Treyarch rolled out the latest update to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which adds previously PS4-exclusive Days of Summer to all platforms, together with free Grind map and CTF, brings back Hot Pursuit on Xbox One and PC, and a bunch more.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Community Challenge is all about the community's work, as Treyarch set the goal for 15 million public matches. Once reached, Grav assault rifle will be available to all players in Multiplayer.

Also coming to all platforms as part of Days of Summer are the free Grind map, a fresh version of Black Ops 2's skatepark map, and Capture the Flag mode.

Treyarch added multiplayer support for half a dozen Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 weapons, and we're talking about Grav assault rifle, Peacekeeper assault rifle, Vendetasniper rifle, Locus sniper rifle, S6 Stingray tactical rifle and the Ballistic Knife. 

Blackout's PC and Xbox One editions are getting the summer makeover as well, with new summer-themed foliage and lighting added to the map.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 players will find coolers throughout the map, each coming with Paint Can bundle rewards, as well as throwable Water Balloons, so you can cool someone off in these hot days, wink wink. 

Blackout's map has been updated to reflect a post-flood state, with receding water, Hydro Dam under construction and such, which will be a perfect setting for Ground War - Treyarch's 50 vs. 50 Blackout mode.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's update also adds two vehicles to Blackout - Attack Helicopter with two heavy-hitting combat turrets and Outrider's Hawk, which helps with scouting for enemies.

As for Zombies, Treyarch added a new Gauntlet for Ancient Evil, which comes with 30 unique challenges, new elixirs, proximity reviving and support for S6 Stingray, Peacekeeper, Vendetta, Locus, Ballistic Knife, Grav assault rifle attachments and new Mastercraft weapons.

With the new update, PlayStation 4 owners will see the return of Alcatraz, with two new destinations. A multi-level submarine has appeared on one side of the island, while on the other end, there's a torn-apart Shipwreck sitting on the shore.
