On April 16th, 2013, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 had released its second DLC known as Uprising to the world. In that DLC it included 4 MP maps in which were Encore, Vertigo, Magma, and Studio, but the MP maps were not the main attraction to that DLC. Aside from the 4 MP maps there was a Zombies map titled Mob of the Dead, a map that set off a new strand of story that we’ve never witnessed before, set in a place we’ve never seen zombies go to… Alcatraz Island. The Zombie map included 4 new characters know as Billy Handsome (Ray Liotta), Finn O’Leary (Michael Madsen), Sal DeLuca (Chazz Palminteri), and Al ‘The Weasel’ Arlington (Joe Pantoliano). Why am I mentioning a map that’s 5 years old you may be saying to yourself? Well in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 that map has been remade as part of the standard 3 maps that come on disc at launch under the new name Blood of the Dead!
Blood of the Dead will be different from the other maps featured on disc because it will have our original Primis Crew from BO2 and BO3! Blood of the Dead will also be in a separate storyline and universe from the Chaos Crew which means we will have two separate experiences throughout the span of Black Ops 4. The full map description for Blood of the Dead will be listed below.
Relive the undead legacy with this reimagined fan-favorite Zombies experience.
“Blood of the Dead” takes the classic Zombies heroes — Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo and Nikolai – on a journey to a secret laboratory beneath the iconic Alcatraz Penitentiary. Encountering a familiar enemy Hell-bent on imprisoning them for all eternity, the Primis crew quickly realize that the future predicted by the Kronorium – the future they sough to secure – is now in serious jeopardy.
Alcatraz in Blood of the Dead will have the same areas, but with a few new places added making the map bigger than ever; the Easter Egg will be different as well! The Blundergat will be returning into the map, along with different elemental upgrades, and Brutus and the Hellhounds will be returning as the boss zombies of the map!
