The mysterious black letter that was sent out to YouTubers yesterday has finally been opened. Inside the envelope is a Call of Duty XP invite for September 2nd through the 4th. This fan-inspired Call of Duty celebration will feature the multiplayer reveal of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare with attendees being among the first in the world to play Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Zombies, Modern Warfare Remastered, Black Ops 3's DLC 4 and Infinite Warfare Multiplayer. Call of Duty XP will also feature Nuketown Paintball, Zombies Laser Tag, and a Call of Duty-inspired PlayStation VR Experience.
Call of Duty XP will be centered around the much-anticipated culmination of the Call of Duty World League Championship. 32 teams will be competing for a 2 million dollar prize pool, the largest in Call of Duty history. Those unable to attend the event in person can watch all the action unfold in the Black Ops 3 Live Event viewer on Playstation 4, or on callofduty.com.
Adam Boyes, VP of Publisher Relations for Sony Interactive Entertainment America, released the following statement about the event:
“As a presenting partner of the Call of Duty World League, it’s been exciting to watch these talented teams compete and we’re looking forward to the culmination of the tournament during the Call of Duty Championship. We’re also thrilled to be bringing PlayStation VR to the amazing lineup of event activities, where fans will experience the thrill of piloting their own Jackal fighter jet. We’re proud to partner with Activision and Call of Duty on the return of this historic fan celebration and this can’t miss Call of Duty community gathering.”
Select events from Call of Duty XP will be streamed live on Twitch and YouTube.
Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, also released a statement:
"Fans will be able to see and play more hands-on content and reveals in one place than we've ever had, from Infinite Warfare to Modern Warfare Remastered to Black Ops III DLC. Plus, there will be an off-the-charts list of Call of Duty inspired activities that you can't experience anywhere else."
2011 saw the last Call of Duty XP event, as Infinity Ward showcased Modern Warfare 3 with a life-size paintball version of Scrapyard, a $1,000,000 tournament, and a Kanye concert.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer Reveal
The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer reveal will kick off the event on September 2nd. Details are scarce, but we do know that it will feature a chain-based movement system similar to Black Ops 3.
