The Day of Infamy Steam Free Weekend starts at 10 a.m. PDT / 6 p.m. BST on Thursday October 12th and runs through until 10 a.m. PDT on Monday.

The Free Update includes:

  • New Tutorial Mission “Shooting Range” – Ahead of a wave of new players. New World have created a special training map set in the rural English countryside. Designed to help new players feel more comfortable with the games weapons and classes. All before they head out to the battlefield.
  • New Map “Brittany” – The French region of Brittany was the backdrop for a bloody siege weeks after the D-Day landings. Players will fight through the map’s rail-yards, bombed-out buildings and fortified bunkers. Brittany originally started as a community map based on the French town of Brest in the Brittany region. After placing 3rd in the Day of Infamy mapping contest. Our development team have worked hard with the level designers to flesh out the map. And are proud to now include it as official game content in the update.
  • Double Experience Points – To help new recruits quickly move up through the ranks we’re rewarding players with double experience points through the weekend to help them unlock any of the 30 different playable units.

“We are eager to have the opportunity for a new wave of players to discover Day of Infamy. Our indie WWII shooter is leading a revival of the genre that is often an overshadow by the big AAA franchises. Hopefully players will recognize the passion and talent of our modest team to craft a heart-pounding experience that is truly authentic.” —Andrew Spearin, Creative Director – New World Interactive
