DevastationThe second of the four map packs for Call of Duty: Ghosts, Devastation brings four brand new multiplayer maps, a brand new SMG and the next chapter of EXTINCTION to the table.

PlayStation 4- Xbox 720

Call of Duty 2013 being developed by Neversoft (Screenshot)


A screenshot has been revealed showing a promotional poster for the next Call of Duty instalment this year teasing a release date, tag line and a brand new developer!

Neversoft has previously developed games such as Guitar Hero and the Tony Hawk games under publication from Activision.

The tagline in the image reads “Ready To Get Back To Basics?” which likely means we won’t be experiencing another futuristic addition to the series. From the image you can also tell that there isn’t any futuristic tech to see on the person wielding a pistol.

This being the year that the PlayStation 4 and the new Xbox are likely to be released means the game will almost certainly appear on the new systems.

Will this be Modern Warfare 4? I’m not so sure because previously Infinity Ward had been the only company to develop the MW series while Treyarch works on the Black Ops. Perhaps we will see a completely new franchise being created for the series, giving it a breath of fresh air!

NukeTown 2025 coming to PC & PS3 Season Pass Holders on the 17th of Jan


If you opted to purchase the Black Ops II Season Pass then you’ll be happy to know that the Nuketown Zombies map which is exclusive to Season Pass holders will be available to PC & PS3 players on the 17th of January.

Nuketown Zombies is set during the events of Moon, and after the end of the multiplayer level from the original Black Ops game. A group of radiation scientists are investigating the Nuketown remains and discover soldiers that have been revived by Element 115 from a nearby Nevada base.

The zombie soldiers attack the radiation scientists and turn them, and after receiving a distress signal, the base in Nevada sends in CIA and CDC agents to investigate. Upon arrival in Nuketown the agents lose communication with Hangar 18 and become stranded…setting the stage for Nuketown Zombies.

As you probably know the Zombies game mode in Black Ops 2 has been completely changed and makes for a much longer, engaging, fun and down right scary experience! It’s fantastic. Check out the official video for Nuketown Zombies below.

If you want Nuketown Zombies then you’ll need to purchase the Black Ops II Season Pass which is available now for $49.99 / £34.99 and save $10 if you were to purchase all Black Ops 2 DLC Map Packs individually.

Also a new feature which has been added recently to all Zombie games modes is a temporary timeout from matchmaking if you have been quitting games too often without finishing them and effectively ruining it for others. This little feature is a welcome as the Zombies game mode relies heavily on teamwork!

No word has been released regarding when Nuketown Zombies will be released for non-Season Pass holders but it seems it will remain exclusive to season pass holders only as an incentive to commit to all the map packs.

If you haven’t seen what the first map pack for Black Ops 2 will hold then take a look here, there are some great maps and DLC.
