The announcement for the 19 analyst and commentators for CoD XP has also revealed further information around how the event can be viewed.
As the biggest Call of Duty event in history, with over $2 million in prize money and 32 teams from across the world, the viewing experience is an important aspect. The XP Zone aims to make watching the spectacle a breeze.
The aim of the XP Zone, hosted by Jack ‘Courage’ Dunlop, will be to dip in and out of the 4 streams that will be beaming the action across the world, allowing for one holistic view of what is going on. Further details on exactly how it’ll work haven’t been revealed, but it’s expected that when a game or map is reaching a critical point, the stream will cut to it.
Dexerto will be in attendance at CoD XP 2016 to bring you all the latest updates, interviews, pictures and more from the biggest event of the year.
