After the announcement yesterday, Treyarch has officially released the brand new map for the Blackout mode, joining the regular launch map in the Blackout rotation.

The new map is a remake of Alcatraz is a close quarter Blackout experience, unlike anything before in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The map is free for all players starting now on PlayStation 4, with other platforms to follow next week.

  • 40 players, with 10 teams start the game. Only Quads available right now.
  • Can respawn every 30 seconds up to 5 times (redeploy in the map)
  • No helicopter, spawn in random portals across the map
  • Weapon wall buys where you are guaranteed to find a weapon every 30 seconds

This is a close-quarters battle royale. Take no prisoners on Call of Duty┬«: Black Ops 4’s new Blackout map, Alcatraz, available now on PS4, other platforms to follow.

Originally shown off during the Operation Grand Heist trailer for a split second, Treyarch then added a crashed plane in the northwest section of the map. This is a nod to the Black Ops 2 Zombies map, Mob of the Dead in which a group of mobsters attempt to escape the prison on a makeshift bi-plane.

Here’s the overall look at the map and how it works:

Alcatraz Map is available now for free on PlayStation 4 and is available April 9 on Xbox One and PC.
