Shores of Victory is a realism based Half-Life total conversion modification staged in the Pacific front during World War 2. Battles are staged in non-fictional environments, meaning you can actually take part in the outcome of the war! Shores of Victory is a class based first person shooter - upon arrival in game, you may select your team - the Axis, which consists of the Imperial Japanese Army, or the Allies, which consists of the United States Marine Corps.

After the class is chosen, you are able to choose your actual in-game appearance from a large selection of player models. Next, you are able to select your arsenal. You may choose your primary weapon, secondary weapon and ammunition, as well as many other important items. The possibilities are endless. Actual gameplay...
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Shores of Victory. We love games like Half-Life that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Bigger and better
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
