Activision has introduced the primary new map for Name of Responsibility: Black Ops four’s Blackout battle royale mode. And simply to get this out of the best way, no, this isn’t an April Idiot’s joke in any means.
The map is known as Alcatraz, and it’s based mostly on the jail island of the identical identify within the San Francisco Bay. It seems to be a a lot smaller Blackout map than the present one, and Alcatraz’s debut trailer (which you’ll be able to watch under) describes it as being “shut quarters battle royale” consequently.
The trailer additionally options longer vary fights across the exterior of the map’s central jail, in addition to what appears to be like like a good quantity of verticality with a lighthouse and even a transferring gondola-type factor to your crew to experience to the highest of the jail – which, after all, has zombies in it.
It’s unclear precisely how massive Alcatraz might be, however we received’t have to attend lengthy to seek out out. The brand new map will go dwell on PlayStation four tomorrow, April 2, and coming to different platforms someday after that.
Blackout acquired a “hardcore” replace final month as effectively, so updates don’t look like slowing down simply but.
