Default Day Of Defeat: Source on September 26.

Looks great. Worth the wait!

Also video 5 of the week at Valve has a little video that shows about 5 seconds of gameplay. Looks great but they added iron sights to the game.

****************************

Day of Defeat®: Source™ (DoD: Source), the latest version of the WWII online action game from Valve®, will be made available to gamers everywhere on September 26.

"Day of Defeat has quietly been one of the most played online action games for the past three years," said Gabe Newell, president and founder of Valve. "Day of Defeat: Source represents a major leap forward in both graphics and gameplay, and pushes the Source engine harder than any other Source project. "

DoD: Source takes the classic teamplay of DoD and expands the experience with Source, the engine technology Valve created for Half-Life® 2 and it's next generation of games. With this technology, DoD: Source offers state of the art graphics with optimized versions of popular maps and all new player, weapon and world models, plus support for HDR lighting.

DoD: Source leverages the power of the Source engine by introducing advanced sound technology to provide a more immersive soundscape and integrated physics simulation technology for ragdolls and physically simulated objects throughout each map.

Available via Steam for just $19.95 and in the Counter-Strike: Source retail package, DoD: Source is a rebuild from the ground up of Day of Defeat on the Source engine.

DoD: Source will be available for pre-load and pre-order next week. Those who purchased the Half-Life 2 Silver or Gold Steam offers will receive a request to pre-load the game at this time and will receive access to play the moment the game is made available.

For more information, visit www.steampowered.com

Valve, Day of Defeat and Source are trademarks or registered trademarks of Valve Corporation in the United States and/or other countries.

Why argue which ones better when you can just play on all of them?

I would take that as official confirmation that this isn't available for collectors edition owners.

Bitch at Vivendi Universal... They were incharge of the retail packaging. Valve can only control their steam service... thats the benefit of dealing with the developers directly and not the publisher who screwed them over...

If it has HDR then can we assume that LC will be out this month?

DoD: Source was the only reason I went with the silver package. The fact that it took them a year to port it over then replace the models and maps is ridiculous.

Well now that I got that out...

I'm starting to regret buying the CE more and more.

From what im hearing now DoD:S will be NOTHING like DoD. Its a brand new game with all new features and has almost nothing in common with DoD. So you may just have to try it out and like it.

That not what DoD programmer Matt Boone said in his interview with CGW:

Quote:
Rather than saying, 'Screw it--let's leave what works behind and reinvent the wheel, we're giving the game state-of-the-art graphics, audio, physics and all that stuff.
I'm glad they decided not to screw with the gameplay. DoD is great the way it is. Later they plan on adding more content, but the inital release will be good old DoD with a new coat of paint.

Doesn't really matter to me... I prefer the more realistic Red Orchestra (UT2k4 mod) over any other WWII shooter.

Besides... I get screwed over because I bought the regular version in stores. I blame "Vivendi", and by that I mean Valve... just figured I would say vivendi because Magus will cry about how it is their fault. Even though technically Vivendi couldn't put DoD:S on the hard copies due to the fact that it took a year to do...
