A new community event has gone live in CoD: WWII with the latest update, called ‘Days of Summer’, adding some major new features – including an aerial dog-fighting mode.

Despite the hype train for Black Ops 4 already well on its way, Sledgehammer are still piling in new content and updates to WWII, keeping the game fresh throughout its cycle.

The new sandbox map will be available for PS4 players first – for free – and you won’t be playing with your normal characters.

In this map, you get miniaturized, plasticized, and turned into a tiny toy soldier before being plopped down into a beachside sandbox. That’s where you’ll navigate the massive sandcastles and beach toys and do battle in an environment totally unlike anything else in Call of Duty: WWII.

Those who played the CoD: WWII campaign will also remember there was a dog fighting mission, where you had control of a fighter plane and battled out in the skies.

For the first time, this will be making an appearance as a multiplayer mode in CoD: WWII:

“A lot of people in the studio and in the community were really excited about that mode, and it became a pet project for us. We started to think… ‘What if we could fly over the mountains?’ So we did that, and then it became ‘What if we could fly into the mountains!?’ and we did that too.”

You can even earn scorestreaks in this mode, with the Flak Gun streak taking out enemy fighters.

Players can battle in the sweltering skies above the Egyptian Pyramids, or swoop in and around the clouds of the Crimean Mountains. There are now environmental obstacles for the player to navigate with their warbird, as well as huge zeppelins and white puffy clouds dominating the skyline. Players can use the obstacles to shake off bogeys and stay alive long enough to earn a Flak Gun Scorestreak.

The Days of Summer event has gone live on July 31, as part of the latest update – you can find the full patch notes here.

The community even lasts for the entire month, ending on August 28 – so plenty of time to dig in once the Black Ops 4 beta is over with too.

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
