Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Alcatraz Map Has Returned to Blackout

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 players have been having a ball lately as Treyarch has continued to pump out new content and updates on a consistent basis. That said, the popular battle royale mode Blackout received a new map some time ago that fans happened to really enjoy. Alcatraz condenses the all out action into close-quarters combat and players seem to really enjoy it. Luckily, the devs have finally decided to bring the map back to Blackout, and it is currently live across all platforms that Black Ops 4 is available on.

Taking to Reddit as they regularly do, Treyarch outlined everything that is new in the recent update for Black Ops 4.
