Call of Duty: Black Ops gets double XP weekend

From tomorrow (for Xbox 360 owners), there’ll be five new Call of Duty: Black Ops maps available to download.

If you’re umming and ahhing over this purchase, Activision wants to give you an extra nudge with a double XP weekend from February 4th through 6th. Because murder can be twice as fun!

This nugget was revealed on the Major Nelson Podcast yesterday by Black Ops developers David Vonderhaar and Josh Olin, and Olin later tweeted to confirm the double XP goodness would extend to all platforms, new maps or not.

If you’re a PS3 or PC player, the new maps will be made available in one month’s time.
