Black Ops III Gets Nuk3town, A Totally Reimagined Nuketown
Yes, it's coming back. But like it or not, it has received a definite face-lift.
We'd heard rumors that the Call of Duty fan-favorite multiplayer map, Nuketown, would return in this year's Black Ops III. Now, developer Treyarch and publisher Activision have confirmed that this is true, but changes are afoot.
They've completely reworked the Nuketown map; it's now called "Nuk3town" and it will try to take advantage of the new entry's fresh movement mechanics. Said Treyarch boss Mark Lamia:
"We carefully adapted the design of the map to make sure that it fit with our new movement system, but to also make sure that we retained the spirit and the fun that made fans fall in love with it in the first place."
Nuke3town will be available with launch copies of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC copies on November 6 and if you're wondering, no, it will not be available in the PS3 and Xbox 360 iterations. Just another reason to have one of the new consoles, right?
For a little background, Nuketown was originally seen in the first Black Ops game in 2010; the map then reappeared in Black Ops II a couple years later. But Nuk3town will be a whole different beast!
