What You Need to Know:
- Inspired by the upcoming Christopher Nolan movie, New World Interactive is releasing its second free update for their highly-rated PC shooter Day of Infamy on July 21st. The update includes two new maps featuring the evacuation of Dunkirk and battle of Breville.
- The update also includes another new map that focuses around the Battle of Breville; in which paratroopers from the British 6th Airborne Division successfully liberated the small village of Bréville-les-Monts in France, just days after D-Day.
- 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. Some key features include the new maps Dunkirk and Breville, along with a new foliage system which improves the visual quality of grassy fields, etc. If you want to catch Day of Infamy in action be sure to check out New World's official Twitch page!

Time to suit up and get ready for battle in the trenches!
While many may not find the world war theme to be enticing, I find it fascinating that companies try to maintain the integrity of that era. It's hard to really create something authentic without breaking some rues, but these guys nailed it.
