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
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.
