Black Ops 4 Blackout Free Access features all the intense action from Black Ops 4’s battle royale game mode, with both the original Blackout map that brings together characters, locations, weapons and gear from across the series, all in the biggest map in franchise history, as well as the brand-new Alcatraz map (the map is live today on PS4 with other platforms to follow).
During the Free Access window, fans will be matchmade with all Blackout players, and be able to play in solos, duos and quads. All progression made will be saved and transferred if players choose to upgrade to a full version of the game.
The new Alcatraz map is set in a fog-filled island boasting a variety of environments that all lead up to the big cellhouse atop the hill. Requiring new strategies and tactics, players will drop in, gear up and fight through both close-quarters combat and long-range exterior firefights as they battle to be the last squad standing.
Alcatraz is launching in addition to the original Blackout map, so players will have two distinct maps to choose from when jumping into the mode.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12, 2018.
