Activision has officially confirmed the rumors of Nuketown making a return in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. The multiplayer map, from the first Black Ops, will be re-imagined for Treyarch’s latest entry.
Nuketown 2025 is available to everyone who pre-orders the game at participating retailers, none were specifically mentioned, and will be made available to download once the game launches. The pre-order deal was spotted at GAME in the U.K. and at an Irish retailer last week, so expect those to be part of the offer.
“Multiplayer fans of Call of Duty: Black Ops LOVE Nuketown,” said Treyarch’s Mark Lamia. “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.”
