Double XP Inbound for MW2 and Black Ops

By Michelle Balsan, 8 years ago
Update: It's been made clear by Robert Bowling on his Twitter that you will only be able to earn one token per CoD game, not one token per prestige in each game. So, you can earn a max of four tokens.

Thanks to those that pointed that out in the comments!

Original Story:
Activision revealed today that they will be kicking off a Double XP weekend for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops on Thursday, October 27th.

Now, of course, there are likely those of you who think this is little more than a ploy to keep players away from DICE's newly released Battlefield 3, but there actually is good cause to participate if you'll be picking up Modern Warfare 3 next month. See, for anyone who has already prestiged in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: World at War, or Black Ops, you'll receive a prestige token for Modern Warfare 3. These prestige token allow you to buy perks, such as two hours of double XP time in MW3 or the ability to "choose one piece of gear from your custom class to keep unlocked from rank 1 of future prestiges".

Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling, who kindly shared a few words with us last month, delivers more details on the XP weekend and prestige tokens in the following video:

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launches worldwide November 8th.
