LOS ANGELES (AP) — Activision is re-enlisting "Call of Duty XP."

The video game publisher is organizing a second edition of the fan-focused convention to celebrate the popular military shooter franchise. "Call of Duty XP" will be held Sept. 2-4 at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

The three-day event will feature this year's "Call of Duty" championship and the unveiling of the multiplayer modes from the upcoming "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare."

Activision will also bring "Call of Duty" to life with such real-world activities as a paintball battle modeled after the Nuketown map from "Black Ops III."

The inaugural "Call of Duty XP" event was held in 2011 and featured the debut of the "Modern Warfare 3" multiplayer mode and a performance by Kanye West.
