Nuketown Available Now in Black Ops 4 for PS4 Players First

Between Nuketown and Fallout 76, it's a packed week for nuclear devastation in video games.

Call of Duty may be military-this and military-that, but it does have one iconic map that's stood tall since Call of Duty: Black Ops. It's Nuketown, a map that changes with each new Black Ops entry. Starting today on PlayStation 4, players can finally dive into Black Ops 4's own rendition of Nuketown, which takes place on the backdrop of snowy Russia in what's likely a nod to Chernobyl.

Of course, it's not the only Nuketown in Black Ops 4. Since launch, Black Ops 4's Blackout mode has its own Nuketown in the guise of Nuketown Island. To celebrate the Nuketown multiplayer map's release this week, Nuketown Island will be infested with zombies in Blackout, similar to other key areas on the Blackout map. Considering Nuketown's once Zombies-related map, it's a fitting callback to the birth of Nuketown in the Call of Duty lineage.

Nuketown is exclusive to PS4 players this week, and opens up to Xbox One and PC next week. It's free for all players too. Other quirks with Black Ops 4's latest update include the return of the Bowie Knife, new character missions for Blackout (for all players, not just PS4), miscellaneous stability and gameplay balancing, and more. You can read the full patch notes for this week's Black Ops 4 update on Reddit.
