Enjoy Double XP for Call of Duty: Black Ops This Weekend – Only on PS3

Welcome_to_Nuketown

Leo Tolstoy once said, “The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” Ask any PlayStation gamer who missed out on the Call of Duty: Black Ops double XP weekend a few weeks ago, and they’ll tell you: Leo knew what he was talking about. While other platforms soaked up the extra experience points, PS3 gamers had to hang in there while PlayStation put everything in order behind the scenes. In cases like that, patience isn’t a virtue — patience is a pain in the butt.

As the double-XP date loomed nearer, more and more PlayStation gamers wondered if they’d be able to take part in the festivities, and Treyarch – developer of Black Ops – swore to fans that they would not be forgotten. This weekend, they’re quickly making good on that promise, with a double-XP period that lasts from this Friday, May 20th at 10am all the way through the weekend and beyond – the good stuff keeps coming until 10am on Tuesday the 24th. What’s more, that’s going to be even sweeter thanks to a Nuketown 24/7 playlist that’s being added just for the event. Nuketown is my favorite map because it’s small and chaotic – and the close confines often result in high kill counts, which can really push you to the next level of Prestige in a hurry during a bonus XP weekend. It’s a fast, intense map – but don’t let that stop you from uncovering some of Nuketown’s hidden secrets.

So if the two most powerful warriors are patience and time…well, you’ve been patient, and it took some time. This weekend, enjoy being the warrior.

i have a question dan please answer why doesnt black ops do double xp every weekend? and
is it a long proccess?


1074

+ Rdowg4018 on May 24th, 2011 at 6:59 pm said:

hey Dan please respond. in mw3 is it possible to add something kind of like the hackers version of zombies that they made for mw2 because when there were people that had it i personly thought it was greater then then the black ops zombie because of the way real people could be both zombies and humans it made it harder and more challenging because it would of not been as predictable as a computer being a zombie. if not what about the alien terroist mode so many people had herd roomers about on mw2 but was found out not to be true thanx

ps my spelling is not the best nor my grammer

@ Dan Nuketown 24/7 is indeed fast-paced, non-stop killing. Playing Double XP weekend for the first time makes me want to say there should be more 2XP weekends on special occasions like holidays, when we have nothing going on, and 2XP weekends even AFTER Modern Warfare3 comes out November 8. I guarantee that people will still play Black Ops just like people are still playing MW2.
