Among all those gunfire and explosions, soldiers were busy fighting each other on streets of Dutch city. Aside from gunfights, melee combat will have its unique place when players will come face to face with enemies. Developers have previously disclosed about some engaging "War Story" campaign modes that will probably shape up the outcome of war. Nearing the end of the video, what we momentarily saw can be the exclusive first-look at the much-anticipated Battle Royale mode.

Call of Duty: WWII – Days of Summer Community Event

New Call of Duty: WWII community event Days of Summer makes you fight as little plastic soldiers inside a sandbox!

People are so busy with the anticipation of upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 these days from first-person shooter Call of Duty series, they have stopped talking about one of the best-selling titles of 2017, Call of Duty: WWII. So, Activision and Sledgehammer Games decided to shake things up a little bit and so, they announced a limited-time community event titled "Days of Summer" with lots of brand-new content to keep you busy during summer time and try to cool off at the same time.

A new official trailer is released detailing key-aspects of the ongoing community event Days of Summer for Call of Duty: WWII.

For those who like big things in small packages, there is a new map called Sandbox, where players will be inside of an actual sandbox, fighting as a green tiny toy soldier made of plastic. You get to explore in a beach area throughout huge sandcastles and find yourself in an environment, which is clearly unlike anything you have ever experienced in CoD: WWII. Those toy army men are available in green and gray color that actually makes everyone from a same team look indifferent.

As you are about to wander into the beach area, you will notice many props of summertime the development team has added for fun and then there is Captain Butcher. He's about to give you some trouble with his magnifying glass and will be burning the center of the map. So, you just cannot go out there and shoot around. Now, aside from combating your opponents in a sandy landscape between buckets, hose pipes and giant rubber duckie, you have to watch your back on your own.

Days of Summer event also brings back aerial dogfighting mode, which got updated and has new features in it now. A War Mode mission known as Operation Husky from the game's DLC Pack 2, where there was a final objective to complete and it was a dogfight. Previously, there were environmental obstacles that would not let you fly over the skies of Egyptian Pyramids or Crimean Mountains. However, they made it possible to fly above clouds with your zeppelins to rule the blue.

Three new summer-themed weapons, Ribeyrolles SMG, 3-Line sniper rifle and the Automaton are introduced as part of the timed event. Varieties of themed gears are rolled in to pack your arsenal as you join the battle. The event will end on August 28 and Sandbox map will come to PlayStation 4 first before PC and Xbox One. Instead of latching on to the serious tone of WWII, Days of Summer community event actually takes things easily and encourages players to be a little silly while they can.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Multiplayer Beta Trailer

An action-packed trailer showing off new features for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Multiplayer Beta event is launched.

Later this week, Multiplayer Beta for upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 from Treyarch and Activision launches for fans to test out the game before it finally releases worldwide on October 12, 2018. This will be a great opportunity to see how the game will play out on large scale for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Currently, the beta test will be focused mainly on multiplayer because they are getting rid of the traditional campaign mode for this installment.

In accordance to the increasing hype for the game, a brand-new Multiplayer Beta trailer was released earlier, showcasing brief key-moments from the beta test.

We see that the characters look quite different from the playable operators we saw before and this is probably because; they are highly customizable for more personalized experience. Another notable part from the trailer is 15 seconds of glimpses on battle royale mode Blackout. There were basically two groups of four people going against each other, which suggest that players can go up solo or in squads. Beta opens up with six maps but two of them are yet to reveal and five modes to try.

No progress made during the beta test period will be carried over to the final release of CoD: BO4, which is regularly seen in Free Weekend but participate in the program will surely earn an exclusive calling card for them when the game finally launches. However, completing the entire Multiplayer Beta is going to reward players with a Permanent Unlock Token, which can be used to unlock equipment or weapons in post-launch content Create-a-Class.

Aside from physical copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, ordering digital copies from online through Battle.net, Microsoft/Xbox Store or PlayStation Store can also get you into the fun without redeeming a beta code on official Call of Duty website. We are still waiting for details on Blackout Beta and possible release date in September to announce by Treyarch or Activision. The reason for them to not arrange an open beta is to make fans preorder the game and test out experience in a minimal scale.

Zombies' mode in CoD: BO4 allows you to choose from four playable characters throughout three Zombies episodes available at launch and two of which has already been showcased in trailer. Whether you jump into action in a four-player co-op or play along with AI-controlled partners is entirely up to you.

Star Wars Battlefront II Removes Emperor Palpatine

Following a recent update on last week, Emperor Palpatine is removed from Star Wars Battlefront II for now.

Last year's action shooter game Star Wars Battlefront II from EA Dice and Electronic Arts was one of the most hyped titles before release for adding characters from all three trilogies of films but was heavily bashed later for locking them behind pay-walls. Developers and publishers have eventually come to settlement with the fanbase and players were able to play with Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and many others. However, a recent update has apparently removed Emperor Palpatine from the game.

There is no doubt that director George Lucas has created a sci-fi phenomenon of ages with his Star Wars movie series. Many of the characters from the lore become renowned pop-culture icons over years and the antagonists of this franchise are no less popular than the good guys. One such fellow is Emperor Sheev Palpatine of the Galactic Empire and he was part of Battlefront II as well. Scoring a certain amount of points let the players unlock him from the roster.

Just like how audience discovered Palpatine to be a menacing villain in The Empire Strikes Back, he proved to be a very powerful character in the game too. His remarkable ability to use Force-Lightning for electrocuting enemies in the battlefield turns out to be chargeable through walls, which gives players an unfair advantage over opponents. Then he was nerfed down so that he couldn't do intangible attacks. An update on July 4th was about to tune it right but ended up removing him.

Many players and YouTuber communities initially believed that the update probably brought back his previous zapping abilities, even though it was actually designed to work better with close range enemies. EA Dice responded throughout official forums saying, Palpatine is currently removed and despite this being a huge decision to keep him from the game, the Sith Lord will not be deployed again until they can come up with a tweak that take cares of the problem.

"We plan to execute our Kill Switch (KS) for him. This means he will be removed from the game. He will be disabled until a hotfix can be deployed. We don’t take this decision lightly, but we feel it is in the best interest for everyone until a fix can be deployed."

It has been a week players haven't seen or heard from The Emperor and nor are they sure when will he return again to Battlefront II in full form because currently, he is still available to play offline. Unfortunately, it looks like Darth Sidious himself has gotten under his infamous Order 66 by Dice for now. Bringing changes to online games for balance is nothing new but the way EA has been handling matters related to Star Wars Battlefront II from the start is quite ridiculous.

Its developer and publisher Digital Extremes has recently confirmed that they are bringing the game on Nintendo Switch sometime very soon.

Third-person shooter Warframe pits players in the role of ancient warriors Tenno against a race of clones named the Grineer, powered by robotics and laser tech. There are more than 35 Warframe armor suits currently, loads of weapons available with wide array of customizing options. A huge open world is up for you to explore as you upgrade your armor or weapons and even join clans. Until the port finally arrives on the platform, we cannot tell how much of that are coming along.

After having successfully ported Doom and Rocket League for Switch, Panic Button studio is back to take this task to bring the experience at your grasp. Their director of development, Adam Creighton already stated last month that they are working on a major port. Considering their reputation and experience of bringing AAA titles from other platforms to Switch, we can bet that they are going to nail this one as well. Plus, they are familiar with Switch hardware from a very early period.

Warframe was launched back in 2013 for PC and PlayStation 4, then a year later in 2014, it debuted on Xbox One. Last time we checked, the game has a whooping 38 million players registered worldwide and that is not a small achievement. Debuting on Switch will definitely increase that number higher for sure and open up doorway to many other possibilities for the community. Although the trailer mention of the port is coming very soon, there is no specific release date revealed just yet.
