Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is set to get its first new map for Blackout, its battle royale mode, inspired by the island of Alcatraz.

Aptly named Alcatraz, the new map is more of a close-quarters affair as it’s much smaller than the game’s main Blackout map. As well as being set on an island, Alcatraz also features a prison, much like the real-world version, that features tight corridors, prison cells, and of course… zombies.

The map also seems to have a lot of verticality about it, so you can totally enjoy finding some really great loot only to be popped off by someone lucky enough to get a sniper as soon as they land on the roof.

The new map arrives today, first on PlayStation 4, because splitting up your audience in 2019 is still a fantastic idea… much like pre-order betas.

Presumably, Alcatraz will launch on other platforms a few weeks later. Check out the trailer below:
