Black Ops 2 Nuketown 2025 eye candy disappoints
A recent image (postcard) has been released that is a teaser to the upcoming Black Ops 2 Nuketown 2025 map, which as we know will be made available (for free) to those who pre-order the game. We had hoped that Treyarch would release more than one image, but looking at the image it might not be as futuristic as some fans had hoped for.
Personally we don’t think that the layout of the map will change that much, because while a few gamers did not warm to the map, most of them thought that it played pretty well. Because it is called 2025 we had assumed that they would update it with a more near-future look, but the postcard seems to dispel those hopes.
We shouldn’t read too much into this image as it is only a postcard for Black Ops 2 Nuketown 2025, there’s a good chance that this doesn’t even represent the map, which as you know there will also be a zombies version as well. We’d like to know if you would rather the map be the same size as the previous version, or if you would prefer it to be much larger?
There is also the matter of Easter Eggs because there was a bunch of them in the previous version of this map, so it’s hoped that Treyarch will make even more available. Going back to the more futuristic setting with this map, it’s almost certain that it will be a little more modern than the previous version because of Treyarch saying sometime back that it would represent the time-frame of the Black Ops 2 setting, so maybe this disappointment is a little premature?
Not only will Nuketown 2025 be free to those who pre-order the standard version from selected stores, but also with the Black Ops 2 Hardened Edition and Prestige Edition. As you know there is to be a Black Ops 2 Declassified version for the Vita and we find it strange that there is to be no Zombies mode, as the developer has decided to put more effort into the multiplayer aspect of the game instead. Do you feel that this could affect sales of not only the Vita version of this title but also the handheld games console as well?
In the past a new Call of Duty title has broken sales records year-on-year, but could this be a different case considering Halo 4 will be released around the same period as well. Okay, we know that Black Ops 2 will have a larger install base, but we also know that many gamers who would normally purchase a new COD title each year might hold off and spend that cash on the much more anticipated new Halo title instead?
