Black Ops 2 Zombies Map Coming For Season Pass Holders

The Black Ops 2 Zombies mode has been keeping players glued to their screens for days since its Nov. 13 release.  Some are even calling in sick from work and school to spend as much time as they can on the newest Call of Duty title.  For those who can’t get their fill of shooting zombies in the head and repairing barricades, be prepared for the arrival of a new zombies map.

Treyarch and Activision have announced that Call of Duty fans who have purchased the DLC Season Pass will gain access to the Nuketown Zombies bonus map.  Nuketown Zombies is more or less identical to the extremely popular multiplayer map from the original Black Ops; the difference here, however, is that the map takes place after the nuke exploded so all the familiar routes are now blocked by debris.  Initially, the map was only going to be available for those who purchased the Hardened Edition or “Care Package” (or Digital Deluxe edition for PC gamers) versions of Black Ops 2.  Those players gained access to the exclusive map on the game’s release day.

[adsense250itp]According to Activision the “overwhelming amount of enthusiasm demonstrated by the Call of Duty community over Treyarch’s Zombies mode” inspired the inclusion of the map for Season Pass holders.  The Nuketown Zombies map will be available in December as a piece of bonus content (along with an additional exclusive in-game calling card).  The catch for some players, though, is that the map will be available for Xbox 360 players first.  Other platforms will obviously follow but no clear release has been given–so it could be after December for PS3 and PC owners.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC Season Pass follows the recent trend of DLC passes that many big  budget games have been using.  Gamers who invest in a season pass are usually treated to all bonus downloadable content released over the course of a game at a price cheaper than if they were to buy all content individually.  On the other hand, some are nervous about paying for content that hasn’t been released yet.  Regardless, those who purchase the pass for Black Ops 2 will be treated to four DLC map packs for the price of $49.99.  Since each individual pack will cost $14.99, the season pass would save players $10.

Whether the news of the Nuketown Zombies map excites or underwhelms is more than likely dependent upon your enjoyment of the Zombies mode.  While some gamers stick exclusively to the competitive multiplayer, to not experience the Zombies mode would be to miss out on a fun game mode.  Ever since Treyarch introduced the mode in Call of Duty: World at War, it has only gotten better.  Black Ops 2 Zombies mode  adds many new improvements that makes it the most varied and best yet.

    I dont know what you guys are talking about… I’ve loved zombies ever since it came out in WAW, and even more in BO1… this zombies mode SUCKS!!!!! they took out ALL of the challenge, theres almost NO doors to unlock… all 3 of their maps put together equals only a little bigger of a map than kino der toten.. it’s pathetic. These lines of fire? GAY. the only thing they did right is allowing you to start at a higher level, which I wish they at least let you start at an autosaved point in kino at level 5… after you bang through 40-50 levels of that and get killed by something stupid the last thing I wanted to do was start on level 1 again lol.

    • Off with their heads

      I took it to treyarch twitter account and let them know how bad zombies sucked ass they must have been sober and made this shitty game mode plz treyarch smoke a blunt and make a decent zombie mode on the next dlc I’d rather wake up with a hangover and sit next to a temp drill instead of going through 1 round of BO2 zombies!!!!

    chris, you just dont get the game. all the old maps are in tranzit, you have to think outside the bus

    • reece

      im saving up to get this game would u recommened me getting hardened edition for nuketown zombies or buy the season pass cause i really want the game but everyone keeps telling me not to buy it its crap and nuketown zombies is shit but it looks gd to me what should i do or just buy standered you know mate

      • DaemonSoul

        If it looks good to you who cares about what others say?Personally i liked everything in the game,overall it’s better than MW3.

      • Ben Sheene

        reece, On the whole I would recommend the game. You should check out my review on the website. It does a lot of great things. As for the extra money for either a season pass or hardened edition that is up to you. The season pass will give you all the maps down the line and the hardened edition won’t.
