Summer has just (officially) begun, and to celebrate, Activision is kicking off the “Days of Summer,” a new event for the Call of Duty franchise which will add fresh content to a handful of titles in the long-running series.
For those who enjoy decking out their weapons and profiles, you’ll be able to pick up a free Supply Drop each week by logging into either Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare or Modern Warfare Remastered. There are also a slew of new weapon camos and other summer-themed collectibles available for either game.
For Infinite Warfare players, you’ll be able to duke it out on the Turista map (from the Continuum DLC pack), regardless of whether or not you’ve purchased it. Activision is also including a handful of new characters, plucked straight from older titles. Depending on which Combat Rig you play as during multiplayer matches, you’ll be able to get your hands on Reyes, ETH.3N, Price, Ghost or Salter.
On Modern Warfare Remastered, players can test out a new version of the classic “Bog” map, which has been re-purposed as a sunny beachside, dubbed “Beach Bog.” For added fun, Activision has also released a new mode called Prop Hunt, which allows some players to disguise and hide as beach props, while the remaining players try to hunt them down.
If you’re still having fun with Black Ops III, you’ll be able to try out all of the maps from the Awakening DLC, free of charge. If you already happen to own it, you’ll receive Double XP instead.
The Call of Duty “Days of Summer” event kicks off today (July 11th for Black Ops III) and will last until August 1st.
