‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’ Gets ‘Alcatraz’ Battle Royale Map

New Blackout Map

New Blackout Map

If you've been interested in checking out Black Ops 4's battle royale mode but haven't yet purchased this game, this is a great time to check it out. That all changed today, of all days, as Activision made the surprise announcement of a new map for Blackout.

We'll just throw caution to the wind and work under the assumption that this is indeed legitimate.

Players will be able to select "Alcatraz" at the beginning of a "Blackout" map, so it's not replacing the classic map that "Call of Duty" faithful have been getting to know since the battle royale mode debuted. As with all Black Ops 4 content, that release date only applies to PlayStation 4, with release dates for additional platforms to be announced at some point in the future.

Graeme Souness: Liverpool 'will to win' not enough to take title
After Liverpool had much the better of the first half, Spurs took command in the second period and levelled in the 70th minute through Lucas Moura.

Do note that Alcatraz is simply an addition to Blackout. It's now the biggest edition to the game since "Blackout" debuted, but there aren't many details known about what the map will offer at this point other than what the preview trailer shows off.

Thankfully, the wait won't be very long, as Alcatraz releases tomorrow.

"This is no joke, storm Alcatraz on PS4 and drop into Blackout for free on all systems tomorrow". I get my best results in Apex Legeds (my BR of choice) from sneaking around and letting other players kill each other off, but there's absolutely something to be said for immediately dropping into the middle of a crowd and punching the first person you see in the face. We imagine more details will be available tomorrow, so we'll keep an eye out for those.
