Over the past few days, Treyarch have been offering brief snippets of the new maps featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 alongside some returning maps from previous Black Ops entrants. In total, Black Ops 4, at launch, will have fourteen total maps of which ten are new and four are remakes. So far as original maps goes, on day one, that’s one more than last year’s entrant, Sledgehammer’s WW2 though two less than Infinity Ward’s Infinite Warfare.
The four remakes in particular come in the form of Jungle, Summit and Firing Range from Treyarch’s first foray into the Black Ops sub-series in 2010 as well as Slums from its follow-up, Black Ops 2. Fan favorite Nuketown will be made available for free post-launch. This is on top of the three separate maps within Black Ops 4’s zombies mode as well as Call of Duty’s own take on the Battle Royale genre via Blackout — itself containing nods and references to past maps and locales in Black Ops multiplayer. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 releases on October 12 for PS4, Xbox One & PC via Blizzard’s own Battle.net platform.
