Developer Treyarch has confirmed five maps for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 that will be remastered and updated from previous games.
During a livestream today, Treyarch detailed some of the maps that will be playable in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s multiplayer.
While there were no details about the battle royale mode Blackout’s map, we did learn that five of the maps in Black Ops 4‘s multiplayer will actually be updated remasters from the previous Call of Duty games.
From Black Ops 1, we’ll be getting updated versions of “Jungle,” “Summit,” and “Firing Range.” “Slums” will be coming over from Black Ops 2. And, of course, “Nuketown” – a longtime fan-favorite that has appeared in every Black Ops game – will also be featured in the new game. Nuketown, which has typically been reserved for fans who pre-order or purchase a la carte, will be free for everyone in Black Ops 4; however, it will not be available at the launch of the game. The other maps will all be playable at the game’s release.
“We are bringing Nuketown back for our fans,” co-studio head Bunting said. “It’s a map that we’ve reimagined every game. We’re kinda going back to the cold war roots a little bit, but with a twist.”
All of the maps will receive new visuals and adaptations to fit Black Ops 4‘s new style of gameplay.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is set to release on October 12, 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. We’ll presumably see more of the game and hopefully, learn more about Blackout during E3 next week.
