Infinity Ward has revealed plans for a double-XP weekend for Modern Warfare 2 when the upcoming Stimulus Package DLC goes live.

"Mark the calendars now! April 2nd - 5th marks the first Double XP weekend on #MW2 for #xboxlive worldwide. New Maps + Double XP = No sleep," IW's Robert Bowling tweeted.

"PS3 will also get Double XP when DLC hits PSN, although that comes later," he added. DLC for other platforms is expected around a month after the Xbox Live release on 30th March, due to an exclusivity deal with Microsoft.

The Stimulus Package DLC introduces five multiplayer maps - three new, and two brought back from the original Modern Warfare.
