'Call of Duty: Black Ops II' Pre-Orders Earn You Launch Weekend Double XP!

We've known for quite some time that pre-ordering "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" would land players the re-imagined Nuketown 2025 multiplayer map. However, Activision recently revealed there's another bonus in store for gamers who purchase their copy before it hits shelves – double XP.

Obviously, the early purchase incentive isn't going to hook you up with double XP forever, but it will give you the opportunity to boost your XP during the game's launch weekend, hopefully giving you the jump on all those chumps on your friends list. "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" hits shelves on November 13th and so long as you've pre-ordered and downloaded the Nuketown 2025 map (you have to do this for it to work!) you'll be entitled to double XP November 16th – November 18th.

Personally, I was a huge fan of the original Nuketown map and can't wait to see the carnage that erupts in Nuketown 2025, especially considering we'll be able to earn double XP right off the bat. What new features/maps/weapons are you most excited for in Black Ops II? Hit the comments and let us know!
