If you’re in the mood to play some Black Ops 3 online with some friends but you feel as if all the maps have been played out, worn out, and whittled down into a digital pulp of boredom, don’t worry about it because Activision and Treyarch have announced that a free new map is available for Black Ops 3 called NUK3TOWN.
The map is a re-imagining of the original that Treyarch released years ago for the Black Ops series, and now it’s making a return with a few extra goodies, such as the NUK3TOWN personalization pack. The pack includes weapon camouflage, three weapon reticles, and a calling card themed after NUK3TOWN.
In addition to this, the old map made new again has been added into the map rotation so you can find in most standard multiplayer playlists.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has been one of the more divisive entries in the series despite being the most popular and the best selling in the series so far. One of the things that has made it so divisive is the story… Treyarch decided to push the series forward with a very mature and deliberately psychological look at the effects of warfare on the human mind, as well as dealing with trauma and how all of that could play a part in the structure of our consciousness in what could be deemed as the afterlife.
Black Ops 3 is no stroll through the park as far as storytelling is concerned. It hits on some heavy themes but the Social Justice Warrior reviewers weren’t really having any of it; a real shame.
Anyway, you can grab the NUK3TOWN map right now for the Xbox One, PS4 or PC. Treyarch has wisely left behind the old and decrepit seventh gen consoles to focus more on the newer consoles and PC. The modding toolkit is supposed to be releasing soon for PC gamers, which will open up a plethora of modding possibilities for the game.
