Game Preview Insurgency 2 – March 11, 2013

Dedicated cult followings are the backbone behind any popular game mod, and some are so popular that they become full-fledged games, like Killing Floor, Team Fortress 2, and Counter-Strike. Coincidentally, a good number of these ascended mods begin life as multi-player Half-Life modifications, so it was no surprise that one as popular as INSURGENCY: Modern Combat would find new life as a standalone title in Insurgency 2.

Insurgency First Update

Denver, Colorado – March 5, 2013

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. The NWI devs will be playing on the servers tonight and Thursday night 3pm PST, so come join us! We plan on releasing updates every Friday (today was an exception), and having a subsequent play-with-the-devs session. 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! See you in the servers.

New World Interactive Provides Early Access to Insurgency Today at 6pm Pacific

Denver, Colorado – March 1, 2013

New World Interactive announced today it is opening its doors to the gaming community with “Early Access” to play INSURGENCY, its tactical first-person shooter, currently in development. Through its “Early Access” program, NWI will make INSURGENCY available to the public today at 6 pm PST — and livestream it to the world via Destructoid’s TwitchTV show Mashtactics, at 4 pm PST. INSURGENCY‘s “Early Access” invitation is an example of an indie development team working directly with its community to create a compelling combat experience, while distinguishing itself from mainstream shooters. The game moves away from a release-package publishing model to a persistent development process that adapts an established genre with the future of social gaming. “Early Access,” a pre-beta look at the development of INSURGENCY, enables participants to talk and play with the developers, for the price of $19.99. This will provide players with the Early Access build, the subsequent Beta, and the final game when it ships later this year. To Join “Early Access,” go to the INSURGENCY site at: INSURGENCY is a first-person team-based shooter for up to 32-plus players designed for Windows® PC and Mac OS X (and in the future, Linux), using Valve’s Source Engine and distributed through the Steam platform. If the name INSURGENCY sounds familiar, that’s because it is based on the popular total conversion for Half-Life 2 — Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat — that saw more than a million free downloads and was awarded the ModDB “Player’s Choice Mod of the Year” in 2007. Key features to INSURGENCY include:
  • Intense 32-plus player online action with a focus on teamwork
  • Customizing the game’s arsenal to player’s preferred style
  • Choosing from three unique classes that affect movement on the battlefield
  • Highly immersive audio with 3D VOIP to coordinate with and track other players
  • Playing the most popular maps and game modes, and helping the development team prototype new ones

New World Interactive gets a New Website


New World Interactive is proud to announce that we have a new website.



New World Interactive is proud to announce that it will be showing off it’s first title, Insurgency 2, at GDC Play 2012 in San Francisco on March 6th to 8th. People will be able to come up to our “pod” and play the game at their own convenience. We are quite happy to be showing the game to the public at this time, as the game is quite fun to play online. We have done our best to stay true to the original Insurgency mod’s core gameplay fundamentals, while improving upon them and bringing about some new features along the way. We have just a week ago entered Alpha and started internally testing. The players are mostly people that used to play INS mod competitively. The feedback has been great so far. We’re looking for more US based testers, so if you’re interested you can apply on our forums.
