Almost two years after its initial release, the Nuketown 2025 map for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is being released for the Wii U version of the game.
Nuketown was originally available only to Xbox 360 players who purchased the deluxe editions of the game, but a month after Black Ops 2’s release, it was made available to all Xbox 360 Season Pass members. About a month later, PS3 and PC players gained access, but the map was never released for Wii U. Today, IGN is reporting that an update brings Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’s first DLC map to Nintendo’s console for free.
The update also adds a menu option for the Die Rise map, a large zombie survival map set in an office building with several elevators. As of now, the Die Rise option is not selectable, but we assume that the greyed out option means that at least part of the next DLC pack, entitled Revolution, will be coming to Wii U at some point.
While the fact that Activision is still supporting a two year-old game on its least popular console is, somewhat impressive, I’m not sure many gamers will even notice the update. 2013’s Call of Duty: Ghosts is now the shooter of choice on the Wii U, and the audience who is still playing Black Ops 2 is relatively small. For those 1,000 or so players that are sticking with the two-year old game, this is great news.
