Activision will convert a 12-acre compound in Los Angeles to host its Call of Duty XP event for the popular first-person shooter fans. The highlights of the event, which will be held in September 2 to 3, are the hands-on demo of Activision’s new Modern Warfare 3 Spec Ops Survival Mode and multiplayer, and a Black Ops Xbox 360 live tournament.
Everyone is invited to attend the convention, provided that you pay $150 to gain entry. All proceeds of the 2011 event will go to Activision’s non-profit Call of Duty Endowment for war heroes.
“From the high production values of our live, immersive events – all the way to the smallest details in every design and activity – we’re pulling out all the stops to make Call of Duty XP the ultimate gathering for the global community of Call of Duty fans. The celebration will immerse attendees in a Call of Duty experience unlike anything they’ve ever seen before. Over the course of two days, gamers can trade Call of Duty war stories, experience the official unveiling of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer and the full feature functionality of Call of Duty Elite, as well as enjoy world-class entertainment and compete head-to-head for some serious cash prizes,” said Activision’s Chief Executive Officer Eric Hirshberg the event’s press release.
This is not the first time that the company held a large-scale fan festival. In 2008, after the game publisher’s merger with Vivendi Games, it organized Blizzcon, an annual World of Warcraft convention.
