Activision will resurrect its Call of Duty fan event this fall after a five-year hiatus. Call of Duty XP will take place at The Forum in Inglewood, California, in September, giving enthusiasts the opportunity to check out what’s in store for the future of the enormously popular first-person-shooter franchise.
The event will be the first opportunity for fans to play the multiplayer modes set to be included as part of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and its pre-order bonus, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. Attendees will also be able to try out a new experience based on the franchise that has been developed for PlayStation VR.
XP 2016 will also be the setting for the Call of Duty Championship Finals. Teams from all over the world have been doing battle in the Call of Duty World League to gain access to the final stage of the competition — and the $2 million prize pool that’s up for grabs.
Meanwhile, there will be plenty of other fun for fans of the franchise. There’s set to be a paintball zone inspired by the series’ iconic Nuketown map, a chance to play a version of the Zombies game mode using laser tag equipment, and a host of panels with the various development studios associated with Call of Duty.
Tickets are being offered in three tiers; the Enlisted ticket costs $49 and will secure seats for the World Championship and access to gameplay and activities, while a Veteran ticket costs $129 and includes all that and a copy of the digital legacy edition of Infinite Warfare. The $199 Prestige ticket adds a special allocation for activities and gameplay, as well as VIP bonuses.
Call of Duty XP 2016 will take place from September 2 to 4. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. PT on June 11.
