About Day of Infamy
Day of Infamy started in 2015 as a mod for the Steam Top Seller Insurgency, created by the developers at New World and members of their modding community. Since then, New World has worked hard to stay true to their design roots, established by Insurgency, but also shaped Day of Infamy into a unique World War II shooter that can stand on its own. To date the game has sold over 500,000 copies and has led the WWII shooter revival. The game was also praised by influential independent gaming community site ModDB, winning their 2017 Community Awardand placing 3rd in Indie of the Year fan voting.
