Hip-hop star to headline the convention on 3 September.
The inaugral Call of Duty XP convention on 2 and 3 September, 2011 in Los Angeles will feature a performance from Kanye West, the guy with a thing for novelty sunglasses. Mr West will perform at 8pm PST on Saturday 3 September.
Also confirmed for the show is the first public hands-on with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Call of Duty ‘live-action’ performances and the finals of the $1 million Call of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer tournament.
“Everything about XP will be as epic as the games themselves,” said Activision CEO, Eric Hirshberg.
“Whether you’re competing for one of the open slots in the $1 million tournament, playing Modern Warfare 3 for the first time, dodging paintballs in a spectacular life-size recreation of Modern Warfare 2’s Scrapyard level or just mingling with developers and fellow gamers. Call of Duty XP is a celebration of one of the greatest games in the world.”
