So welcome back to war-torn Europe. Hence New World Interactive, creators of Insurgency and Insurgency: Sandstorm are keen to #announce the Day of Infamy #fullrelease. Which will available via #Steam on Thursday, March 23, 2017.

So the World War II multiplayer and cooperative shooter entered Steam Early Access on July 28, 2016. Since then, Day of Infamy has continued to hold a Very Positive (89%) user review status on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Now as the game moves into full release, since the developers at New World are keen to announce additional features including:

  • Unit System: Collect digital militaria items in the form of new character art representing various regiments and divisions for each faction. Rank progression unlocks a random unit for players to use or trade. Within a unit, new character artwork includes arm patches, hats, helmet stencils, uniforms, camouflages, and voice over.
  • Commando Cooperative Difficulty: A new playlist for PvE Cooperative gameplay featuring elite AI opponents and limited fire support options.

“With launch date on the horizon, we are feeling the hype from our community and know that gamers are ready for this visceral WWII experience,” said New World Creative Director Andrew Spearin.

Hence from entrenched shores to battered streets, Day of Infamy takes the player into intense close-quarters WWII infantry combat. So what started out as an Insurgency mod has transformed into a full-fledged standalone game built with Source Engine. Inspired by Day of Defeat, Day of Infamy builds off the atmosphere and nostalgia of this classic experience, but adds more visceral and intense core infantry mechanics.

The full release of Day of Infamy launches on March 23, 2017. The game is currently available in Early Access for $19.99 on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC.
