Check out the official press release from Aspyr:

Aspyr Media, Inc., the leader in Mac game publishing, announced today that Activision Publishing, Inc.’s record-setting Call of Duty®: Black Ops will be coming to the Mac.

Treyarch has created a masterpiece and we are thrilled to launch later this year,” said Ted Staloch, Aspyr’s Executive Vice President.

Call of Duty: Black Ops takes players to conflicts across the globe as elite black operations forces fight in the deniable operations and secret wars that occurred under the veil of the Cold War. Featuring an adrenaline-pumping single-player campaign, out-of-this-world Zombies co-operative game mode, and an incredibly deep multiplayer experience, Call of Duty: Black Ops delivers the complete Call of Duty experience with amazing enhanced graphics, streaming texture technology, and superior lighting effects for the most immersive and cinematic action.

Features:

  • The hallmark intensity of Call of Duty returns with a cinematically intense single-player campaign that takes players deep behind enemy lines as an elite Black Ops soldier engaging in covert warfare, classified operations, and explosive conflicts across the globe.
  • ZOMBIES! For the first time on the Mac, fight to survive in one of the most thrilling and critically acclaimed co-op experiences in gaming.
  • Expanding on the series’ ultimate multiplayer experience, Call of Duty: Black Ops takes competitive play to new heights. Expect the fast-paced, action-packed combat you love with more features than ever before:
    • All new Killstreaks including Napalm Strikes, the remote controlled explosive device (RC Car), and controllable helicopters.
    • Customize the look of your soldiers with a variety of face paints, gun camos, and equipment options.
    • Jump into Combat Training and hone your tactics against A.I. bots in both Free-For-All and Team Deathmatch game modes.
  • First Strike! Escalation! Annihilation! Rezurrection! All four packs of Call of Duty: Black Ops DLC are scheduled to arrive on the Mac later this year. More details to be released soon.

In the meantime, to celebrate this historic announcement, Aspyr is discounting all Call of Duty Mac games, including the critically acclaimed Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. All games can be had for 50% off the normal price at the Mac App Store, Aspyr’s GameAgent Store, and through participating retailers. The promo will last through July 4. Happy gaming!

NukeTown 2025 Retail Banner

Pre-Order Black Ops 2 via GAME and get “Nuketown 2025″ bonus map!

GAME in the UK has started taking pre-orders for Black Ops 2 for its release on the 13th of November and doing so will earn you a little bonus…

Check out the picture below of one of their promotional banners teasing “Nuketown 2025″ along with the strapline “Relive the close quarters chaos of this classic fan-favourite map, reimagined in a visionary depection of the “Model home of the future”.

NukeTown was a brilliant map from the original Black Ops and it would be a wecome addition to Black Ops 2 with a complete re-skin.

This free map does however raise questions about how the whole DLC system will work for Black Ops 2… With ELITE being a large part of Call of Duty it is more than likely there there will be content drops like there have been with Modern Warfare 3.

This free map will completely split the community at the release of the game however between those who pre-ordered the game and those who didn’t. Perhaps the NukeTown 2025 map will be released a week later or something similar after the release so that everyone has the chance to get their hands on it.

(Via CharlieIntel) We’ll have to wait and see how the DLC system will work for Black Ops 2 and this free map, will this make your more inclined to pre-order?
