Multiplayer Confirmed for Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified on PS Vita

In case there was any doubt over the inclusion of multiplayer in PS Vita’s Call Of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified, Walmart posted the game’s description confirming that the first Call of Duty for PS Vita will indeed feature a multiplayer component.

Earlier this month at E3, Sony only revealed the title of the first Call of Duty game for PS Vita, Black Ops: Declassified. Little has been known about the title until now, well kind of. Walmart, via GAF, outed the following blip about the game along with the box art, which might still change.

“Before the future could be won, history had to be written. Exposing that story exclusively on PlayStation Vita, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified explores original fiction in the Call of Duty Black Ops universe with an all-new campaign of Special Ops missions. Optimized for gamers on-the-go, Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified delivers the most intense handheld Call of Duty experience to date, including both Special Ops Story mode and Multiplayer combat tailored for the PS Vita.”

First Modern Warfare 3 Double Weapon XP Event for PS3 and Xbox 360

Infinity Ward has been teasing us about a Modern Warfare 3 double weapon XP event for a while now, and the studio finally decided to kick off the very first event yesterday.

“In celebration of E3, the developers are turning on Double Weapon XP for the first time ever! Rapidly level up your weapons and finally get that Extended Mags and Thermal Sight combo you’ve been waiting for,” announced Infinity Ward on Elite.

The event is now live on consoles until Monday, June 11th. Meanwhile, the PC version of Modern Warfare 3 has a regular double XP event though Monday as well.

It’s going to be fantastic.”

In terms of zombies, Treyarch referenced one map to be “bigger than any map [they] have ever done. It’s about just making it more open for the player, more choices, things to do. It’s going to be exciting,” concluded the brief zombies segment.

The multiplayer and zombie discussion starts at 2:53, but we encourage you to watch the whole
