UPDATE: Steam are having a Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Free Multiplayer weekend. This means that the multiplayer starter pack will be free to all Steam users until 1PM Sunday PST. Discounts will be also available for the full PC game versions throughout the Double XP event.
Treyarch have been having a good run with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Double XP weekends as of late. The latest has been announced for this weekend.
While the last was an extra special Double XP and Double Weapon XP the latest that has been announced on Twitter will be a normal Double XP event:
Good News: 2XP will go live tomorrow.
Bad News: You may need to rearrange your weekend plans.
You’re welcome. pic.twitter.com/6BQ7Eqw1Ln

This will not only be well timed for the release of the Awakening DLC for Xbox One and PC but also the owners of the stripped down multiplayer starter pack version of the game.
With this weekend being the end of the offer on the starter pack, no doubt there will be plenty of marketing around the chance to level up easy. The fact that players can’t Prestige on this version though will be an issue that many will have. Maybe the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Double XP weekend will be a good way to hint to owners of the starter pack that this is the time to upgrade to the full game.
For people who have the normal version of the game, this weekend is the time to play Zombies and the multiplayer and get some levelling up done. I know I’ll be working on earning a few levels and hitting Prestige again.
