Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Release Date - Nuketown Zombies Added to Season Pass
What once only included four map packs and some multiplayer content, the Season Pass for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 content has been amended to include the flesh eating hordes for the re-worked Nuketown map.
While the map will release for Xbox 360 versions of Black Ops 2 in December, the timing for the PC and PlayStation 3 versions of the Season Pass has not yet been confirmed.
Treyarch first announced the Nuketown 2025 map as being available through pre-order of the special editions back in July. Translation, if you're all set to get the "Hardened" or "Care Package" editions, you get the map. And the map will also be available cross-platform, so there won't be any of that exclusive-access-30-day-window nonsense.
The map is a remake of the Nuketown map which first appeared in Call of Duty: Black Ops. One of the smallest maps, it focused on close quarters combat, and was a bit claustrophobic. Despite the small adjustments to the new map, combat likely won't change too much in the "new" map. Nuketown 2025 will also feature as a bonus map in Black Ops 2's zombie mode, which is great for any zombie fans who like the old '50's look.
Treyarch and Activision have previously announced that anyone who has pre-ordered the game will also get access to a double XP weekend on November 16. So not only will it give players a nice little boost, but it's a fitting way to celebrate the game's launch.
The Season Pass goes for about $50, and provides a small discount on four planned DLC map packs in addition to the Nuketown content.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is out for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on Nov. 13. The title will also be released eventually on Nintendo's upcoming console, the Wii U.
