PlayStation owners who play either Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 or Warzone 2.0 (or both!) were given an extra day of free Double XP in all game modes yesterday (as part of Sony’s exclusive deal with Activision), but now the event has been opened up to all players, regardless of platform.
Starting today (December 1) and finishing tomorrow (December 2), players only have a limited amount of time to get in on the action and rack up those experience points. As stated in a Tweet by Infinity Ward, this event really doesn’t last long, but knowing the Call of Duty community, it will definitely be taken advantage of.
And, based on previous games in the series, this is likely only the beginning of Free Double XP Events for Modern Warfare 2.

In related news, all owners of any of the Vault Editions of the game should have received their 10 hours of Double XP and 10 hours of Double Weapon XP Tokens by now. And, as another treat to PlayStation users, the Operator skin ‘Oni’ is now free to all players with a free Season One Combat Pack, redeemable in the PlayStation Store.
PlayStation fans have been receiving this kind of preferential treatment for some time now, all as part of a deal Sony struck with Activision. Deals such as early access to the Beta, unique operators and skins, and free Combat Packs each season. PlayStation users who party up together also get a bonus of 25% more weapon XP.
But as Microsoft is currently in the process of acquiring Activision as one of its own first-party companies, these exclusive deals may come to an end. Activision has confirmed that even if the deal goes through, future Call of Duty games will be released on PlayStation, but otherwise, the future remains a mystery.
