On Labor Day weekend, “Call of Duty” enthusiasts will get the opportunity to experience the multiplayer from the upcoming, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3,” while participating in the first ‘Call of Duty XP’ convention, which will be held in Los Angeles.

Attendees will not only have hands-on play-time with the world-premiere of Modern Warfare 3’s multiplayer, but will also be able to play the new cooperative Spec Ops survival mode.

Also premiering at the event will be the fully functional online service known as Call of Duty Elite.

In addition to the previews of Modern Warfare 3, a $1 million “Call of Duty” tournament will be hosted at the convention.

According to an Activision Blizzard spokesperson, “fans will have the opportunity to qualify for the tournament prior to the event by showcasing their skills in ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’ multiplayer through regional promotions and competitions.”

Players who want a more realistic experience will be able to take place in paintball firefight matches on a life-sized version of the “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s” multiplayer map, “The Pit.”

Other events will include discussion panels and question and answer sessions with “Call of Duty” developers, an on-site “Call of Duty” museum, and live entertainment.

The ‘Call of Duty XP 2011’ will take place Sept. 2 and 3 at a 12-acre compound in Los Angeles, California.

Tickets go on sale July 19, and are $150 per entrant.

All proceeds benefit the Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit organization that assists soldiers’ transition back into civilian life, and helps them locate careers.

“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3” is released on Nov. 8, 2011.
