Well that's really lame. I didn't get a chance to play the map. I some how even though I did not preorder the game, the box came with a code inside the access Nuketown 2025.
I thought ONLY through preordering you could play the map? Correct me if I'm wrong but that's how I thought this worked. So much for the people who preorder getting something special.
Definitely the worst results of a pre-order so far the generation for me.
I didn't even get to fucking play it.

This sound familiar, though I wont go there (considering the backlash seems unanimous here). Instead I'll pose a question. Is this a joke, their idea of a practical joke?! I don't even have the game, but that's just WRONG
I personally wish the map was mixed in with the maps in Black ops 2. while this does suck, I am just going to sit back and eat some popcorn and watch this all go down. I can already tell Activision is going to be going to court numerous times because of this. lolz
Well looks like they won't be getting my $50+ dollars on DLC this year.
This has to be illegal in some way, I remember at the end of pretty much every BO2 commercial I saw they listed how if you preorder you got that map. To turn around a few days after release and pull it and make it out to be some special event cant be legal o.O
I'm a minority but I personally do not care.
I never paid extra for Nuketown 2025 anyway and I can still play it if I want to really badly anyway, custom games with friends.
I pre-ordered the game to get it day 1, but I do see why others are upset.
I guess me never liking Nuketown because of all the camping was probably the reason.
Oh you guys, dont you know your being so hard on poor old activision. Theys is destitute.....
This is infact Acitivisons headquarters security camera footage..
Update: David Vonderhaar: "You killed the messenger, but I still fight for the users. RT to#bringbackNuketown2025 and we will add to a small maps moshpit."
This sucks! I played nuketown all weekend and had a great time. I was going to order the seasons pass but not anymore, if they can remove a pre-order map for no reason then they can do the same for future DLC maps.
Well this is bullshit. I didn't even get the zombie version of the map and now I can't play the competitive version of it even though it was a preorder "BONUS" for me?
Fuck you Activision.
As F34R said it is the principle. I'm sure I wouldn't be so put off if they removed it, explained the reason and issued an apology. But they just tried to sneak it out and that always sends the wrong message.
Black Ops 2 'Nuketown 2025' playlist removed, outcry gets it added to new bonus playlist

Earlier today, Treyarch pulled the popular Nuketown 2025 24/7 playlist in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 citing the dedicated rotation of modes on the map was temporary.
"Double XP weekend is official over. That means Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 is as well. I know. Right? Don't kill the messenger," Game Design Director David Vonderhaar wrote on Twitter. But an outcry of fans for the pre-order and Collector's Edition map – a re-imagining of the original Black Ops arena – have made Treyarch think twice.
Moments ago an update was sent to Black Ops 2 adding a new playlist, dubbed "Bonus." The mode within the playlist, "Chaos Moshpit," notes that selecting this playlist will rotate "small maps with a variety of game modes," including Nuketown 2025.
"Chaos Moshpit" also includes the maps Carrier, Cargo, Express, Hijacked, Slums, and Standoff, Vonderhaar tweeted.
So, get your Nuketown on, folks!
Update: A tweet from Treyarch confirms the playlist should go out to all versions of Black Ops 2. The PC version is planned for tomorrow.
Glad they added it back. They were indeed providing false advertising had they kept the maps removed. Not to mention, when I put my Nuketown key in to download it, it was a 131mb download. So here I sit with Nuketown on my hard drive that I bought, but can't use unless I do a custom game with friends?
It's hard to believe there are people sitting around a conference table coming up with these ideas? I mean, really, think about this. If that round table consisted of actual gamers, half the digital shit that is happening today wouldn't happen. Granted, I know there is a job to get profits, and those people need to be listened to. But honestly, no TRUE gamer on the staff of Treyarch would dangle a carrot like this.
At least it's coming back. I wonder what they gained from pulling it in the first place?
I don't see the problem in people who were gaining loads of xp?Quote:
People are saying you gain XP too fast, making you prestige too fast. People would just play that map to prestige. If they truly wanted to solve that issue, they could do like they did with the combat training. After level 10, they could make Nuketown half the XP points.
Aint played cod in a while, is that the really small map where you can get shit loads of kills?
Got a garden at the back, 2 or 3 houses where you can go upstairs and some sorta vehicle in the middle?
