It was recently confirmed that the popular Nuketown multiplayer map would be making a return to Black Ops 2 as a preorder bonus for players. The remake of the map is now called Nuketown 2025 and will be based in the futuristic environment of Black Ops 2. Here is how you can get your copy of the map.
Nuketown 2025 is exclusively available for those who have preordered Black Ops 2. If you haven’t done so yet, set a preorder for your copy and you will be able to download the bonus map starting November 13th when the game releases.
According to official reports, the map will be available via preorder from various retailers. Although it has been speculated that retailer specific preorder bonuses will also be available, but this map in particular is available to everyone who preorders the game.
Nuketown 2025 is available throughout the world via selected retailers. Currently GameStop/EB and other popular retailers are part of this promotion. If you have previously preordered the game through a different retailer, you will still be liable for the bonus content.
The map will be available on November 13th, as soon as the game launches in stores. Additionally, the map is not console or platform specific, so if you are preordering your game for PC, Xbox 360 or PS3, you will still be able to download the map.
The instructions for downloading the map will be made available as the release of the game nears. This will help players understand the step by step process of downloading the map.
Activision has confirmed that the map is not disc locked or platform specific. The company has also confirmed that those who have already preordered Black Ops 2 should not worry about the retailer specific promotion. Nuketown 2025 is a universal pre-order bonus for those who have already preordered the game. However, it is unclear what will happen when the game gets retailer specific preorder bonuses.
Worst case scenario, Nuketown 2025 will end up with specific retailers starting this summer.
