Nuketown Image_resized.jpg

On a week when Nuketown 2025 was announced as a pre-order bonus for Black Ops 2, it was only right that we take a look back at the story of Nuketown.

Nuketown takes place in a nuclear test site designed to simulate a typical American neighborhood. The map itself started out as an "unofficial" project for Level Designer Adam Hoggatt, who took the idea and had a working design up and running in only two days. It was quickly a favorite among the Black Ops developers.

Nuketown would ultimately play a crucial role in the development of the game, inspiring a level of creativity that would show up time and time again in Black Ops multiplayer. The map's randomly spawning mannequins and iconic end-of-match nuke sequence led to interactive features found on other maps, such as Launch's rocket liftoff and Kowloon's zip-line.

Just as it played with the developers, Nuketown became a fan-favorite in Call of Duty®: Black Ops almost immediately after the game's release. Small and simple, yet lending itself to a variety of playstyles, the map featured the type of fast-paced action that Call of Duty® fans from around the world have come to love. The numbers don't lie, Nuketown has become the most played multiplayer map in Black Ops history.

Now reimagined in a 60's depiction of the "Model Home of the Future", Nuketown 2025 is set to take that familiar close-quarters chaos into the future.  Pre-order Call of Duty®: Black Ops II today, and look forward to some explosive action on November 13th!

I really really want to know that if I am holding off pre-ordering in the hope of a Hardened edition being revealed, will I miss out on being able to get Nuketown 2025 bundled?

they wont be having a hardened edition because they release the prizes from pre orders in 4 different waves the first being a double sided poster the second being this

Nuketown was a terrible map, why on earth would I want to play it again!? And this game better not have as crappy textures as Black Ops' multiplayer.

I loved NukeTown. It's one of my favorites.  Can't wait till the new one.

I have a question. If everyone who Pre-Ordered Black Ops II will get Nuketown 2025, then why does the information on the Second Wave say until supplies last? Or until codes last?

i dont know where to post this so im putting it here im confused sinch i pre ordered black ops 2 already i have to pay more money for me to get the nuketown map???  because thats what it says here

(No need to worry. Those who have already pre-ordered will be able to purchase a launch unit of Call of Duty: Black Ops II that will include the Nuketown 2025 downloadable bonus map). so why would i pay extra money to get what ppl are getting just for pre ordering and what was the point of me pre ordering a month ago? thanks

I don't see the big deal of why people hated Nuketown. If it's that much of a problem, when you're playing with friends, just vote for another map. If you're by yourself and it gets selected, then leave the room. Seems a lot simpler, easier and faster than coming on here to complaining about it. Personally I'm excited by the thought of Nuketown 2025 and I can't wait to play all the maps.

where you have the pre-order link, are all the retailers listed on there offering the NT 2025 offer? I pre-ordered on Amazon UK on day of announcement, but I'm unsure if I'm getting the map, the US Amazon offers it along with a wallpaper (which I have) but waiting for it  to say NT 2025 on UK version

I also have another question. If i Pre-Ordered the game at a Gamestop in the mall, and the game is released at mid-night, but the mall closes at 9, will i have to wait till they open the store again?

thats becuase black ops they idnt shave down the hitmarkers and do retextures becuase they were at a dead line and manufacturing needed to begin so yah they work n the game a year and half to 2 years i think this game is going to actualy be worth it becuase modern warfare sucks ass and this game i think is going to have great everything hirmarkers texture and balanced snipers

Look everyone, if u preorder the game u can turn ur regular preorder into the hardened edition and if u don't reorder now you will miss out on all of the bonus content such as if you haven't already preordered then you've already missed out on the free prestige token for mw3 so if u want the bonus content u gotta preorder now

Hi Im Reese Gartman, I Play Black Ops Still And Absolutly Love Nuketown Especially QuickScoping Or Hard Scoping. And Im From Houston Texas. And Would Like To Know If You Dont Pre-Order It Would You Still Get The Map? For Free. Or Will It Be In A BONUS Mappack.

I was wondering, If you dont pre-order Black Ops II (when Nuketown 2025 is available) when will it be released as a public download from DLC if it is going to be released as a DLC (like how Rezurrection DLC/Hardened/Prestige Edition for Black Ops worked)?

I dont have an answer to your question but if you do have to pay to get Nuketwon 2025, it proves that you should wait a bit, just to see what offers they bring out eg Nuketown 2025 . I was going to Pre-Order BO2 when it was available straight away but i wanted to see what Special/Limited Edition Bundles they bought out first

If anyone who works for 3arc or Activision reads this, thank you . I have an idea regarding Pre-Order Editions of Black Ops II. I call it, the "F.E.A.R." Edition (Black Ops DLC's First Strike etc.) It is a zombies Special Edition pre-order. It includes every map from zombies. even the ones brought out in DLC's, but they have their original guns example, the WaW maps will have the PPSH, PTRS etc not the guns from Black Ops/ Black Ops 2. You get a personal journal of one of the four main characters. Nikkolai, Richtofen etc but everyone gets a different journal. More community interaction . It could also have a Zombies Steel Case for Black Ops II. A couple more things could be thrown in. I dont know what though maybe a book that explains the Zombie Storyline because i know a lot of people that didnt know there was a storyline to zombies. Thats what ive thought up and i think it would be pretty cool. I know id buy it Thanks for reading

@Jahlada, preorder the regular edition and if the hardened, prestige, elite (whatever it is called) is revealed then you can just throw the money that you put on the reg edi on that one. That's what I do for every game i preorder.

i wonder what nuketown 2025 will look like.

Nuketown 2025 is a preorder bonus for july ONLY it has nothing to do with the hardened (if there is one) so if you dont pre-order in july you cant get it untill they release it to the non-pre-orderers sorry

I have a Question i pre ordered black ops 2 from game stop but have not recived any email saying i got the second wave. Will it just show up when i put in the game or what?

enidwrangler

Just order it.   If they release a "special edition" of it then the first to pre-order will get first choice to order it, incase they run out.

kodo211

depends on the mall. sometimes they do a midnight relrease but you would have to find out closer to game release.

How do you get it if you already pre ordered it?!?!?
