    • TYRO

      wasn’t the ghost map skyfall or something like that for free …

      then again tbh it wasnt that good compared to the other maps they had that was fun

      • jordanxbrookes

        Free Fall is what you mean and yes it was eventually released for free back in March 2014.

      • ben wills

        Free Fall was the Nuketown 2025 of Ghosts, not the Nuketown Zombies. The Giant is like Nuketown Zombies.

      • Kevin Deng

        Atlas Gorge is for free for AW. Free Fall still isn’t free.

    • The Gaming Revolution

      the nuke town zombies map for black ops 2 (which was the special collectors edition map) cost $10 by itself so $6 is pretty cheap

      • jordanxbrookes

        Seriously? Damn. Well I had the Hardened Edition of BO2 so I already had Nuketown Zombies lol.

        • it was 400 microsoft points back in the day

      • TheDemonOfHate

        I thought it cost $5

    • RdJokr

      $5, to be exact. But yeah, $1 cheaper than this. Anyway, guess Activision’s really trying to go for the old “buy the season pass for a better price” trick. Can’t wait for people to be surprised when they see MWR released separately next year for $30.

    • shadowguy14

      It’s not really the same map at all. It’s worth $6

      • Austin Michael Titus

        it is, with hd textures. But it is pretty damn fun. only map i care for in bo3.

  • Emre

    Six dollar for one map.


    • Michael Romo

      Zombie maps are worth more. I’d pay $10 for just one. Except Tranzshit.

      • Brandon Olson

        Say that any louder and Activision might make it $10

  • It’s not like $6 is going to break the bank, but seems a bit much just for one map.

    • TheDemonOfHate

      Especially for a remake.

    • Michael Romo

      Not a zombies map. I’d pay $10 bucks for one. $6 is pretty good

      • But they come with the map packs that are $15 a piece. $10 would be a lot.

    Never Trust Activision They May Sell You As a Calling Card For $1.99 In Black Ops 3

    • Keshav Bhat


  • About time. More traffic flow in that map. I really wish they would stop this bonus DLC maps. Black Ops 1 launched with 2 zombie maps and dead ops..

  • Drank Bleach

    $6 for a remake map, nah I’m good, can’t even give it out for free, geesh.

    • BradyAlucard

      They already got money for it, too. Fucking bullshit. Atlas Gorge was a remake and it’s free.

      • CoDforever

        atlas gorge came out when nobody played the game, obviously they gotta do something to make people play that trash

      • RdJokr

        Bruh, they only made it free recently because Activision finally realized there’s no point in charging $5 for a single MP map that would ruin matchmaking heavily. Zombies maps, on the other hand, don’t ruin matchmaking, because you choose the map before you even get a lobby. As long as it doesn’t break the game in any way, Activision will continue to charge you regardless.

        • BradyAlucard

          I’ll never like DLC, because I think that it’s tainted, no matter what. Does that cloud my judgment? Probably, but one thing is for certain, is that this is a DLC that is actually worth something.

          • RdJokr

            It depends, I guess. Developers deserve to be paid for the extra work they put in for extra content, provided that it’s substantial. And $60 for the base game, frankly, isn’t always enough. Granted, with Activision’s money, they could put out free content every now and then, but sadly that’s not the case.

          • BradyAlucard

            $60 is a lot for what we get. That is incredibly expensive (but they are definitely more lengthy and arguably have more value than movies). I seriously don’t think that DLC is needed, especially because Activision makes a ton of profit annually. I don’t even think that they were that big (billionaires) until Call of Duty came about, but I’m not 100% on that.

          • RdJokr

            The consumer value does not matter. What matters is how games should be priced to cover all the development and marketing costs. And boy, does COD have a lot to pay for marketing. You don’t get those cool live-action trailers featuring huge celebrities without forking over tons of cash.

          • BradyAlucard

            Consumer value doesn’t matter? Only to publishers, probably. I guess that’s why we get online Multiplayer-only games like Overwatch (all games should have an offline mode no matter what). Consumer value definitely matters. Production value is just production value and that’s that. Games don’t mean jack shit when they have nothing to offer in terms of content. I’m glad that Activision at least puts as much consumer value as possible into CoD games, unlike Overwatch.

          • RdJokr

            I guess I should’ve worded it better. The consumers can put any kind of values on the products to their liking, but at the end of the day, they can’t choose to pay for the products however they like, unless it’s a charity (or Humble Bundle, but even that is having specific price tiers now).

            Product value, at the end of the day, is decided by many factors, and while publishers do get a huge benefit out of this, the majority is used to pay back all development expenses (marketing included). The state of the economy also has a role to play in that as well.

            For most games, DLCs are just straight milking, but for COD, I think Activision’s somewhere in between “endless milking” and “actual worthy content”.

          • BradyAlucard

            Ah, nevermind, then!

    • Michael Romo

      Dude, it’s a zombies map. They put in lots of work to make it. It may be a remake, but it had extras to it. It’s not like a multiplayer map where it’s something you don’t really need. If you were a zombies fan, you’d know that each map has something to do with its storyline, so I’d say $6 is more than generous.

      • Dickmissle

        You actually do need it to progress the storyline

      • Drank Bleach

        Its still the same map from waw, so people already owned it, Activision is just nickel and diming it now, but you don’t see it like that while others do.

  • Mick

    Didn’t purchase the collectors edition or season pass and I have the map along with all dlc packs πŸ˜›

  • Element115Will

    No one is forcing you guys to buy the map, just like no one is forcing you guys to buy cryptokeys, yet you all do anyway. This is Activi$ion. Why is everyone acting all surprised? Ffs.

    • Shane’s House

      People are upset because this is DLC that was released alongside the full game at launch, meaning that they could have bundled it with the game, but instead decided to use it as an incentive to purchase the season pass. While Activision has practiced this in the past with Black Ops II, it’s still inexcusable, for it is unethical and fragmental to the community.

      • BradyAlucard

        Yeah, it’s anti-consumer. DLC is such a tainted concept. We *should* just be getting the $60 experience and have the $50 Season Pass and microtransaction crap on-disc, if you ask me. But some gamers these days condone it, and it’s irritating.

        I’m hoping the spam poster’s roommate Lori will buy it for me, with all that extra $$ she supposedly makes from home.

    • a corn

      This is perfect. No nonsense Multiplayer maps tacked on. Bought this instantly.

  • BradyAlucard


  • Supply Drops must be doing really bad, if activision is now trying to squeeze out the zombie communitys pockets aswell to please their investors…

    btw why isn’t CI covering the whole ATVI giving out CP to youtubers drama. Such a scandal imo these guys turning every trick to influence little kids through YT to buy their worthless in-game BS.

    • fr4gbob

      I honestly don’t see the problem here? if they want to give out COD points, surely that’s up to them?

      As for influencing little kids through YouTube to buy their stuff, that’s just advertising, if little kids want to spend their pocket money on this stuff, that’s up to them…. or their parents….

      There is no scandal here, just standard advertising, no worse than advertising the latest toys in-between kids programs on TV.

      The only thing that is really bad here, is the parents that let their kids have and play 18 rated games in the first place and Activision can not be blamed for that!

  • Michael Romo

    My mind’s telling me $6 is kinda a lot, and my OCD is telling me it should be a well-rounded number like $5

  • Michael Romo

    Why are people comparing multiplayer remakes to a zombies remake? The zombies are worth more than the multiplayer maps

    • BradyAlucard

      Which makes you want to question why they don’t release the new Multiplayer maps for free… oh wait.

  • shadowguy14

    lol everyone kept syaing it would be $5 eventually and Activi$ions like “nope, we another $1” lmao

  • Astraxis

    Wow, a solid purchase? I actually know what I’m getting? I don’t believe it.

    • BradyAlucard

      Stupid DLC. I’m glad that it’s something that’s more worthwhile than some overpriced camo, though.

    Section as I would like to see a community of those who don’t just comment to hate although I am in no way a representative of this site or any company that is involved with ATVI but just a Call of Duty fan. Thanks.

  • J4MES

    This was inevitable. Once Activision maxed their revenue from the season pass owners; any ‘loose’ content would obviously be made available separately as it’s another revenue stream they can maximise instead of being loyal to the people who supported the game right off the bat. The same will happen with Modern Warfare Remastered so if you don’t want Infinite Warfare; just hold out a few months and once the Legacy Edition sales have dried up; MW:R will be made available at a cost to all remaining people as a full standalone download so Activision can then generate money for essentially nothing.

  • DANK_Tigger (4chan-Faggot)

    Hey guys, I just want to say goodbye to all of you as I’ve now quit playing CoD and moved on to playing MOBA’s i.e. LoL, you guys are like a second family to me and I will miss all the trash talk, banter and the arguments, also the meme’s. It was a fun time reading all the comments that you guys posted but now is a farewell. P.S. I didn’t quit because of IW just felt bored about CoD and don’t see the interest of playing no more, however if I do come back by november, then tactical nuke my ass, because why not.

    • jooker-jr

      Maybe it’s just me, but I would love for you to stay and give us your opinions, everyone’s opinion is valuable, even if you don’t play cod.

      I also may not get this year’s cod for various reason ( need a break from cod, it’s not that interesting ) but I’ll still come to this site.

      But, if you don’t want to, then good luck with your life πŸ™‚

      • DANK_Tigger (4chan-Faggot)

        Thanks man. I might occasionally drop in just to see what’s going on, especially the banter but I just need to have a break from CoD, since I’ve lately stopped playing BO3 and playing MOBA’s more often now, as well as switching from console to PC (yes I’m going to become a PC fag) but overall I will see what’s happening on this site.

  • ArtisanKnight

    After a 3-month hiatus, I came back to black ops 3, and it was surprisingly okay. Maybe I’ll hop back into it.

  • Thirst

    I got Giant with season pass as i like zombz and even though this is the third rehash i’d still pay if it come back in every cod

  • Thirst

    I do think they should make a collective of all past and present zombz in one place i’d hit that up.

    Theyll do the same with modern warfare remastered. Its sooo painfully true.

  • 115

    When will it be in the xbox store thats the question

  • Jacob3922

    I knew they would do this eventually. Get everyone to buy the season pass for the map, and after that starts to drop off release the map seperately so you can make money off of the non season pass holders. The only good thing we can get out of this is more people to play the Giant with.

    • djml9

      Who would buy the season pass for just 1 map? If you dont want any of the dlc, chances are you can live without The Giant.

  • Conor

    If you buy it and you don’t have black ops , can you play it?
