The new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Days of Summer seasonal event is going live today, June 4. The initial trailer announcing the new event said, “Summertime begins June 4th in Operation Spectre Rising, and the whole crew’s ready to party.” It showed characters flipping burgers, playing ring toss, constructing sand castles, surfing, and playing volleyball. The summer event is not an entirely new update though. It is just the second half of the Spectre Rising operation. The update should be released at around 1 p.m. CT.
Summer is coming. #BlackOps4
