People are going to compete in 'Call of Duty' at the X Games

New, 56 comments

The world's best Call of Duty players will soon square off at ESPN's X Games. For the first time ever, ESPN and Major League Gaming have teamed up to produce the MLG X Games Invitational, a three-day contest that will take place starting June 6th at X Games Austin. MLG says it's rounded up eight of the premier CoD teams, and they'll all be racking up kills to earn medals — the same ones going to world-class athletes competing in events like skateboarding, BMX, and Moto X.

The MLG Invitational will be showcased in a big way with its own tent and a dedicated tournament area. If you can't make it in person, the competition will also be streamed at, through MLG's mobile apps, and also via MLG's Xbox 360 app. But if you are attending X Games Austin, shelling out $100 on top of the regular three-day pass cost will get you reserved seating in the MLG tent, an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour, a gift bag, and the opportunity to meet the Call of Duty players taking part.
