Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 'Nuketown 2025' map looks all too familiar in new trailer

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will take folks who pre-order the shooter to a futuristic rendition of one of the series' most memorable, close-quarters maps: Nuketown 2025, the subject of the game's latest trailer, posted above.

Despite a few technological bells and whistles, the map looks incredibly similar to the Nuketown featured in the original Black Ops. The trailer above showcases shootouts held in cramped stairways, traffic-strewn cul de sacs and backyards that would be just perfect for a barbecue, if they weren't filled with gun-toting soldiers of fortune.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 launches Nov. 13 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, and will launch alongside the Wii U on Nov. 18. The Nuketown 2025 map will be distributed as a pre-order bonus for the game's early adopters.
