"With true to life WWII weapons and multiplayer at its best, Day of Defeat captures the intensity and emotion of fighting alongside other soldiers in the battlefields of Western Europe," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "Whether you're playing as Allied or Axis forces, Day of Defeat takes the fast-paced action and heart-stopping gameplay that its fans have come to crave to a higher level with updated graphics and new maps and classes."
Day of Defeat features fifteen multiplayer maps and an incredible collection of historic weaponry that provide for an intense brand of team-based warfare. The game also includes all new character models, new animations, increased textures and particle effects system.
"Day of Defeat has broken through to become one of the most popular online action games in the world, second only to Counter-Strike," said Gabe Newell, co-founder and managing director of Valve. "Through our new publishing partnership with Activision we hope to extend that reach even further, exposing Day of Defeat's award-winning gameplay to new audiences across the world."
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.
Compatibility is not a problem, as new Day of Defeat consumers can also take on current online players by jumping directly into the action to play on several of the game's toughest maps -- for intense, populated and competitive battle action immediately.
