Last week we told you that a remake of the popular Nuketown map was coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Now, Activision has made things official, posting a Nuketown 2025 FAQ and listing permutations for those who have already pre-ordered the game.
If you didn’t already know, Nuketown 2025 is going to be a free download for those that pre-order the game at participating retailers. At the moment, there seems to be some confusion as to whether those who have already pre-ordered the game will still get the map or not.
Activision hasn’t exactly made this crystal clear in their FAQ either, but it looks like you’ll still be getting a download code regardless of where you got the game from. The good news is that Nuketown 2025 won’t be exclusive to the Xbox 360 either – you can get it for free by pre-ordering the PS3 or PC version as well.
Going back to the FAQ though, we’ve noticed that Activision seems to have contradicted themselves somewhat. In their first point they clearly state the following for those that have already ordered the game:
”If you already pre-ordered the game then you’re all set, and you will be able to download the bonus map when Call of Duty: Black Ops II launches.”
However, if you scroll down the FAQ to the last question, they say something completely different in relation to exactly the same question. If you have already pre-ordered the game, Activision say this at the bottom:
”No need to worry. Those who have already pre-ordered will be able to purchase a launch unit of Call of Duty: Black Ops II that will include the Nuketown 2025 downloadable bonus map.”
What exactly does ‘purchasing a launch unit’ mean? That sounds pretty sneaky in our opinion, when really they could have made things a lot more easier for fans to understand. We’re guessing that you’ll get the download code for Nuketown 2025 regardless, so perhaps there’s no need to worry about this dodgy wording.
Have you already ordered Black Ops 2?
