Nuketown Is Coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Fan Favorite Map Is Set to Release in Just a Few Days

The release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War marks the fifth entry in the Black Ops series. If you’ve been following the series since the original release of Call of Duty: Black Ops in 2010, then you are probably pretty aware of the iconic Nuketown map. You might recognize it from the first game, Black Ops…and the second game, Black Ops II… As well as Black Ops III, and Black Ops 4. Okay, so Nuketown is a bit of a staple in the Black Ops series so it was only a matter of time before Cold War got its own version of the map.

While the general premise and layout mostly stay the same from iteration to iteration, each game adds a new aesthetic when remaking the classic map. Now, fans have Nuketown ’84 to look forward to in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

While the original Nuketown had more of a quaint, Subarian aesthetic, Nuketown ’84 is a bit of a rougher scene. The map has evolved with each new game with Black Ops II‘s Nuketown being a close copy of the original. Black Ops III‘s Nuk3town is a much more futuristic take on the map, having been redesigned to fit the game’s new aesthetic and movement options. Black Ops 4 covers the map in a lovely blanket of snow–perfect for killing your friends. Finally, Cold War’s take on the map sets you in a desert climate, giving the closest feel to a traditional war zone out of the bunch.

Nuketown ’84 is set to make it’s Cold War debut on November 24th. Players who already own the game, or purchase it before December 4th, will get the new map for free. Anyone picking up the game after that will have to pay for the DLC. Thinking about picking up Cold War? Well, now’s the time.
