Call of Duty XP preview goes behind the scenes
Thursday 01 September 2011
Call of Duty community rep Robert Bowling gives viewers a sneak peek of the Call of Duty XP event that's taking place September 2-3 in Lost Angeles.
Bowling shows where attendees will play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer two months before its worldwide release on November 8, before moving outside the XP hall.
There's a life-size speedrun challenge called The Pit taken from a Modern Warfare 2 tutorial level, and multiplayer map Scrapyard is recreated for a three-day paintball extravaganzza.
The games' fictional fast food outlet Burger Town will be there to provide catering for the event.
The whole thing is designed to ramp up excitement for Modern Warfare 3, next in a series which has broken sales records year-on-year, but one that finds rivals like Battlefield 3 eager to move in on its territory.
