Day Of Infamy Update [Feb 9th 2017]- Huge Update

We are releasing an update to Day of Infamy today to add two new maps Crete and Foy, new and improved coop and PvP game modes, better optimization, visual improvements, balance changes, and more.

UPDATE 2-10-17: We are releasing a hotfix today to address some issues and make further balance changes. Mapmakers, please be aware that from now on in order to load your custom map you now will require a map script. You can copy a script from an official map and rename it to your map, and it should work fine. To any Mac users who are still unable to use the radial menu since yesterday’s update, please see here. You can see these hotfix changes below, followed by the full update changelist.

Full update changelist below:


  • New map “Crete” formerly “Mercury” by The0rthopaedicsurgeon winner of the DOI mapping contest.
  • New work in progress map “Foy”.


  • New and improved cooperative modes
    • NEW: “Raid”
      • In this new mode there are many possible objectives in the area, but three are randomly selected each round. The objectives range from capture points, to assassination targets, to destructible objects such as fuel dumps and artillery batteries. Securing, eliminating, or destroying a target will respawn dead players on your team.
    • “Stronghold”
      • Stronghold has evolved to take advantage of new types of objectives, such as destructible fuel dumps, artillery batteries and officers to assassinate. The mode has been changed to support any number of active objectives within a particular phase, instead of always being two.
    • “Entrenchment”
      • Entrenchment has been changed to focus on one defense position at a time instead of two. This increases the intensity of the mode as the enemies focus on attacking a single position.
  • New and improved limited life multiplayer modes
    • NEW: “Firefight”
      • Firefight is a highly popular mode from Insurgency which we decided to bring over to Day of Infamy. Teams battle over three objectives and receive reinforcements only after capturing.
    • NEW: “Intel”
      • Intel is a work in progress single life mode where one team must return found intelligence to their home base while the opposing team attempts to intercept them en-route.
    • “Sabotage”
      • First introduced in the last update, the mode has seen balance improvements and now utilizes fuel dumps as the first two objectives, with the final objective being an artillery battery. Fuel dumps are easier to destroy than artillery batteries. There are also now restricted areas, to prevent spawn camping.


  • Texture streaming
    • Player and weapon textures will now only be loaded on-demand instead of remaining resident in memory resulting in much lower memory usage and increased performance.

Since this update is so large I wanted to highlight a few things I found both interesting and got me excited. It adds 2 new maps from the DOI mapping contest, one of them being Foy. Also I’m very excited to see updates to the sandbag models as I’ve always felt they were basic but functional. There is also updated audio for the Sten and my personal favorite weapon the STG-44. One of the first things I changed when I got the game was the M1 Garand wood skin texture. It looks like they have updated the default skins for the M1 Garand along with the MP40 and Enfield. I’m excited to check those out. Lastly they also added new 7x and 4x scopes. I’m usually always happy to see model/texture and sound updates to games. Never hurts to make things just a bit prettier.

There also gameplay fix’s most notably “Various class kit balances and tweaks”, while there isn’t specifics for what this entails, I can only hope that prices to weapons and equitable items were tweaked a bit to allow for having 2 weapons a bit earlier.  Now something I’m not to happy about is “MG34 recoil and handling balanced to match its Commonweath and US Support class counterparts.” as this usually means they moved away from realism to bring the game into balance. Most of the time I’m okay with that but one of my exceptions is when it’s based on actual real life historic things that can be measured.

Overall I’m very excited about this patch and can’t wait to see more as this game continues to develop. To stay up to date with all DOI news and updates make sure to check out their site.
