Clear your calendar for September 2 and 3: Activision is holding an epic, fan-centric reveal for Modern Warfare 3. Attendees of Call of Duty XP will be able to play MW 3 months early, along with a ton of other CoD centric activities, including a million dollars in prizes, paintball versions of some epic Modern Warfare maps, the reveal of Call of Duty: Elite's features and a whole lot more. Actvision promises an "Epic Event," and judging from the convention's itinerary, it sure sounds like it.
Tickets to the two-day event will cost $150, and festivities will take place within a 12-acre Southern Californian compound that will place you directly into the Call of Duty experience... with video games and paintballs taking the place of the bullets and bombs that fly in real wars.
