As we look ahead to Black Ops 4 DLC 4, we know that we will see the usual content additions to Zombies, Blackout and Multiplayer. The latest operation, Operation Apocalypse Z, in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available on all platforms.
In DLC 3, players got their hands on three Multiplayer maps – Der Schatten, Remnant and Havana, a reimagining of the classic map from the original Black Ops game.
What maps will we expect to see in the multiplayer with DLC 4? Let's take a look at 5 maps that should be brought back to the Black Ops 4 multiplayer from Black Ops' past.
Standoff (Black Ops 2)
To this day, Standoff is still one of the best Call of Duty maps that has ever been made. First featuring on Black Ops 2, its three distinct lanes with multiple lines of sight makes it popular for all styles of play. It has also recently appeared in Blackout in the form of 'Ghost Town', including Standoff in DLC 4 would certainly provide a nostalgia trip for those who played Standoff all the way back in 2012.
Hanoi (Black Ops)
Synonymous for its hectic Capture The Flag and strategic Search & Destroy gameplay, Hanoi could be in contention for a return to the franchise. Ideal for aggressive SMG players, it was easy to catch an unsuspecting enemies off guard thanks to the dark corners situated around the map. Depending on the theme of DLC 4, could we see a more uplifting and colourful version of Hanoi added into Black Ops 4? Maybe even a daylight edition of the map?.
Express (Black Ops 2)
Thanks to its layout, Express was an excellent map for long range engagements and also accommodated for players that preferred a faster playstyle. Express had everything, from close quarters corridors to platforms located on the train tracks, there were lots of crafty spots to take down anyone overlooking the map. Express would be a great DLC 4 addition for the casual playlist or maybe even a late addition to the competitive map pool ahead of the Call of Duty 2019 World Championships in August.
Hunted (Black Ops 3)
Set in a big-game hunting lodge, beneath a waterfall in the mountains of Ethiopia, Hunted was a map that suited nearly every single game mode back on Black Ops 3. With the addition of water to access the lodge and the cave, it added an extra element of surprise. A potential overhaul could work if it was included in DLC 4 - rather than a secluded sunny paradise, how about a snowy outpost in the mountains instead?
Combine (Black Ops 3)
A frequent site for high-octane gameplay, the small nature of Combine favoured SMG players and was ideal for those trying to earn camos for some of the more unorthodox weaponry in the arsenal of Black Ops 3. The size of Combine would certainly suit the action-packed pace of Black Ops 4 and would be a great addition to an already diverse map pool with it's unclusion in DLC 4.
