The Day of Defeat: Source wiki last edited by Jagged85 on 06/18/13 08:39AM View full history

Overview

Day of Defeat: Source is the sequel to the Half-Life mod Day of Defeat, a multiplayer first-person shooter set in World War II. Like Counter Strike: Source, the game offers a Source engine update to the original's visuals, sound and gameplay, with minor tweaks to its formula.

Players assume the role of US Army (Allies) or Axis (Wehrmacht) troops and choose between six classes, each with unique weapons. Teams are tasked with either holding strategic points or detonating those of the enemy.

It is also the first Valve release other than the free Lost Coast level for Half-Life 2 to incorporate High Dynamic Range lighting.
