Just a quick heads-up on a couple Call of Duty: Black Ops II activities happening this weekend. In celebration of next Thursday's (Sept. 26th) PS3/PC launch of the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse DLC Pack, Treyarch is hosting a Double XP weekend on all consoles. If you're close to prestige, now is the time to jump in!

Also happening this weekend, Xbox LIVE is hosting a free trial of the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising DLC Pack, which features the four maps Magma, Encore, Vertigo and Studio (a re-imagined version of Firing Range from the original Call of Duty: Black Ops), and also includes the Mob of the Dead zombies experience, with Hollywood talent Ray Liotta, Michael Madsen, Chazz Palminteri and Joe Pantoliano as four mobster inmates trying to escape a zombie infested Alcatraz.
