Join more than 6000 Call of Duty gamers to witness the world premiere of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer this weekend. Attendees will be among the first to have the opportunity to get hands-on time with multiplayer and the new Spec Ops survival co-op mode. The celebration will immerse attendees in a Call of Duty experience unlike anything they’ve ever seen before. The event will include world-class entertainment (Kanye West is set to perform on the event’s closing night) and attendees can compete head-to-head for some serious cash prizes. Activision will donate 100 percent of the ticket sales to The Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit, public benefit corporation that seeks to help veterans transition to civilian life, find work and establish careers.
