Double XP this Weekend in Call of Duty: Black Ops

BOOM widget 371171 This weekend, Treyarch is hosting its first "Double XP" multiplayer event in its commercial smash-hit Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Though the event was surely scheduled to coincide with the release of the game's first downloadable content pack, players on all platforms are invited to the additional experience. The DLC pack, "First Strike," is currently only available on the Xbox 360.

Running today (it has already begun) through February 7 at 8am (PT), Black Ops soldiers on the PC, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360 can earn the bonus experience.
