'Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4' Nuketown Map Releases This Week, Kind Of
Online-only Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII is set and ready to welcome fan favourite Nuketown to it's roster of multiplayer maps. Well, for PS4 anyway.
Good ol' Nuketown has featured in every Black Ops title so far - with each release boasting slightly different aesthetics - even dabbling in its ever-evolving Zombies mode.
It's actually made an appearance in Black Ops IIII already, as Blackout's Nuketown Island, but the true Nuketown map will roll out on 13 November for PS4 users - one day before the true true Nuketown map, Fallout 76.
Strangely, there's no indication for when Xbox One and PC players can jump into Nuketown, but it'll most likely be one week after their PS4 counterparts. Damn exclusivity periods.
At least it's not something you paid for; as promised by Activision and Treyarch, the iconic location will be completely free to access. No purchase is necessary, no download is required, just do a quick update and Nuketown is yours forever.
It will be the 15th map available in Black Ops IIII so far, with 14 coming alongside the initial game. Future DLC (only available through the season pass, AKA Black Ops Pass) will offer 12 more multiplayer maps, and they'll roll out over the next year or so.
If you've not done the math already, that's an impressive 27 maps all together - and that's before you get to other game modes. Where's my list...
Blackout's huge map homes around 13 separate locations, and then Zombies has a handful of dedicated areas for itself. More than enough places to get lost in.
I've not even managed to work around Black Ops IIII's first 14 maps yet, you know, with the arrival of Red Dead 2, 76's BETA, and a bunch of other time-consuming games. I think I'll be passing on the season pass this year, then.
What do you think about this news? Are you looking forward to Nuketown? Have you bought the season pass? Let us know.
