Call of Duty Blackout’s first new map, Alcatraz, out yesterday

Posted on: Apr 03, 2019 By smartlaunch in News and trends,

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout battle royale mode has got a new map called, and set on, Alcatraz. Activision says players will need to develop new strategies and tactics to succeed on the Rock, which will feature both long-range outdoor fights and tight, close-quarters combat inside.

The map, called Alcatraz, appears to borrow heavily from one of the series’ most popular zombies maps. Mob of the Dead is also set in the same prison location, though this does not appear to be the same map, as it features a large outdoor area.

The Alcatraz map came out yesterday on PlayStation 4, and will arrive on other platforms at a later date. The Blackout battle royale mode in Black Ops 4 will be free to anyone who wants to download it from April 2 to April 30, which should give everyone a chance to try out the new map.
