Black Ops 2 Nuketown Zombies Map Will Be Available to Download For Season Pass Holders

Activision have announced that due to “overwhelming community feedback” Black Ops 2′s Nuketown Zombies map will be available to download as DLC in December for those who hold a Season Pass.

Previously only available to those who purchased the Hardened or Care Package Edition of Black Ops 2, the Nuketown Zombies map will be made available in December as bonus content for those who pre-purchase Black Ops 2 DLC with a Season Pass.

Here is the press release:

In response to the overwhelming amount of enthusiasm demonstrated by the Call of Duty community over Treyarch’s Zombies mode, we’re happy to announce that – in addition to including it in the Black Ops 2 Collector’s Editions – the Nuketown Zombies map will be made available as a piece of bonus content for the Black Ops 2 DLC Season Pass in December.

Fans who purchase the Black Ops 2 DLC Season Pass not only get all four epic DLC Map Packs for the discounted suggested retail price of $49.99, but they also get access to the Nuketown Zombies bonus map – available for Xbox 360 first in December with other platforms to follow, plus an exclusive in-game calling card.

For those picking up the CE version of Black Ops 2, the Nuketown Zombies map will be available exclusively starting tomorrow, before it becomes available for Season Pass holders in December.

Black Ops 2 is merely hours away, so we can’t wait for you to pick up and start playing, and look forward to seeing you online.

    mixed feelings on this. its good that everyone gets it, but half the reason i got the special edition was for the “exclusive” maps. now everyone gets em? that a pretty cheap sales tactic, borderline false advertising

        They announced months ago that cod elite was going to be free for black ops2. If you wanted ti continue getting the oremium service for mw3 then you wouls gave to pay to extend it when it expired. Next time try spending a littLe time reading and maybe you know whats going on idiot.

    I have to say Treyarch are far superior to Infinity Ward but this news has got me thoroughly pissed off. It is good that everyone will be able to Access Nuketown if they bought a Season Pass. I’m all for fairness and i was pissed off when i had to wait for the Classic maps on Black Ops 1.

    What pisses me off is one of the main swaying factors of me buying the Hardened Edition was the “Exclusive” Nuketown and Nuketown Zombies maps.

    So why call something exclusive, if everyone will be able to get a hold of it?We all know most people didn’t buy the Hardened Edition for the coins!!!

    Cheap, deceptive tactics used to flaunt a more expensive version of the game.If i’d known that i would have saved myself the money and bought the normal version.

      MW2 was broken for the first few months. The consensus throuout the community is that 3arch is superior to IF since Blops came out. You are the jackass for thinking your opinion is everyone’s opinion. Maybe you need to do a little research before you blow up and look like a dumbass on a forum for a 3arch game

    what you need to realize is that the season pass is the same price as the difference between the standard game and the hardened edition. so really this is just for people who realized they should have bought the hardened edition.

    some of you guys are stupid. if you actually took time and read, treyarch didnt decide to release nuketown zombies to season pass till after the game was ready for sale. they didnt expect such a fanbase for it. yes ok maybe that means you blew a bunch of money on nothingbut most people as like myself didnt know about the season pass unlocks till after we bought the damn game. so dont go complaining till youve read al the facts

    At the end of the day i aint really fussed ive got the game wether it is the hardend or the normal all i know is that i will be buying the Season pass to get nuketown zombies in december all you need to do is get the season pass then you get zombies thats all that counts. Plus if you did buy the hardend edition then you do get some things extra like 2 day trial, 1000 MS Points and the avatar props. Either way im not bothered i just play the game…

      Read my friend, they released information stating that “Nuketown Zombies will be available in December first ON xbox then other platforms following. So, be patient my friend you will get your maps :)

      as for those complaining about spending the extra money. Here is what you do, wait until the day before the release, make sure you read up on the latest news about the game and then decide if you want the special edition or the regular edition, it will save you time/money and save me the irritation of reading posts where people complain after they are given a GREAT game.

      @3Arch, thank you very much for the information, thank you for the improved game, much better than Black Ops 1. I can’t wait to see what else you guys can come up with! Just make sure it has zombies!!!! :D

    I think oneprice with nuketown zombies and multiplayer map included with the original game would save all this BS then add maps for dlc at Christmas simple right all it’s for is to suck money off of gamers all about profits. Not right and very shady

    Those who were complaining didn’t read. This is merely for Nuketown Zombies which you DIDN’T get if you preordered. The only people who got Nuketown Zombies were those who rushed in and placed a preorder on the Hardened Edition or Care Package Editions which btw they didn’t announce those 2 editions until end of Auguest. I preordered back in May when the GameStop I manage didn’t have any knowledge that they had plans for other editions.

    Also within 4 days after the announcement of the 2 new editions all GameStops in the U.S. no longer took preorders on those editions. It is not someones fault that they cannot go to a store within 4 days of a announcement to manage to either upgrade their editions or place a preorder for a limited stocked item. People have lives they can’t drop everything like others can just to make a drive that is say 20-30 minutes away to just do this. And from what I heard from Corporate HQ they didn’t even make that many Hardened or Care Package Editions compared to the usual Collectors Editions they would make for other CoD games due to the late announcement of these editions.

    This is all bull*hit talk who cares about what 3arch has done all that matters is nuketown zombies is now available to everyone not just the people whove bought the hardened or care package editions! One of my pals bought the hardened edition, only to find none of us did so he was the only one playing it and was pissed that he couldnt play against us as, obviously, we didnt have it. I dont know about any of you lot but i enjoy playin zombies with people i actually know so when only one of us has a map that none of the rest of us have, its a bit annoying. Is my mate the only person thats got the hardened editon thats actually HAPPY this maps been made available to everyone? Stop pickin at s**t that dont really matter n lets play some COD!!!!!

    I’m more than excited about this one boys!! The 1st of four map pack trailors was released the other day, just watched it tonight!! It looks epic, and I cannot even wait to see what the other 3 map packs have in store!! I’m rushing out tommorow to pick up a psn card so I can purchase the season pass asap! This is a wicked deal, and makes us who are loyal to the series happier than a witch in a broom factory!! Sure you guys bought the hardened edition & that, but you also got to play nuketown zombies 2 months earlier than us on x-box & 3 months earlier than us on psn!! So atleast you guys got firsties & the resale value of you’re copies is a hell of a lot higher than ours!!! Also, to those dim witted folks, NO you cannot buy nuketown zombies as its own dlc. You either bought the hardened edition or w.e., or you bought the season pass. Those are the only ways you can have access to nuketown zombies. & unless treyarch wants to loose its loyal fanbase, then that will never change!! So hurry up kiddies!! & get the season pass TODAY!!! :D P.s. the price is more than fair considering how many maps & bonus dlc is included in each map pack!! :D
