Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 may finally be on the tail end of its life cycle, but that doesn’t mean the studio behind the blockbuster FPS is without a plan to keep you engaged in some fun activities.
Yesterday, Treyarch put together a small community update video detailing some of the upcoming Black Ops 2 events you can look forward to in the coming weeks.
Of course, today marks the start of double XP across all platforms, so you can soak up some of that extra XP throughout the weekend until this Monday at 10am PDT on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or PC. Today also marks the start of a free trial run of the Black Ops 2 Apocalypse DLC for Xbox 360 users. That means you’ll be able to give some of the new maps a shot for free until this Wednesday, September 25th.
Shortly following the release of the Apocalypse DLC on the PlayStation 3 and PC this September 26, the studio will be hosting a cross-platform double weapon XP event from September 27 at 10am PDT to September 30 at 10am PDT.
There are also a number of community game nights to participate in next week with community leaders like Dan “One of Swords” Amrich on the PS3 this September 26, CODBlackIce on the Xbox 360 this September 27 and members of the PC dev team on September 30.
On October 1, Black Ops 2 developers will be joining in some live streaming of a few rounds of multiplayer and zombies games, along with a special guest or two. You might want to pay attention to this particular live stream, as the studio will be dropping a few hints as to where you might find a real life Black Ops 2 care package.
Check out the full video below for more details, a recap of Black Ops 2’s fourth and final DLC, Apocalypse, and a special send off from the entire Treyarch dev team.
