On a much lighter note, we have some awesome news for those looking into purchasing the Season Pass DLC soon after release. Originally, the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Nuketown Zombies map was going to be made available to those that purchased the Collector’s Edition. Due to the overwhelming popularity and enthusiasm from the Call of Duty community over these past months, Treyarch has decided to spice things up for the non-Collector’s Edition buyers out there and give you a piece of the pie.

Available starting in December, the Nuketown Zombies map will be included along as addition content to the DLC Season Pass! Not only do you get all four DLC map packs for a discounted price ($49.99), but the Nuketown Zombies map, along with a special, in-game calling card, will also be instantly at your fingertips as well! Thanks Treyarch!

Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be available in stores tomorrow, November 13th. And remember kids: play nice!
