Call of Duty XP event returns this September, Activision announces COD VR title

Activision's celebration of all things Call of Duty is making a comeback later this year.

Call of Duty XP is being held in Los Angeles and is taking place between September 2nd and 4th.

The event features the Call of Duty World League Championship. Attendees will also be among the first to get hands-on with the multiplayer for the upcoming Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered, as well as new DLC for Black Ops III.

Activision also says fans will be able to try the first Call of Duty PlayStation VR experience where gamers can pilot a fighter jet.

The Call of Duty World League is also being held during the vent, which will see 32 top teams competing for $2m.

Call of Duty XP debuted back in 2011. Tickets for this year's show go on sale on June 11th.

"Call of Duty XP is going to be the biggest Call of Duty fan celebration in history,” Activision Blizzard boss Eric Hirshberg said.

The best Call of Duty players in the world will be front and centre trying to win the first Call of Duty World League Championship at what is sure to be our biggest eSports event ever. Plus, fans will be able to see and play more hands-on content and reveals in one place than we've ever had, from Infinite Warfare, to Modern Warfare Remastered to Black Ops III DLC. Plus, there will be an off-the-charts list of Call of Duty inspired activities that you can't experience anywhere else.”

Sony Interactive Entertainment America's VP of publisher relations Adam Boyes adds: As a presenting partner of the Call of Duty World League, it's been exciting to watch these talented teams compete and we're looking forward to the culmination of the tournament during the Call of Duty Championship.

"We're also thrilled to be bringing PlayStation VR to the amazing lineup of event activities, where fans will experience the thrill of piloting their own Jackal fighter jet. We're proud to partner with Activision and Call of Duty on the return of this historic fan celebration and this can't miss Call of Duty community gathering.”
