Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s battle royale mode, Blackout, is finally getting its first new map, the developer announced on Monday morning.

The map, called Alcatraz, appears to borrow heavily from one of the series’ most popular zombies maps. Mob of the Dead is also set in the same prison location, though this does not appear to be the same map, as it features a large outdoor area. Treyarch announced Alcatraz via a trailer, tweeted from the official Call of Duty account, which promises players close quarters battle royale content. Also making appearances are a flamethrower, a whole lot of zombies, and Peter Stormare.

The Alcatraz map comes out on PlayStation 4 on April 2, and will arrive on other platforms at a later date. The Blackout battle royale mode in Black Ops 4 will be free to anyone who wants to download it from April 2 to April 30, which should give everyone a chance to try out the new map.
