New Alcatraz Map for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout available now on PS4

Published

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.

As we opened our new crates that Activision sent through, Black Ops 4’s Summit map got an update.

The screens in the center of the map in Black Ops 4 turned on which seem to match to what some of our slides show:

There’s also a look at clocks of 4 out of the 5 locations that some of us got as part of the slides to see:

These changes do appear to be new, especially the screens with the targets on them. Analyzing older images of the maps showcase that the screens were not showing the same thing.

In addition, Treyarch has updated their cover photo on social channels.

It’s getting cold out there…

Gameplay from Black Ops 4’s canceled campaign mode revealed

A user on Reddit, r/BlackOps4, has shared what appears to be the very first footage of gameplay from the canceled campaign mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which released in October 2018, was the first Call of Duty game to not have a traditional campaign mode, instead opting to have three online-based modes.

Treyarch insisted throughout the year that they really didn’t have plans for a campaign and were focusing on an online connected experience for Black Ops 4, but many reports and sources described the campaign as being too ambitious and canceled because of issues with development.

On Reddit, a user has shared about two minutes of alpha footage of the gameplay of Black Ops 4’s campaign. The campaign, in alpha-state footage (meaning its not complete), had a very similar HUD to the MP experience of Black Ops 4. The user claims that the campaign and MP were supposed to be connected, and that’s why the HUD is so similar.

The gameplay starts by showing a message of “FIND THE AQUILUS CEO.”

Here’s the gameplay footage:

The user who posted this has not said where they got this gameplay footage as of now. He said he only has this footage, alongside an augmented footage of the engine of BO4, which he is not releasing at this time.
