Black Ops 2′s Nuketown 2025 Free to Download For Everyone (Xbox) From Tomorrow

Yes, that’s right. From tomorrow (Wednesday, March 13), all Black Ops 2 players on the Xbox will be able to download Nuketown 2025 – previously a pre-order bonus map – for free, nout, zilch, nada!

That’s not all, though. New, optional in-game purchases called Micro Items will also be added tomorrow. Here is the run-down.

Personalization Packs

Each themed pack contains a unique weapon camo, three reticles (one each for the Reflex, EO Tech, and ACOG sights), and a custom player Calling Card. They’ll set you back 160 MS Points per pack.

Here is the full list of new Black Ops 2 camo included in the personalization packs:

  • Jungle Warfare
  • Benjamins
  • Dia de Muertos
  • Graffiti
  • Kawaii
  • Party Rock
  • Zombies
  • Viper
  • Bacon

Nuketown Zombies
If you didn’t get a Hardened or Care Package limited edition of Black Ops 2, you didn’t have access to the Nuketown Zombies map. Now you can buy it for 400 MS Points.

Extra Slots Pack
You can now get 10 more Create a Class slots, giving you 20 total if you’ve gone all the way up to Prestige Master. You also get significantly expanded media storage, allowing you to archive 20 more emblems, 32 more films and 40 more screenshots for 160 MS Points.

Flags of the World Calling Card Packs
These packs include national flag-themed Calling Cards from countries around the world. Packs are divided by geographical region and costs 80 MS Points per region pack.

Unfortunately, these additions will be available on Xbox first. Keep any eye on BlackOpsBlog for the release date for other platforms.

      the reason that xbox gets updates and map packs faster is because the users (such as myself) pay for xbox live which Microsoft thinks that if people pay then they should be satisfied. and faster updates is one of the many things that certainly satisfy me.

    Is this the reason the reticles disappeared of the sniper rifles?

    Since I didn’t get the hardened edition and preordered it, and I also missed the event on Wednesday. If I wait like one month, will i still be able to download Nuketown 2025 for free?

    Uhhh, yeah soo all these people are downloading the free nuketown 2025 map and you idiots made it so jacked up that when you download it and go to play it, it wont let you. You guys really screwed up this black ops, from the crappy spawn points, to the s**tty downloads that dont even work.
