Activision has just announced that Kanye West will be performing at its Call of Duty XP event on Saturday, Sep. 3.
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?”
West will hit the stage at 8 p.m., highlighting a two-day event that will get gamers hands-on time with the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
The event takes place at the Call of Duty compound in Playa Vista, located at 5600 Campus Center Dr., Los Angeles, Calif.
