bling!
Poindexter: It appears our wardrobes reflect the parts that we are auditioning for. And clearly... *sighs* I'm the nerd.
Sally: Ugh, you've got to be kidding me.
Suddenly, zombies begin to appear before the actors. While initially confused, the actors then pull out guns as they begin to take on the zombies. A.J. is seen shooting several zombies in the head with his Kendall 44.
A.J.: He shoots... he scores!
A zombie attempts to attack Sally from the back, but she maneuvers around it and stabs it in the head with a set of spoons. She then waves her hand to shake off the blood.
Sally: Ugh, yuck. Gag me.
Poindexter shoots at a group of zombies off-screen with a Volk assault rifle.
Poindexter: Totally epic!
Blood then spatters all over the screen as the view switches to Andre, who mows down a crowd of zombies with his dual-wield MacTav-45's.
Andre: Woo! Now that's how we drop the mic, ye!
The four actors then stand by the Spaceland map sign, surrounded by piles of zombie corpses. The map title, "Zombies in Spaceland" then appear on screen.
Ending Cutscene TranscriptEdit
This cutscene is only unlockable after beating the map's main easter egg as Willard Wyler.
|Ending Cutscene Transcript|
The door to the cinema room bursts open, revealing Willard Wyler behind it. A door closing noise is heard, prompting the four actors to turn around.
Wyler: Now do you understand? THIS, is why I chose each of you!
The scene zooms in on Wyler's mouth.
Wyler: There is much to do. Shall we begin?
Dramatic music plays, followed by a credits section. At the end, the text "The End" appears on screen, but then followed by an ellipsis and a question mark.
Wyler: The end?! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
