Get ready to dust off your Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops discs, because it’s been announced that Activision will be running a huge double XP weekend for both Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2 starting this Friday.
Robert Bowling, the creative strategist for Infinity Ward has confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 will receive its first double XP weekend in over a year while players who prefer Black Ops will receive double XP as well. That’s right. For the first time ever, two Call Of Duty games will be running Double XP weekends at the same time.
But this isn’t just any double XP weekend. Robert Bowling tells you about the prestige shop and why this double XP weekend could help you below.
Bowling mentions some of the different items you can unlock with the prestige tokens such as double XP for a specific amount of game time, gear for your classes, and even an extra custom class from the start.
So basically, in Modern Warfare 3, every time you prestige you earn a prestige token. But now, long time players are being rewarded as well. So if you’ve ever prestiged in Call Of Duty 4, World At War, Modern Warfare 2, Or Black Ops, you’ll receive a prestige token for each game on day 1. For example: if you decided to prestige in CoD 4 and Black Ops, but skipped it in WaW and MW2, then you’ll start with 2 prestige tokens.
If you have yet to prestige in Black Ops or Modern Warfare 2, you’ll get the chance to get some prestige tokens added to your name with the help of double XP! Starting this Friday, the Double XP will run through the weekend and end on Tuesday, November 1st.
So will you be revisiting Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops this weekend? Maybe even CoD4 and World At War for that extra prestige token? Be sure to leave any thoughts on the upcoming double XP or Modern Warfare 3 by leaving a comment below or sounding off in our forums!
