Infinity Ward has got some extra XP to hand out to Extinction players in Call of Duty: Ghosts this weekend, according to a recent announcement.
The studio will be turning double XP on for all Extinction playlists on all platforms this weekend in celebration of Ghosts’ Invasion DLC launch on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC on July 3. The event itself will likely run from July 4 to July 7.

As you know, Invasion introduces Episode 3 of Extinction’s four-part series, so you’ll be able to explore the new Alien-infested areas with some extra incentive. Invasion also offers up four new multiplayer maps; Pharaoh, Mutiny, Departed, and Favela, a classic fan-favorite from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Also, if you missed it, IW is also doubling the cap for XP earned in Squads matches, so you’ll now be able to earn up to 4000 XP in total per game.
