Four Tournament slots will be filled on site at Call of Duty XP, giving attendees a shot at the largest gaming prize purse.

After the explosive reveal of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer at the keynote, all attendees will be hands-on with 2011's hottest gaming phenomenon months before its release. Players can compete for prizes and bragging rights in numerous multiplayer challenges featuring Modern Warfare® 3 as well as other landmark titles in the Call of Duty franchise, including Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2 and more.

First up is a collaboration with dumbdumb®, the production company led by Will Arnett and Jason Bateman in partnership with Ben Silverman's Electus Studio. Arnett is scheduled to attend the inaugural XP event not only to share a preview of the all-new content series in production, but also to be among the first to play Modern Warfare 3.

Also newly announced is the sneak peek of the latest Modern Warfare-inspired live-action short by We Can Pretend, the Toronto-based creative team behind this year's fan-favorite flick Find Makarov, and the next installment of Pro vs. G.I.

  • The opportunity to speed-run the infamous Modern Warfare 2 The Pit training sequence, for real.
  • A military-style zip-line plunge across the Call of Duty XP compound.
  • Suiting up for one-on-one battle in Juggernaut Sumo.
  • Rations and refreshment for sale at Modern Warfare's 2 iconic Burgertown fast food joint.
