Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Releases November 24 Nuketown Update, Patch Notes Revealed

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War finally has its own version of Nuketown with Treyarch releasing the Nuketown ’84 map on Tuesday, but the map didn’t release on its own. It came with an update for Black Ops Cold War that affected both the Multiplayer and Zombies modes but didn’t include nearly as many changes as the bigger update from last week did. Instead, it simply fixed a couple of problems that had been affecting different parts of the game while also reminding players of a welcome bonus that’s live now to celebrate the launch of the new Nuketown map.

In case players had missed some of the announcements for things releasing alongside the Nuketown map, the summary below from Treyarch should give you a good idea of what’s new. Players can get twice the account level experience and weapon experience for a while to commemorate Nuketown’s relaunch and can also make sure they play on that map as much as possible with the new Nuketown 24/7 playlist.

Beyond those changes, the patch notes include several other details for players which may be of importance if you’ve noticed a few bugs or other issues affecting your Multiplayer or Zombies experiences. You can see those patch notes in full below courtesy of Treyarch.
