West will take the stage at 8pm on Saturday September 3, bringing the first ever Call of Duty convention to a memorable conclusion. All XP ticketholders are guaranteed a spot at West's performance.
"We're pulling out all the stops," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. "We promised our attendees and fans around the world a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the first Call of Duty XP, so we're thrilled to have Kanye on board. Everything about XP will be as epic as the games themselves. 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. So what better way to top it off with one of the greatest artists in the world?"
Call of Duty XP will take place September 2-3 at the Call of Duty compound in Playa Vista, located at 5600 Campus Center Dr., Los Angeles.
Activision will donate 100 per cent of the Call of Duty XP sales to The Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit, public benefit corporation that seeks to help returning soldiers transition back to civilian life, find work and establish careers.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be released November 8.
