Nuketown Returns in Black Ops Cold War Today with Double XP Week
Nuketown returns today as Nuketown '84, the first piece of free content planned for Call of Duy: Black Ops - Cold War
Nuketown, a staple map in any Treyarch developed Call of Duty title since 2010’s Call of Duty: Black Ops, is once again working its way into map rotation today. The map will be available for all Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War players at 10 AM PST or 1 PM EST.
As an added bonus, and some extra incentive to spend your extra time this week playing Black Ops – Cold War‘s classic, arcade-y multiplayer, the game will also be dishing out double XP until November 30. Nuketown ’84, this variant of the classic map, is the first free piece of content planned for Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War, with roadmaps showing more on the way. As is the usual fashion, players looking to hop right into the new map will be able to find a dedicated 24/7 Nuketown ’84 playlist.
Don’t expect anything new with this iteration of Nuketown. Black Ops – Cold War is a return to classic Call of Duty multiplayer, and that’s especially true for the game’s map designs. Nuketown ’84 looks just as fast-paced, frantic and open as it did when it made its first appearance.
There is one downside to Nuketown ’84’s addition though: filesize. While Black Ops – Cold War doesn’t boast an enormous filesize, the continuous stream of patches and free content updates, including maps like Nuketown ’84, will eat up more and more of player’s hard drives or SSDs. On PC this isn’t an enormous issue; memory isn’t excessively expensive and is easy to install. Consoles on the other hand have exorbitant costs for storage solutions, and in the PS5’s case, there is currently no option for storage expansion. Only time will tell how much drive space Black Ops – Cold War will eat up.
