This week marks the 10th anniversary of the original Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat release on Steam! In honor of the mod that gave birth to Day of Infamy, Insurgency and Sandstorm, we're inviting a number of our team members that were involved in the original mod's development to join this week's livestream[www.twitch.tv] on Thursday October 26th @ Noon EST. We'll be discussing the history of the mod, the formation of New World and its influences on our other games!
Follow us on Twitch and turn on notifications if you need a reminder. Ask your questions via this Facebook, Twitter, or live on Twitch Thursday[www.twitch.tv]!
Today the commercial version of Insurgency is a Daily Deal in the Summer Sale! If you have not yet purchased the game, now is a great time. 2,600 concurrent users playing online right now, and the game won't be on a deeper discount for some time.
Since our last update over two weeks ago, Insurgency has seen a bunch of content and game updates which include the following:
- Experimentation with larger environments - Introduction of cooperative game mode - Map updates and improvements - Initial implementation of realism mode (working with community to flesh this out) - Various crash and game fixes as well as balance tweaks
Some of the things we have planned for the future:
- Push game mode - Night maps with flash lights - Light Machine Guns - New gear customization options and further expansion of the current class system - Map overview for better team coordination - More multiplayer and cooperative maps including a few from the original: Sinjar, Baghdad and Almaden.
For a more detailed list of the things that have been changed since our early access launch three weeks ago, check out the updates section[www.playinsurgency.com] of our forums.
We are currently working on getting the game in Steam's new "Early Access" section. To learn more about what Early Access is, check out the Early Access FAQ page. In the mean time if you're interested in getting the game before it goes up on Steam, you can purchase a key on our website[www.playinsurgency.com].
First of all, THANK YOU to our fans for sticking through years of waiting to finally play the latest iteration of INSURGENCY.
Despite some technical difficulties at launch time, the game is running and most importantly the community feedback is rolling in!
Today, we have deployed our first update with various bug fixes and gameplay balance tweaks. Check out the changelog here.[www.playinsurgency.com]
We plan on releasing updates every Friday (today was an exception), and having a subsequent play-with-the-devs sessions. These will be posted as events in the official game group.
We are also diligently compiling some of the best feedback and will address the design direction of the game - especially when it comes to realism and the reimplementation of features INS fans are accustomed to. Look for that soon.
Once again, thank you everyone for your commitment to the game and having faith in us that we can deliver a premier product over time. This is just the start!
New World Interactive is proud to announce the launch of INSURGENCY early access!
Get the game on our website and let us know what you think on our forums[www.playinsurgency.com]. We are particularly interested in what people that played the mod think, especially in designing our 'realism' mode[www.playinsurgency.com]
