Black Ops 2 map reimagined
Nuketown – the best name for a multiplayer map ever – is being reimagined and redesigned for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. This is epic news for Black Ops fans as the original Nuketown was by far the most popular of all the multiplayer maps offered. You’ll definitely want to get a shot at Nuketown 2025 – all you have to do is pre-order Black Ops II. When your pre-ordered copy arrives after the game’s release on November 13th, you will get the downloadable map absolutely free – it couldn’t be simpler!
Studio Head of Treyarch, Mark Lamia, explains the decision to bring back a legend.
“Multiplayer fans of Call of Duty: Black Ops LOVE Nuketown”. “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.”
November just can’t come soon enough but while we wait, we can imagine the word NUKETOWN being said in a loud voice. Put in a trailer, the word should be written in big bullet-holed letters that appear out of a massive explosion and zoom toward the screen. A gruff voiced man then says “Nuketown 2025″. It is followed by a BOOM and several more explosions.
NUKETOWN REIMAGINED FOR CALL OF DUTY®: BLACK OPS II
