Activision Putting on Two-Day Call of Duty Fan Event This Fall in L.A.

Taking a page from Blizzard, Activision is putting on a fan event for Call of Duty in September in Los Angeles, where it will give fans a chance to check out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III‘s multiplayer a couple months early.

They’re calling it Call of Duty XP, and unlike Blizzard’s BlizzCon, XP will be all Call of Duty and probably less developer-intensive than Blizzard’s yearly event. According to Activision’s XP website, the event will include a “million-dollar tournament,” “the ultimate paintball firefight on a life-size re-creation of (Call of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer map) Scrapyard,” and the reveal of new features for Call of Duty: Elite.

Tickets for the event ain’t cheap at $150 (sorry, 12-year-old CoD savants), and go on sale on July 19. Grab more info on Activision’s site for the event, callofduty.com/xp

According to VG247′s story, “6,000 people are expected to show up in a TBA area in Los Angeles for the event. Tickets will go on sale for $150, with all proceeds going to the Call of Duty Endowment.”

So no, before you start commenting, Activision not bilking everyone for more money. Well, except for merchandise and other things sold on the premises. Those you can comment about.
