Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War just launched, and it will soon be reintroducing the fan-favorite Black ops map Nuketown called Nuketown ’84. If that isn’t enough incentive to play a ton of Cold War this weekend, Activision is sweetening the pot by offering double XP as well.
Nuketown ’84 launches on November 24, and it will be free for all users. The Double XP event is already live ahead of the Nuketown ’84 launch, offering both 2XP and 2X Weapon XP. Double XP will last through November 30, so you have plenty of time to rack up experience while trying the new version of a classic.
You can also claim a Nuketown-themed weapons pack for free simply by logging in before December 3. That pack includes a “Last Stop” shotgun blueprint, weapon charms, an emblem, and a calling card.
“It’s reasonable to expect updates to Cold War at a steady clip. Weapons will be tweaked, issues will be patched, and gameplay will be balanced,” Kallie Plagge wrote in GameSpot’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War review. “Zombies has a strong foundation and may very well be improved further by potential updates, but the gap between multiplayer and the Warzone ecosystem is too wide to be bridged by small tweaks. Zombies is a good co-op time overall, but multiplayer falls flat, leaving the strong campaign to do most of the heavy lifting.”
