The event actually got started a bit early, kicking off yesterday afternoon but today officially marks the beginning of the Memorial Day weekend. The event is also in celebration of the recently launched DLC Collection 2, so if you're not from America, you still have cause to celebrate! Many of us will be enjoying three day weekends from work and school so there's plenty of time to jump into some of the new maps or grind your way out to that next Prestige level.
Double XP is live on all platforms, in all playlists, as we speak! Be sure to join the FPS General Steam Group, we'll be playing Modern Warfare 3 all weekend. Consider this your open invitation to join us!
