With the 2020 Summer Olympics being cancelled, Call of Duty is still celebrating the summer games.
So what is it all about?
Season 5 Reloaded Event Release Date
Season 5 Reloaded will bring the Games of Summer on the 28th August 2020 at 10pm PT/7pm BST.
What Is The Summer Of Games?
For the first time in Call of Duty franchise history, community members from around the world will be able to represent their country single-player Trials of skill.
By earning medals in each Trial, competitors will prove which country’s Operators are truly the best in the world.
Within the Games of Summer, there are five Trials. These miniature experiences are similar to those introduced at Modern Warfare’s launch and in post-launch Season updates.
Trials will be available for Modern Warfare and free-to-play Warzone players. Players will have unlimited entries, meaning you can keep playing them to set your best time or score and go for Gold.

Individual medals will give points to a player’s respective country, determined by their account’s origin. Each country’s points will be updated daily, and the top 15 countries will be visible on in-game leaderboards. Total scoring is weighted by country participants, so any nation can rise to the top.
Earn medals and rack up your points for your country, then at the culmination of Games of Summer, a country will be crowned champion. Will there be an underdog that claims glory for a well-contested Trial at the 11th hour? Or will one country hold a commanding lead throughout the Games?
Players will be awarded a mixture of rewards for participating in this event.
