Great news for all Xbox 360-based ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’ fans. Per reports, the Nuketown Zombies map, originally only available for “Hardened Edition” and “Care Package Edition” owners of ‘Black Ops 2,’ is now set to be available on Dec. 12 on the Xbox 360 for anyone holding the ‘Black Ops 2’ Season Pass.

For anyone not familiar with the ‘Black Ops 2’ Season Pass, the official Xbox Marketplace states that people who purchase the Season Pass “will have access to four downloadable Map Packs and Nuketown Zombies, as well as an exclusive Calling Card – "The Deuce." "The Deuce" Calling Card is available now for Season Pass holders in the Barracks menu of Multiplayer.

It also states that while Map Packs will be available in 2013, and Nuketown Zombies is set for a Dec. 2012 arrival. This means that as soon as the new Season Pass content becomes available, it can be downloaded from the ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’ in-game store.

The DLC content in the Season Pass may be sold separately. If the player purchases the Season Pass, he won’t have to also purchase these standalone Map Packs or Nuketown Zombies, as they will be charged for them.

However, back to main topic. Activision tweeted "Nuketown Zombies hits @Xbox 360 #BlackOps2 Season Pass holders tomorrow! Which weapon will you Pack-A-Punch with first?"

Moreover, Treyarch has updated the probation system and other security related issues in ‘Black Ops 2.’ Formerly, being pointed at for a weird probation system where getting kicked off from a server due to host migration counted as a strike and after gathering eventual strikes, players couldn’t be able to play the multiplayer of the game, the problem is now set to be addressed with the latest update and this means that strikes towards probation will only accumulate when pre-maturely leaving a match.

Activision has noticed that problem and has released a patch accordingly that will tweak the algorithm a bit and players, as mentioned before, will only be penalized if they decide to back out of the game before time.

"A live update has been released addressing Probation and security-related issues. Keep calm and frag on," Treyarch tweeted.
