If you're the kind of person who makes plans with your friends to play Call of Duty during the week, watch videos online of map strategies, and have mastered the blind Tomahawk kill, then you're exactly the kind of people who would love to flock to L.A. this September to attend Call of Duty XP. The convention will be a two event that will offer a number of things such as a first look at the multiplayer component for Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty Elite, a $1 million dollar Call of Duty tournament, keynote speeches, press conferences, panels, and meet & greets with the developers. Call of Duty XP will also have a full-scale replica of Modern Warfare 2's most popular map, The Pit, to allow fans to play through with paintball guns since shooting each other with real guns didn't receive the approval of Activision's lawyers for some strange reason. That's not all in the land of full-scale replicas as fans will also be able to chow down in Modern Warfare 2's Burger Town. Let's just hope those burgers were worth the terrible service we received during Modern Warfare 2's campaign.
Sitting at the edge of your seat and frothing at the mouth in anticipation for Call of Duty XP? Well then, you should know over 6,000 tickets will go on sale on July 19 for $150 a pop. Before you jump on a message board to angrily type away at your keyboard at the convention's price, you should know Activision isn't pocketing any of the money they'll receive from ticket sales. Instead, 100% of the proceeds will go to the Call of Duty Endowment which is a non-profit organization Activision created in order to help veterans find jobs after they return home.
Call of Duty XP will take place September 2nd and 3rd and the $150 ticket will gain you access to both days of the convention. If you're interested in the convention, head on over to callofduty.com/xp.
