If an image from Irish retailer Xtra-vision is any indication, the Nuketown map from Call of Duty: Black Ops will return for Treyarch’s follow-up game. A photo submitted to IGN suggests that a futuristic take on the map, dubbed “Nuketown 2025,” will be offered as a pre-order incentive for Black Ops II.
From what I recall, people seemed to dig Nuketown quite a bit, so offering it in this manner seems like a smart decision on their part, even if I do strongly dislike the concept of holding maps behind pre-orders. No word on potential retailer, region, or platform exclusivity, so we’ll see.
