Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty: Mobile is getting the Black Ops 4’s Blackout map. The map will be introduced to the Call of Duty: Mobile game on September 22 as part of a new update. Call of Duty: Mobile Season 8 is set to start on September 23 on Thursday, September 23 at 8 AM IST as the company celebrates the second anniversary of the mobile game.
The company has posted a video on Twitter which further gives us a glimpse of the upcoming update. Activision will allow users to revisit the very first Call of Duty Battle Royale map – Blackout, which was originally launched in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Blackout was the largest map in any Call of Duty game ever and included parts of existing multiplayer maps such as Estate, Nuketown, Construction Site, and many more. Additionally, the update will enhance the Battle Royale experience. Activision has also confirmed that it is planning to announce a new tournament set on the Blackout map, as part of the Anniversary season. The company is introducing three new events – an Anniversary Cake event, an Anniversary Puzzle event, and a new themed event called Counterattack.
Players will have the opportunity earn 50 new tiers of Battle Pass rewards. Activision has stated that Season 8 will release with newly added free and premium content including new characters such as Alias – Battleworn and Velikan – Volcanic Ash, new functional weapons – the R9-0 shotgun.
