Update: Black Ops 4‘s Nuketown now has a trailer, showing off the new aesthetic teased by the original Twitter post. This is the most drastic reimagining Nuketown has ever undergone, as its snow and architecture are more reminiscent of Russia than any previous Nuketown map. The arena’s only relation to previous maps is its physical layout and size, but even that has at least one notable change, with a central missile silo that appears to slowly initiate a launch sequence over the course of the match.
Original Story: Treyarch Studio’s newest iteration of Nuketown finally has a date for its Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launch.
The map’s launch date was revealed in a post on the official Call of Duty Twitter account, dating it for November 13th. The map will launch first on PS4, with the Xbox One and PC versions expected to drop one week after. Unlike previous Nuketowns, this new map appears to be going for a wintery Russian theme, based on the embedded video and the “welcome back” caption written in Russian.

Nuketown will be added to Black Ops 4 in a free update, bringing the base game’s total map count to 15. In Black Ops II, Nuketown also doubled as a Zombies map, but there is no word yet if the same will be true for Black Ops 4.
In other Black Ops 4 news, the shooter was recently hit with a sizable update, removing 9-bangs from Blackout, rebalancing a host of multiplayer weapons, introducing the Blightfather boss zombie into Blackout, and more.
