Days of Summer special event returns in Call of Duty: WWII, lasts until Aug. 28


The annual Call of Duty Days of Summer community event is starting a little later than usual, but the summertime special has arrived.

Starting today, July 31, to Tuesday, Aug. 28, Call of Duty: WWII, Infinite Warfare, Modern Warfare Remastered, and Black Ops III players will get to experience community-exclusive features during the summer-themed event. One of the main features includes a new game mode where players are miniature toy soldiers battling each other in an actual sandbox. The sandbox mode will be exclusive to PS4 for 30 days, however, meaning Xbox One and PC players will not get the mode until after the event concludes.

In addition to the sandbox mode, players will also get the chance to try out the three new weapons—the Ribeyrolles SMG, 3-Line sniper rifle, and Automaton. There will also be some summer cosmetics that will be available, which will likely be popular among the playerbase.

The Days of Summer began in Call of Duty: Black Ops III, and it has since become an annual event. Last year, both Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered featured the event with new content in the form of maps, weapon variants, and more.

Since Sledgehammer didn’t confirm whether Days of Summer would be coming back for a good bit of the summer, some fans worried that it would never come to the game. Now, the event is not only confirmed, but the trailer has revealed new content that will be coming throughout the month, including more “summertime mayhem” next week. There will also be a new community challenge, dogfighting mode, Leprechaun Hunt, and Prop Hunt. So fans can expect at least that content sometime during the next few weeks.
