Call of Duty XP Event to Unveil MW3's Multiplayer

First there was QuakeCon and BlizzCon, but now there is Call of Duty Con – well, almost! Activision has announced the very first ever Call of Duty XP, a two-day event being held in LA in September, where more than 6,000 rabid fanboys will be able to celebrate Activision’s first-person shooter series.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s multiplayer mode will make its world premiere at the event, as will the full slate of Call of Duty Elite functionality. Activision has been unwilling to share everything Elite will offer because it’s so closely tied in with MW3’s multiplayer.

Fanboys will be able to try out both the new multiplayer and Spec Ops modes for themselves as well as compete in a $1 million tournament (qualifying will take place in Black Ops prior to the event, with select qualifications taking place at the event itself), and check out real-life recreations of several Modern Warfare 2 levels/areas including Burger Town (which will serve lunch), The Pit (where you can try to set a top time on a real-life course), and Scrapyard (home to paintball tournaments). There will also be developer panels, live entertainment, a Call of Duty armory and museum, and more.
