Fans of the original Call of Duty Black Ops now have a bigger reason to pre-order the upcoming sequel, Black Ops II. Activision has officially confirmed that the first person shooter from developer Treyarch will include a free downloadable multiplayer map, Nuketown 2025, if people pre-order the game before its official release on November 13th.
The map is actually a remake of a popular map from the original Black Ops, Nuketown. Activision states, "An arena-style map with unique art design, Nuketown promoted the type of fast-paced action that Call of Duty fans from around the world have come to love. Now re-imagined in a 60's depiction of the 'Model Home of the Future', Nuketown 2025 is set to take that familiar close-quarters chaos into the future!"
It's likely that Activision will offer Nuketown 2025 as a paid download sometime after the launch of Black Ops II for people who didn't pre-order the game. The publisher has posted up an FAQ about the release of Nuketown 2025 (yes, it will be available on the PC version). Other retailers will have their own exclusive pre-order bonus but the Nuketown 2025 map will be available no matter where you pre-order the game,
