You might have heard that a little film called Dunkirk has just come out. The folk at New World Interactive certainly have: they’ve updated their hardcore WW2 shooter Day of Infamy [official site] with two new maps, one of which is – you guessed it – the beaches of Dunkirk.
The Dunkirk map fights from the fields, through the streets, and to the beach. The other new map depicts the Battle of Breville, which in real life saw British paratroopers liberate the village of Bréville-les-Monts in France just after after D-Day.
It’s all available completely free, which is nice. Here’s the trailer:
But if you thought that was enough content for a free update, you’re wrong.
The developers have also unveiled… wait for it… EXCITING NEW GRASS. There’s a trailer and everything. Top notch swaying.
Check out the update’s patch notes for details.
If you haven’t played Day of Infamy, then think of it as the spiritual successor to the old Day of Defeat. It’s a stripped-back shooter with no radar, no killcams, and no minimap. Just some old-fashioned weapons, sandbags, and your mates in the trenches to keep you company. Here’s what Brendan thought back when it was still in early access:
“Day of Infamy is a fine return to the trenches. Admittedly, it doesn’t do anything revolutionary with the genre but what it does, it does very well. I have yet to pick up an enemy grenade and throw it back to them – something the tooltips say you can do – but I imagine when the time comes I will bravely grab the explosive, fumble the throw with great pride, and blow up half of my loyal squad with all the courage and conviction of a true soldier.”
