One of the biggest videogames of the last decade Call of Duty will be getting its own virtual reality (VR) experience in September 2016. As part of Activision’s plans for an event celebrating the title, the company will be holding Call of Duty XP in Los Angeles, California featuring Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE’s) Playstation VR head-mounted display (HMD).
Fans of the franchise heading to the three day show will be able to strap themselves into a Jackel, the personal fighter jet in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, to experience the videogame like never before. The event will also feature the finals of the Call of Duty World League Championship, the first hands-on for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare multiplayer, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered multiplayer and new Call of Duty: Black Ops III downloadable content.
“As a presenting partner of the Call of Duty World League, it’s been exciting to watch these talented teams compete and we’re looking forward to the culmination of the tournament during the Call of Duty Championship. We’re also thrilled to be bringing PlayStation VR to the amazing lineup of event activities, where fans will experience the thrill of piloting their own Jackal fighter jet,” said Adam Boyes, VP of Publisher Relations, Sony Interactive Entertainment America (SIEA). “We’re proud to partner with Activision and Call of Duty on the return of this historic fan celebration and this can’t miss Call of Duty community gathering.”
