Achievements, avatars, and stats coming to the popular WWII game.
A new update adding support for Steamworks is currently available in beta for Day of Defeat: Source, the popular World War II online action game from Valve, creators of the Half-Life and Counter-Strike games.
Leveraging the recently released free set of services available in Steamworks, the Day of Defeat update will add 51 achievements for DoD, player avatar display in the scoreboard and win panel, and detailed player statistics integrated with the Steam Community features (www.steamcommunity.com).
This update also adds support for popular features introduced in Valve's Team Fortress 2 (TF2), the PC title named multiplayer game of the year by Gamespy.com and PC Gamer. These include "nemesis/revenge" freeze cam and new effects driven by the particle system introduced to the Source engine for TF2.
In addition, this update will also introduce a new map, dod_Palermo, which is a remix of the most popular community map, dod_salerno.
Owners of Day of Defeat: Source, retail and Steam versions, may join the beta free of charge. For more information about Day of Defeat: Source or to join the beta, please visit www.steamgames.com
