Black Ops 2 Pulls Pre-Order Bonus, Then Puts It Back
Most games today have pre-order bonuses. Some are good, some bad. At the very least you would expect to at least have access to it. Treyarch pulled the Nuketown 2050 playlist last night, a multiplayer mode for pre-order bonus map, with a tweet last night from one of the developers, David Vonderhaar. “Double XP weekend is official over. That means Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 is as well. I know. RIGHT? Don't kill the messenger.”
The internet wasn’t being very forgiving that day, to put it nicely. Treyarch seemed to get the message and promptly put up a “fast-action” playlist with the bonus map, called Chaos Moshpit.
This sort of thing really doesn’t give good press for the rampant use of pre-order bonuses being used to sell more games on day 1. What do you guys think about pre-order bonuses? Leave a comment below.
