The creators of Insurgency present the next installment of their successful FPS platform with Day of Infamy. Featuring tactical close-quarters WWII engagements across a wide range of multiplayer and coop scenarios, Day of Infamy is a highly intense teamwork-rewarding experience.
Read full description
Day of Infamy takes you to the battleground of Southern and Western Europe during World War II. There are 10 maps, ranging from war-torn cities to farm villages, and fortified beachheads to snow-covered forests. Whether you are fighting for the U.S. Army, Commonwealth Forces or the German Wehrmacht, there is a vast arsenal of over 70 historical weapons and attachments.
Day of Infamy features 9 player classes and 10 objective-based game modes, providing a variety of experiences depending on what you’re looking for. Objectives include capture points, officers to assassinate, enemy intelligence to carry, and destructible targets such as anti-aircraft batteries, fuel dumps and radio communication centers. Multiplayer features larger scale battles with many reinforcement waves as well as smaller scale engagements with special reinforcement mechanics. With Cooperative, there are three distinct game modes and multiple enemy difficulties to keep things challenging.
Selecting the Officer class in the game puts you at the top of your team's chain of command. Pairing with a Radioman in the field will enable you to request supply drops, smoke screens, artillery barrages, as well as aircraft strafing and bombing runs. You may also issue various tactical commands to your team such as flanking or charging an objective. Communicating effectively as an Officer will allow you and your brothers-in-arms to turn the tide of battle with an effective plan or timely radio transmission.
Day of Infamy is a highly strategic experience that rewards intelligent maneuvering and coordination with your team. Pay close attention to your surroundings, as blindly running into an open area is the easiest way to get killed. Lean around corners, lay prone to steady your aim, and walk slowly to conceal the sound of your footsteps - these are effective strategies to stay alive. A team that sticks together, advances cautiously, and uses proximity VOIP is more likely to overcome a scattered and disorganized opponent.
As you play the game, you will progress through the ranks. In the full release, you will unlock historic units as you rank up, which you can then play as ingame. Ranking up does not provide players with any gameplay advantages or incentives, so gameplay balance will always remain purely skill-based.
The game comes with mod support and Workshop integration, providing players with a vast array of community created content. Built on Valve's Source Engine, the SDK is one of the most familiar out there. Modders can replace models, textures, sounds and user interfaces in the game, as well as add new maps or total conversions using the game's theater scripting system. There are already over 480 mods which have been created during the game's early access phase.
Previews to playing the game I was told it is very much like Insurgency and indeed is, a lot things that you see in Insurgency you see in this game. Minimalistic UI, one shot and you're dead, play style revolved around your teammates, very realistic etc. It's a very enjoyable experience if you like more tactical shooters. I can't call it an great game, it does things well enough to be worth the purchase but to me it doesn't push it further. The gun play is good enough, the maps are good, the classes and the synergy between classes are the biggest improvement compared to Insurgency but I think this game can be a better, needs more development and more polish, and a revamp of the graphics, maybe there were going in for that old look but it's looks really outdated for a game that came out this year. Right now you can pick both Insurgency and Day of Infamy for less that 10? which is a very good deal. Really excited for the next Insurgency game, it looks awesome
Made by the same people who created Insurgency, Day of Infamy is an excellent multiplayer fps that pits players against each other in the European theater of WWII. The guns sound hefty, the maps are large and interesting, loadout customization is great, and the community is fun to interact with. I'd recommend this game to anybody that likes fps and WWII games. 9/10
Lovely little gem that gets overlooked too much. This game is a perfect example of how mods should be treated. Originally this was a mod for Insurgency. It does share a lot of things with Insurgency but the way they rework the original mechanics to make it fit this game results in a really fun experience. It does have some bugs but I think they can be easily fixed. There are already other conversion mods for this game and hundreds of other types, so when you buy this game you're basically getting access to a lot of free, high quality mods. This is one of the games most shining features and it carried over from Insurgency. The game also builds on what made Insurgency made great and has updated graphics that look pretty good considering the game runs on the more than ten - year -old source engine, which also means that you can run it on a relatively low end PC.
Day of Infamy is, just like insurgency, an amazing game! The graphics are great and the gameplay is alot of fun. The online community is also healthy, which wasn't the case in insurgency anymore. This game is the most fun to play with friends, but can also be played good enough alone. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars!
This is a historical shooter in the style of insurgency. Its punishing and realistic. Anyone looking for more of insurgency's core gameplay should be satisfied. The graphics and sound are good. However don't go in expecting to play like Call of Duty. This is a more tactical and demanding game.
