Tuesday, 5 July 2011 03:33 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The initial qualifier of the Call of Duty XP tournament to be announced sees Australians having first crack at what’s almost certainly to be one of the biggest eSports events of the year.

Level 3 reports the qualifier will be held at the Monash Computer Games Boot Camp on July 13.

Restricted to ages 18+, the tournament will be the world debut of Modern Warfare 3’s multiplayer in a competition setting.

The highest placed team of four will win an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles in September to take part in the Call of Duty XP tournament.

Details on how to register are expected to surface later today. We’ll keep you posted.

Call of Duty XP will take place on September 2 and 3, with tickets on sale July 19. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is due on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November.
