If you’re a big Modern Warfare Remastered fan and you had plans across the weekend of April 21st to 24th, we suggest you find a good excuse.
That’s right, starting on Friday 21st there will be Double XP on the remake of the CoD4 classic. As per usual it starts at 10am PST (1pm EST, 6pm GMT, 4am AEST) and although unconfirmed, is expected to last through until Monday 24th at 10am PST.
The news was announced via Twitter by Amos Hodge, the lead designer at Raven Studios, the company responsible for the revamp and launch of the game alongside Infinite Warfare.
