In Day of Defeat gamers team-up to form elite squads for quick strike combat and rugged warfare through historically accurate World War II locations. Powered by Valve's Half-Life technology, the game's multiplayer scenarios drop players into the boots of either a U.S. or an all-new British troop, or a German division of soldiers for intense Allied vs. Axis battles throughout Western Europe. Gamers play as one of several classes of soldiers, including snipers, infantry, machine gunners, riflemen and sergeants, as they are tasked to complete missions and goals unique to each playable battlefield.

Day of Defeat is the latest online action experience from Valve, makers of Half-Life and Counter-Strike. Stationed in the heat of WWII's European theater of war, players join the ranks of an elite military squad. Missions are based on key historical operations. And, as war rages, squads must battle as a unit to achieve victory.

Features :

  • WWII Authentic battles – realistic scenarios, locations and weapons.
  • Squad-based combat with well-trained soldiers – teammates crouch, prone, lean, give hand signals, provide covering fire. Class system gives each player a unique role
  • Connect With Other Players: Built in support for voice communication, plus in and out of game instant messaging.
