Digital War Edition



Summer 1944. Europe is at war. The Allies are about to attack...

"D-Day" adds the famous landing on the coast of Normandy by the Allied Forces to the tactical World War II shooter "Iron Front – Liberation 1944". Merciless gun battles for each centimeter of the beaches await brave soldiers on the side of the Allies and the Wehrmacht alike in this extensive expansion. Brutal combat unfolds on the storm-lashed shores of France, as the future of the world is about to be decided at the Atlantic Wall... and you are in the thick of it! Fight with the Allied Forces against the dogged Wehrmacht defenders, or join the battle on the side of Germany and use any means to stop the Allies' advance.

"D-Day" introduces a whole new scenario with new weapons, military equipment and missions in both single-player and multiplayer modes (incl. co-op), as well as the Allies as a new faction. In the expansion, players can take on the roles of American soldiers, pilots and tank crews to fight for the freedom of France. The famous landing craft which carried the US soldiers to the bloody battle of liberation at Omaha Beach are of course also included in D-Day. Air support is provided by the P-47 Thunderbolt, while Sherman tanks support the advance of the ground forces.

Following the successful landing of the Allied Forces, the battles in Normandy continue with new missions featuring authentic re-creations of the military equipment of the age, including the Garand M1 rifle and the Browning automatic rifle. Players can also, for the first time, enter the war on the American side and use the new troops in multiplayer mode as well. However, the German troops are also well-prepared for D-Day: In response to frequent requests from the community, the Tiger I panzer is ready to deploy in the expansion.

Note: To install the D-Day 1944 DLC go to "expansions" and click the DLC 1 and choose "install."

the first mission i made was in a town, i was stranded in the middle, while all my men were either dead or in buildings not close to me, i dropped all my weapons and decided to run back to my own lines, on the way i ran into a submachinegun squad, who had shot me but only wounded me and not killed me, then a tank came around the corner, i recognized it was a t-34/85 so i just layed down on the road and awaited my death, with all the russian firing and the tank rubbling up the road i knew i was donefore, then everythign just exploded, and i saw russians flying everywere, and a burnin carcus of a t-34, then i saw a stuka gaining height just after it flew over, an ai saved my life, then i ran back to my lines, and was shot dead as i came round the corner, the russians beat me their

since the gamespy shutdown this game is basicly dead, you can still play this game using hamachi or evelve etc. on the other hand, If you are a Fan of the arma series this is perfect to use as a mod to arma 3, ported to arma 3 you will have a whole new experience, with tons of high quality weapons and vehicles this is a must for all arma fans alike.
