'Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4' Will Feature Revamped Nuketown Map
| Last updated
Call Of Duty fans rejoice! At a multiplayer livestream earlier today, the game's developer, Treyarch, showed off new footage from the forthcoming Black Ops 4 installment.
While that's exciting enough in its own right - because who doesn't love whiling away the hours playing Call Of Duty? - one announcement in particular has got our heads spinning with anticipation.
What is it, you ask? Well, we'll tell you. The game's makers are bringing back a number of classic Black Ops maps. Jungle, Slums, Summit and Firing Range have all been rebuilt for Black Ops 4.
Which is awesome. We just wish they'd also brought back Nuketown, which was featured in the original Black Ops and its two sequels. Oh, that's right - THEY BLOODY WELL ARE. We kind of gave it away in the title of this article though, didn't we?
It won't be available till November, mind, when the map will be launched for free for all players, but at the rate this year is going, that's almost like tomorrow.
Nuketown, of course, is one of the smallest maps in the Call Of Duty series and as such has a heavy emphasis on close-quarters combat - you know, for those times when you want to see your gruesome kills up close and personal. Hey, it's just a game.
The map is based on military testing grounds that were in turn based on typical 1950s US suburbs, and used to highlight the effects of nuclear weapons on a residential area. You know, like at the start of Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, the not-so-good 2008 film where Harrison Ford survives a nuclear test by hiding in a fridge. Yeah, alright mate.
But we digress. Nuketown is awesome and it's very exciting that a new version of it is going to be in Black Ops 4, because there's nothing like slaughtering your foes in a picture-perfect but abandoned (and therefore incredibly creepy) residential area that's stuck in the 1950s.
The game itself launches on 12 October, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with the Nuketown map coming a few weeks later. But you know it'll be absolutely worth the wait.
