Nuketown was an interesting little map for Call of Duty: Black Ops. It was tiny, it was fast paced, and you'll die a lot if you don't keep moving. It was pretty fun though and I remember unleashing the chopper gunner for the first time on that map and just mowing down folks left and right.
Well Black Ops II will have the map re-imagined for its release this fall. That is, if you pre-order the game. Nuketown 2025 will be a bonus downloadable map for those who do. No word if and how you can get it if you don't pre-order yet, but I'm guessing some money might be involved here.
If you've never played Nuketown, check out the video below and we'll see what they changed for Black Ops II on November 13th.
NUKETOWN REIMAGINED FOR CALL OF DUTY®: BLACK OPS II Santa Monica, CA - July 2, 2012 - Nuketown, the most popular multiplayer map in Call of Duty®: Black Ops, is being reimagined for the hotly anticipated release of Treyarch's Call of Duty®: Black Ops II, published by Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc.
