  • Koruptional

    what if i dont pre-order? will it be released?

    • The Flash

      more than likely, but you might aswell pre-order if you plan on getting it, besides its free

    • No official confirmation on this. I tried asking Dan Amrich, he only pointed me to the FAQ above.

  • Nikzvby

    Lol its basically all the same questions, the real question is, WILL you get it later on if u havent pre-ordered BO2

    • Neonpantha2996

      This map better better be free for elite premium members. I purchased elite premium thinking that all cod dlc would be free. They can’t just rip us off and make us waste $50. I will definitely not buy elite again if this is the way it is gonna be.

      • sk8ergio99

        nope its no part of Activision’s CoD Elite only if you pre-order it.

  • The Flash

    yes this means i’ll still get it, i pre-ordered upon announcement on amazon and its available to all who pre-order

  • Transformers2fan

    gonna have to download it? on my ps3 downloading a map pack will take about 6 or 8 hours.. since this is 1 map hopefully it will take less. really want to enjoy playing black ops 2 on release date rather then waiting for nuketown 2025 to download. but very excited for this 😀

    • D:

      Jesus, how can you even play online with speeds like that!? D:

  • i want to wait for special edition including all DLC’s and the Elite 2,0 will i get the map in Special Or Hardened edition??? i dont want to preorder now.

  • Boris Guyon-Pelfrene

    And for people with ELITE?

    • Doesn’t matter. Free or Premium get it on 11/13/12

  • Guest

    So If You Don’t PreOrder BO2 then you wont be able to get Nuketown 2025?

    • The Flash

      you will get it late and you’ll have to pay

  • bobshi

    Yep. The main question we want answered is how can I get it if I don’t pre order.

    In the UK on launch day you can pick up the game for £30 from the supermarket. But the pre-order price is £43-45.

    If this is downloadable for a few quid then it isn’t worth pre-ordering.

    In addition, Hardened edition? I don’t want to pre-order if that is available.

    • As of RIGHT now, ATVI isn’t saying what happens if you don’t preorder. But if they do release after, it definitely will not be free.

      Also you can upgrade your preorder to Hardened at anytime. Contact your retailer

  • will it be free?

    • If you preorder the game

      • but if you dont ? how will you get it will it be like a mapp pacck or just free?

        • The Flash

          standalone release later in the year and you’ll have to pay, it’ll probably work similarly to the Zombie maps for Black ops

  • Sonic

    I hope my Elite premium subscription can “pay for itself” since I can’t preorder (in my country…)

    • wasda

      Me too, I think it will be on hardened edition

    • Nuketown 2025 will NOT be part of ELITE. It is preorder only. ATVI might release it after launch for a purchase on your platform, but no confirmation yet

    • Neonpantha2996

      This better come with elite premium. I bought elite because apparently ALL cod dlc would be free with premium. I shouldnt have to pre order a game for 60 dollars when I already payed 50 dollars in advance.

  • Fakes Dot Com

    I per ordered yes but how will it work? Do they go oh yes u pre ordered and they will give u a special copy or will,the dlc b on the receipt ?????????

    • The Flash

      you’ll get a code that will enable you to download on release day, or whenever you get it

      • Fakes Dot Com


  • What about people who have elite, and we got and extra month because of the glitches of cod elite, will we get it even if we dont pre-order it, and buy it after its released?

    • Preorder has nothing to do w/ ELITE. You must preorder BO2 to get Nuketown 2025 as of now. ATVI isn’t willing to say if they will release it for purchase later on. It won’t be free if you don’t preorder. This map is not part of ELITE Content Season, or part of your membership.

      • Richard Miller

        Of course they’ll release it for purchase, for two reasons. 1) There will be an epic backlash from people who didn’t preorder if they don’t. 2) and they will missing out on x amount of dollars from post-launch purchases, and activision never misses a chance to make money.

      • oh rite, k thnx

  • hmm .. I preordered BO2 at a local store here in germany, I hope I get it. I didn’t get the mw3 prestige token 🙁

    • Fakes Dot Com

      The offer ended today sorry buddy

      • You will get Nuketown 2025, but the prestige token offer expired.

  • Beylul

    When will this Nuketown special end?

    • No end date announced yet.

  • Battlefield3

    In the FAQ it says that if u pre ordered black ops 2 from the first time u could even pre ordet it (in may) and u get the poster now u also get black ops 2 2025 nuketown. For people whos asking about it
