Activision is reporting that anyone that pre-orders Call of Duty: Black Ops II will get the bonus downloadable map Nuketown 2025. Not that any Call of Duty fans needed extra incentive, but a “reimagined” version of the original Nuketown map that was featured in the first Black Ops game? Sure, we’ll take it!
“Multiplayer fans of Call of Duty: Black Ops LOVE Nuketown,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head of Treyarch. “Flat out, Nuketown was a blast to play before, and we’re excited about the reimagined Nuketown 2025 in Call of Duty: Black Ops II. We can’t wait to play with everyone come this November.”
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last decade, Call of Duty: Black Ops II is easily one of the most (if not the most) anticipated games of the year. According to Activision and developer Treyarch, this latest entry represents “an unprecedented leap for the franchise”. Whereas the first game had you taking part in operations in the 1960’s, Black Ops II moves things to a modern warzone featuring “a groundbreaking single-player campaign with branching storylines, advanced weaponry, new graphics technology”. And of course the multiplayer game is undoubtedly going to be the major draw for fans featuring what the developer calls a greater emphasis on “eSports” and match customization. And yes, there will be zombies. Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be released on November 13th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Go pre-order now, if you haven’t already.
