Considering that their game is the most-played game on Live, it seems a bit strange that Call of Duty 4
would be taking cues from its defeated opponent. Yet to celebrate the release of the Variety
Map pack, Infinity Ward is doing just that, taking a leaf out of Bungie's book and creating their very own version of the Double EXP Weekend
. The COD4
weekend is a bit different than the Halo 3
system however. In Halo 3
the boosted EXP is limited to a specific playlist: Grifball. In Hal- er,
we mean COD4
, the EXP is doubled any time a match is played on the Variety DLC maps
. So while you're effectively paying for the new EXP, it is good to see Infinity Ward taking preemptive steps to match anything that could lead to Halo 3
coming back to the top. Competition breeds excellence right?
We have no info on whether or not the Double EXP Weekend will be a recurring thing with COD4,
but the current one ends on Sunday at midnight.
