Treyarch has finally flipped the switch, and the Black Ops 4 Absolute Zero operation is now live on PS4, with the Xbox One and PC set to receive the content a week later! It will be first released on Playstation 4, so look out for its launch. A cruise ship made up of tight lanes and small rooms, Hijacked is situated off the coast of Blackout's map, so players wanting to check it out will have to reach the zone via wingsuit, chopper, or boat, unless they feel up for an extended swim from the beach. Inspired by the classic Treyarch Multiplayer map, our favorite luxury yacht becomes everyone's new favorite hot drop in Blackout.
There's also a new character for Blackout: the cyborg mercenary Reaper, who should be familiar to CoD players. Players will be able to unlock her by completing Tier 1 in the revamped Black Market.
