Black Ops 2 on Wii U will get DLC

Written by David Stellmack



Still working out the kinks with Nintendo


Apparently, the Wii U version of Black Ops 2 is now confirmed to support downloadable content. While we always believed that it would, the game packaging only now confirms this is the case. One problem, however, is that Activision is apparently working out some kinks in the system for Black Ops 2 map packs and DLC season passes on the Wii U with Nintendo.

The Nuketown 2025 map that is supported to come with Black Ops 2 to those who are day one purchasers is apparently still an issue on the Wii U right now. According to what we are hearing, retailers are going to be supplying codes to Wii U buyers to allow for the download of the Nuketown 2025 map on the Wii U version.

Activision and Nintendo still have some time to work things out, as the Wii U version of Black Ops 2 does not arrive till November 30th, instead of the November 13th release for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions. The November 30th release is due to the fact that console will not be released till then. Still, reports are sketchy, and Activision has not officially confirmed anything yet regarding the Wii U version and the Nuketown 2025 map, so we will just have to see how this shakes out.

The best news out of all of this is that Activision and Nintendo have worked things out to get the DLC flowing, and that is a big deal if Nintendo wants to achieve its goal of attracting hardcore gamers to the Wii U platform.
