Insurgency Developer's World War II FPS Day Of Infamy Is Leaving Early Access On March 23rd
New World Interactive, the developer of Insurgency, announced today that its World War II first-person shooter, Day of Infamy, will be launching on March 23rd, having spent only approximately eight months in Early Access. At launch, players' ranks will be reset due to the fact that "units will be available to unlock by attaining rank milestones."
Day of Infamy will also be receiving several new features at launch. They are as follows.
- 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.
- 10 Maps: With the recent addition of Foy and Crete, a full range of environments to fight in are featured in the game.
New World Interactive Creative Director Andrew Spearin had the following to say about the announcement.
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.
For the time being, Day of Infamy is still available on Steam Early Access for $19.99. A change in price at launch has yet to be announced, but the Steam store page notes that it is a possibility. Those that purchase the game before launch will receive the following "three exclusive factions that will be retired upon launch": 1. Infanterie-Division, 1st Ranger Battalion, and Gordon Highlanders.
