The map mysteriously vanished last week, but it’s coming back soon.
A lot of eyes are on the next installment of the annual shooter series, Call of Duty. We know the reveal for the 2019 edition is coming soon, with several bits of rumors and hints that Infinity Ward will return to the Modern Warfare subset of the series that helped launch it into a yearly behemoth. But before that, the 2018 edition, Black Ops 4, is still very much going strong, and today it’ll get a returning map in Blackout mode.
While the game has gotten a returning Specialist in Spectre, it’s not the only thing coming back. Last week, with no real fanfare or acknowledgement, the Alcatraz map was removed from the Blackout mode, COD’s take on battle royale. It was a strange decision, as the map had only released at the beginning of April, making many wonder what happened. Regardless of whether it was technical issues or something else, as you can see from the game’s official Twitter below, the map will return today on all platforms, with all the previous PS4 exclusive content from last week added to the Xbox One and PC as well.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The latest update is live now across all platforms, and for a limited time, a starter edition of the game is available through the monthly Humble Bundle package.
This week in #BlackOps4:
• Spectre (Xbox One/PC)
• “Wetworks” map update + Bounty Hunter in Blackout (Xbox One/PC)
• "Super Blood Wolf Moon" Gauntlet in Zombies (Xbox One/PC)
• Alcatraz returns to Blackout May 7 on all platforms
• Prop Hunt arrives May 10 (Xbox One/PC) pic.twitter.com/TC6j5mB4iR
