Activision has announced details of a Double XP Launch Weekend for Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Running from Friday, November 8 through to Monday, November 11, the event will let players earn twice the amount of XP for their multiplayer character as usual.

Players who pick up the current-gen version will also be able to transfer their experience to the next-gen version - whenever that ships.

Battlefield 4, which launches the week before Call of Duty: Ghosts, is also set to receive a Double XP Launch Weekend.
