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.
People can create mods for the game that contain all new factions, weapons, and more. With Workshop support you can expect to see custom mods, weapons, player skins, maps, and various other contributions from our talented community. We are very excited to see what the community produces.

After months of hard work and much deliberation we are proud to announce the winners of the Day of Infamy community level design contest!
In addition to winning cash and a heap of hardware prizes from Corsair, several of the maps will have the opportunity to be included officially in game as we head towards full release!
Outlined below are the winners and feedback from our lead level designer Jeroen Van Werkhoven.
A Beautiful medium sized map with a strong setting and theme. The level has a high fun factor due to its significantly designed objectives. The fort is an excellent example of that, the moment you’re pushed back by the enemy to protect the airfield it feels like taking part in a WW2 movie. Lighting is solid, but the bloom is a bit too much, especially when exiting an interior your eyes have to adapt to the brightness which can be a bit frustrating at times when fighting off the enemy. The overall art direction of this map is stellar, and the attention to detail is exceptional and deserves a lot of credit.
Well executed industrial themed map. The warehouse and factory interiors are well done. Some of the interiors could benefit from additional props to improve their authenticity. Lighting is stellar, good contrast between interior and exterior areas. Gameplay is great overall. However, due to the large scale of this map, some of the areas feel a bit to open and hard to cross. Overall the map is a lot of fun to play and easy to memorize due to its strongly defined areas.
The art in this map is awesome and goes greatly with the theme. There are many memorable play spaces that help the player to navigate through the map more easily. The dock is a great example of this. Also, the 3dskybox adds an extra dimension to the map look and feel. Gameplay is great overall but suffers a bit from linearity. The objectives are well designed but lacking some strong defensive positions. Also, spawn placement could use some work to avoid spawn camping and to improve balance. It wouldn’t harm to extend the map a bit to give the player a bit more breathing room around their main spawn areas. Brest is a great looking map with a lot of potential, huge thumbs up for the custom art.
Icy map with great potential. The iced river and bridge is a notable area and provides the map with a strong identity. The buildings feel great overall, but they lack character and detail. Lighting does its job for the setting but is a bit behind in contrast and overly-bright in areas. The art direction could use some extra attention, texture choice and props aren’t always consistent with the setting. The great design of the church is visually appealing and a fun fighting ground. Gameplay wise this map is very challenging. It’s very hard for the attacking team to cross the bridge. The attacker’s side could use some higher buildings with accessible floors and extra cover on the bridge. These additions will improve the balance and fun factor of this map hugely. The breakable windows is a nice extra but the amount could be reduced a bit to avoid repetition and to make it clear for the player that the windows are in fact breakable.
Unique theme and setting but needs a lot of work on construction and scale to match other maps. Most of the streets are quite empty. They could benefit from a bit more cover and detail to make it more appealing for the player to advance through the streets. The buildings look generic and can use more detail and textures, a bit more color wouldn’t hurt the visual side of the map. The gameplay is solid, and firefights are quite memorable when fighting from building to building. The dusty feel helps with selling the setting and makes it a lot more intense when bullets are flying around your head. Something to consider is to replace the church with a different structure, maybe a hotel or something else that fits better in the environment. Overall Tobruk has a lot of potential, and we hope to hear more from it in the future.
