There will also be the first opportunity to play the first 'Call of Duty' PlayStation VR experience.

Rob added: "'Call of Duty XP is the ultimate Call of Duty fan experience. From the game reveals led by Infinite Warfare multiplayer to the 'Call of Duty'-inspired live experiences to the $2 million Call of Duty Championship finale, there's something for everyone."
