Experience intense close-quarters battles in iconic WWII settings. Day of Infamy is a teamwork-oriented shooter which aims to be a continuation and evolution of the original Day of Defeat mod released in 2001 - brought to you by the creators of Insurgency.
Intense core infantry mechanics and a simplified HUD create a highly visceral and immersive experience. With a reinforcement wave system tied to objectives, the game maintains an emphasis on teamwork and coordination.
Iconic WWII Battles
From the shores of Sicily and streets of Italy, to the forests of Belgium and Germany. And of course the Normandy beaches.
The Allied infantry forces of the British Commonwealth and U.S. Army clash against the German Wehrmacht.
Depending on your team’s supply, you may customize and upgrade your gear and weaponry, affecting your appearance, weight, stamina, and movement speed. The game contains a full-range arsenal including bolt-action rifles, pistols, revolvers, submachine guns, heavy machine guns, grenades, and flamethrowers. Fix bayonets, extend magazines, or swap iron sights with period-specific customization options.
Officers can direct their team in the field. In addition to a wide variety of command options, they may call in fire support if a radio operator is nearby. Fire support options include artillery barrage and smoke screen. Local voice is used to talk to your teammates in the game, but be careful because the enemy can hear you if you’re too close. Radio operators also serve as a communication beacon to those around them, as HQ and radio operator chatter can be heard through them.
Designed for up to 32 players engaging in sustained infantry combat, battling over territorial and destructive objectives that increase your reinforcements.
Both teams are given the objective of pushing through the map. A team wins when all objectives have been captured, or if the time runs out and a team has majority control of the battlefield.
To win, your team must capture all territorial objectives to liberate the area. Capturing points will gain your team more reinforcement waves. You will gain more waves by securing points behind enemy lines.
The attacking team must capture one point at a time pushing back the entrenched enemy. When objectives are secured by the attacking team, additional waves and time is added to prolong the battle.
8 player squads battle a challenging AI opponent in attack or defense modes.
Move through enemy held territory and secure the area. Your team will be reinforced each time an objective is secured.
Patrol the surrounding area. Be especially careful, as there are no reinforcement waves in this mode. Once your squad has reached its waypoint, you must either return to base or eliminate any discovered enemy forces in the area.
Defend the line at all costs. Make sure to fall back and regroup occasionally to keep your squad reinforced.

Inspired by the upcoming Christopher Nolan movie, New World Interactive is releasing its second free update for their highly-rated PC shooter Day of Infamy on July 21st. The update includes two new maps featuring the evacuation of Dunkirk and battle of Breville.
“Our Dunkirk map offers a unique gameplay perspective by inverting the flow of battle so it ends on the beach instead of starting there,” explains creative director Andrew Spearin.
“The Miracle of Dunkirk” was one of the biggest turning points of WWII. With the fate of the Allied forces hanging in the balance, a flotilla of civilian crafts helped evacuate 338,226 troops that were cut off and surrounded on the beach of Dunkirk, France.
The update also includes another new map that focuses around the Battle of Breville; in which paratroopers from the British 6th Airborne Division successfully liberated the small village of Bréville-les-Monts in France, just days after D-Day. The battle was dubbed “one of the most important battles of the invasion”.
“The Breville map highlights our new foliage system while the gameplay is highly intense from extensive testing in collaboration with our community,” says Spearin.
The free Day of Infamy Dunkirk Update includes:
The launch will coincide with a Twitch livestream on Friday, July 21st @ 12:00 EDT on New World’s Twitch channel. New World has been refining both maps with the community on the stream over the last month. Footage of those tests is available on New World Interactive’s YouTube account.
Day of Infamy started in 2015 as a mod for the Steam Top Seller Insurgency, created by the developers at New World and members of their modding community. Since then, New World has worked hard to stay true to their design roots established by Insurgency, but also shaped Day of Infamy into a unique World War II shooter that can stand on its own. To date the game has sold over 200,000 copies and has led the WWII shooter revival.
The Dunkirk update is live on Steam, so ensure to update your game. Here is the full changelist!
After months of hard work and much deliberation we are proud to announce the winners of the Day of Infamy community mapping contest!
