Treyarch has announced the next operation for Black Ops 4, rolling out tomorrow on PS4, with new modes, weapons, maps, and Spectre Specialist.

Operation Spectre Rising is the newest Black Ops 4 operation coming to PS4 tomorrow, April 30. Treyarch revealed the new operation on its Twitter account along with the official Call of Duty Twitter account.

It follows in the footsteps of February’s Operation Grand Heist, and will see the return of the Spectre Specialist, first introduced in Black Ops 3.

The Wetworks map update will see Blackout’s map get flooded, and the trailer shows players zipping across the terrain in rafts.

New multplayer maps include Artifact in the southern region of Iceland, Masquerade in Rajshahi, Bangladesh, and the return of Black Ops 1’s WMD map set on Mount Yamantau, Russia.
