Infected mode returns today in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PS4

Don’t get the lurgy

A fan-favourite mode returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 this week, as developer Treyarch has announced that this week’s run of extra content will include the infamous “Infected” mode.

Originally debuting in Modern Warfare 3, Infected is a multiplayer mode which begins with one player “infected” who must then attempt to melee all of the other players to spread the virus. All the survivors must evade or kill the Infected until a five-minute time limit expires. It’s a bit of a goofy mode, but its a lot of fun, and as such has featured in multiple Call of Duty games since.

Although Infected is expected to be a PS4 exclusive mode for about a week, all platforms are receiving the Alcatraz map for Blackout, Black Ops 4‘s battle royale mode today. This grisly map sees the Last Person Standing gimmick hunker down within the walls of the miserable San Francisco penitentiary.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available now on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
