Day of Defeat Classic v3.1[edit]

DoD 3.1 Steam Installer
Server List
DoD 3.1 Steam Community Group
Day of Defeat became an official Valve mod and was released as version 1.0. Prior to this Day of Defeat saw a number of revisions ultimately leading up to the final pre-official version of 3.1. With the release of 1.0 many of the gameplay elements changed and previously popular maps were removed from the game.
Because of the niche nature of playing this version most game sessions are organized through the DoD 3.1 Steam Community Group.
