Community manager Chris Roper (beyond!) made the announcement on the official SOCOM website this evening.
"In an effort to help bring everyone back up to speed, we're doubling any and all XP earned during competitive multiplayer games for the near future," he wrote.
"You don't have to do anything other than complete a game to reap the benefits of our limited-time 'Double XP' bonus, so get out there and lock and load!"
We think SOCOM 4's multiplayer is pretty neat, so any excuse to dive back in after the PlayStation Network outage is welcome from us. Maybe Zipper could give us an extra hour in the day to allow us to play too?
