Infinity Ward posted to their official website to share the new content coming to Modern Warfare and Warzone. “Following Shadow Company’s explosive arrival to Verdansk, Games of Summer will arrive to challenge all Operators on their skills. Only the most talented will be rewarded with the spoils of the games; the prospect of which has invited a new reinforcement to the Coalition’s Warcom division.” the developer shared, tying the update into the game’s lore.
The Games of Summer event will see players facing off in ways brand new to the CoD franchise. In skill trials, players will represent their respective country in challenges that test a variety of game skills, such as aiming.

As the game nears its one-year anniversary, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is still receiving new and free content for its player base. As for Warzone, it seems as though the battle royale mode has a long life ahead of it, especially if recent Black Ops Cold War leaks are to be believed.
