Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U
In honor of Halloween, Activision has confirmed that it will be offering double XP in all relevant online multiplayer modes of Call of Duty: Ghosts, as well as Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Because somehow, shooting up the enemies of America in fictionalized, unrealistic wargame scenarios is all that Halloween is about. Or something.
The Double XP period begins today, and will continue on through to the end of this week on Friday, October 31. This double XP weekend is probably Activision’s last attempt to garner some interest and multiplayer traffic in these two games, which are both substantially less popular than Call of Duty games were at their peak, before Activision releases Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in November, which they are turning to to reverse the trend of the series’ slump in recent years.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is available on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U; Call of Duty: Ghosts was made available for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and Wii U. Advanced Warfare will be coming to all the same platforms Ghosts was available on, except for Wii U.
