Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War leak shows off neon Nuketown

Where’s Ryan Gosling?

Fans of the Call of Duty sub-series Black Ops will be more than familiar with the multiplayer map that is Nuketown. Since its initial appearance in the founding Black Ops title, this small, space-age locale has been the site of many a fast-paced, past-dying brawl for all in each iteration of the Black Ops universe.

While it’s no surprise that Nuketown will be soon returning once again for the recently launched Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, what is surprising is not only have some players already cheesed their way into this digital slice of old-school Americana, but they have also already uncovered an Easter Egg within it. The world moves fast.

As discovered by player “PimpOutMyPC” – who claims they accidentally found their way into the unreleased map via a glitch in a custom game – shooting the heads off of all the creepy mannequins located around new Nuketown drops the environment into a cool, neon, new-wave vibe, complete with sexy synth soundtrack. PimpOutMyPC captured footage of the Drive-style world in action, which you can check out in the tweet below. It’s pretty dang funky.
