Black Ops 4 Adds New Blackout Map, Alcatraz, But Only On PS4 For Now

Treyarch has introduced a new map for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's battle royale mode, Blackout. The map dropped for PS4 on April 2. This map is slightly smaller than the standard Blackout map that shipped with the game. It's also based on an iconic location known for its tourism and Nic Cage movie alike: Alcatraz. You can check out the reveal trailer below.

Alcatraz the island prison off the coast of San Francisco. The real one closed in 1963 and since then has been a popular tourist destination, and frequently used in pop culture. Black Ops 4's version brings close quarters combat to the island, as players fight for survival outside among buildings and watchtowers and inside through cells and tight corridors. It also changes how you drop into the map, and features more zombies roaming about. Check out the video below to see it.

Blackout is one of three modes in Black Ops 4, alongside competitive multiplayer and the cooperative Zombies mode. This year's Call of Duty entry opted to forgo the series' usual single-player campaign mode. Activision has been steadily issuing updates to its modes, most recently adding the St. Patty's-themed Shamrock and Awe update with new cosmetics and other goodies.

Before that it made some quality-of-life updates like an update to its standard map and a Hardcore game mode. This came with an update that made various changes to the multiplayer and Zombies mode too. Operation Grand Heist was the spring's big content update, adding a new Specialist, weapons, a Gauntlet mode, and a lot more.
