WWII FPS 'Day of Infamy' updated with new map, UI updates and a free weekend

Posted by , | Views: 5,156

The WWII FPS 'Day of Infamy' [Steam], one of the titles I listed in my Linux FPS games list, has a fresh update and you can play for free for the weekend.

First up, the free weekend starts later today. If you're on the fence about buying it, this will be a fantastic chance for you to try it out.

As pictured above, there's also a new free map named Brittany. It was originally started as a community map, but the developers themselves picked it up to finish it up for release after it came 3rd in their level design contest.

They've also put out a new training map, so new players can get familiar with the game. In addition, they also polished some UI animations and sounds, updated various graphical models and fixed a bunch of bugs.

It's a pretty damn fun game, but it does suffer one small problem. When you load it on Linux, it doesn't show you as in-game through Steam, which means the party system doesn't work. It's the same issue with Insurgency. The developers told me to put in a support ticket, but a week later I've had no reply. Minor, but annoying.

Do any other AMD Gpu users experience a steam crash when trying to launch DOI or Insurgency. This game ran fine with Mesa <17.1.3 and an AMD RX580, but as soon as I updated to 17.1.4 or 17.2 the game's startup crashes steam. Day of Infamy fails to load because it require the steam client running. This happens for me on both Arch and Solus. Any ideas?

I found that the game runs fine with "steam-runtime", but crashes with "steam-native".
Also, the game appears to crash on launch, but a bit of patience (and clicking wait on the popup), and the game runs fine.

Super fun and realistic shooter without all the bells and whistles of AAA titles nowadays

Hmm, after a couple weeks of crashes, the runtime works for me now. Go figure. Not complaining though!
