If there was one thing that summed up what Call of Duty is, it was Nuketown. Fast paced, frantic, run and gun chaos all on an extremely small map. Probably the sole reason players preordered the game was for Nuketown 2025.
Unfortunately, Treyarch has announced the end of the double XP weekend and along with it, came the end of the 24/7 Nuketown 2025 playlist. Nuketown 2025 playlist will only be back on special events. It is no longer apart of the map rotation as of now and will only be available to play with your friends in custom games. This is pretty infuriating, especially for the players who preordered the game solely for this map.
David Vonderhaar, Game Design Director at Treyarch, has just announced a new fast action playlist called Chaos Moshpit. Which brought back Nuketown 2025 by popular demand. However, this playlist is only available for those who preordered Black Ops 2. Seems like the right thing to do, I can only imagine the number of complaints they were bombarded with.
In Modern Warfare 3 news, Infinity Ward has just released a patch that will separate the cheaters from the regular players. PC Players have been complaining about hackers using aimbots for quite a while now. This patch will pit the hackers and cheaters into their own playlist away from the legitmate gamers. Even for Black Ops 2, one day after its release players were already reporting aimbots on the PC. This is great news for PC players but I'm sure it would have been welcomed better if this patch was deployed prior to the release of Black Ops 2.
Sledehammer, a studio who aided Infinity Ward develop Modern Warfare 3, have just posted a job listing looking for a Senior Environment Artist to help with the upcoming installment of the Call of Duty series. No information on whether or not it will be Modern Warfare 4 or a different title completely.
