Nuketown Zombies is now available for Xbox 360!

If you opted to purchase the Black Ops II Season Pass then you’ll be happy to know that the Nuketown Zombies map is now available for download (If you are on Xbox 360).

Other platforms will get the content around the same date in January, this is the standard time delay between the 360 release and other platforms.

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 / £31.00 and save $10 if you were to purchase them all 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 will likely be released in the first Black Ops 2 map pack.

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?
