'Call of Duty: Black Ops 4' New Frequency Map & 5 Returning Maps Revealed

Treyarch revealed new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer details during a pre-E3 livestream Thursday afternoon, and we've got all the juicy details you should know. From new maps to returning favorites, it seems there's already a lot to love about 2018's game.


Before getting to the new stuff, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will feature at least five remastered and remixed maps from the series' past.

  • Jungle
  • Slums
  • Summit
  • Firing Range
  • Nuketown [available in November]: The dev team teased that 2018's version will take the locale back to its Cold War roots with an exciting twist.


E3 attendees will be able to play the following maps on the E3 show floor next week. Many of these were playable at the Black Ops 4 reveal event in May, but one of them was announced exclusively for E3 and viewers of the livestream.

Contraband: Takes place on a tropical island in Colombia. It features plenty of tight choke points.

For those who were curious about Zombies, Director Jason Blundell said he couldn't be on today's stream because he was working with his team on "a very special project" to be revealed at a later date. To learn more about Black Ops 4 Zombies, fans can watch a special Zombies panel during E3.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC Oct. 12.
