State of New World’s Games

About four months back we announced the launch of our new Insurgency game, subtitled Sandstorm. A few days ago you heard about another game – Day of Infamy – which also happens to be very close to release. We want to take this opportunity to explain where our company is in regards to its multiple game projects.

In an official blog post you can find HERE, our CEO & Game Director Jeremy Blum talks about Insurgency, Insurgency: Sandstorm, the progress of Insurgency competitive, and the very peculiar story behind Day of Infamy.

There will be a Q&A and livestream session this Sunday at 2:00 pm Eastern U.S. time where our community manager Michael Tsarouhas will be joined on stream with Jeremy. We will be using the Insurgency Twitch channel here for the time being. We will be happy to answer any of your questions you have about the future of New World’s games. So come on out with your questions!

“This game has me hooked and I see it as a proudly raised middle finger in the face of large developers who seem to completely ignore fairness and player equality in favour of potential income.”
9.0 – Hooked Gamers

“Insurgency is going to win fans for its gameplay. The action is highly competitive and focused. It brings me about as close to a real gunfight as I’ll likely ever want to get.”
75 – GamesBeat

“Insurgency is a well paced tactical shooter that's just a couple of big fixes away from competing with Counter-Strike.”

About This Game

Take to the streets for intense close quarters combat, where a team's survival depends upon securing crucial strongholds and destroying enemy supply in this multiplayer and cooperative Source Engine based experience. The follow-up game to the award-winning Source mod, Insurgency is highly competitive and unforgivingly lethal, striking a balance between one-life gameplay and prolonged action.


  • Over 40 weapons with numerous attachments, no crosshair, and a focus on realistic weapon behavior including a free-aim system and intense suppression effects.
  • 16 maps playable in day and night versions on various multiplayer and cooperative modes, ranging from environments in the Middle East, Africa, and Central Asia.
  • 7 multiplayer game modes supporting up to 32 players, with a focus on territorial control, destroying weapon caches and escorting high value targets.
  • 5 cooperative game modes where you and your friends team up to complete mission-based objectives.
  • Free content updates that include weapons, game modes, maps, and new features.
  • Offline practice mode, playing with bots on all game modes.
  • Squad system built upon role-based player classes, which are customizable and asymmetrical based on what team you are on.
  • Squad-based communication system which includes 3D VOIP, allowing friendly and enemy players within proximity to hear you.
  • Overhead map detailing objective and teammate locations.
  • Accumulate supply to customize and upgrade your gear, affecting your weight, stamina, and movement speed.
  • Simplified HUD and UI for a clean, immersive user experience focused on the action and environments.
  • Highly immersive particle FX and audio to intensify the game experience.
  • Create custom maps and content using the Insurgency SDK and scripting system, and share them on the Steam Workshop.
  • Playable on PC, Mac OSX, and Linux with multiplayer cross-compatibility.
  • Dedicated Server Support for PC and Linux.

Multiplayer Game Modes:

Push --- Three territorial objectives must be captured by the attacking team in sequential order. For each objective captured, they gain more reinforcement and time to attack the next. Defenders have a finite amount of reinforcements and must use each wisely. Once the third objective is captured by the attackers, a fourth cache objective must be destroyed, while the defenders have only one life to make a last stand.

Firefight --- Three territorial objectives, one for each team, plus one neutral. Each team only respawns when they secure an objective. Secure all objectives or eliminate all enemy to win. Every life counts, making this a very suspenseful experience dependent upon teamwork.

Skirmish --- In addition to three territorial objectives, each team has a supply cache to protect. Teams gain extra reinforcement waves until their cache is destroyed. When both teams have lost their caches and all reinforcement waves, it becomes a Firefight match.

Occupy --- There is one central territorial objective in the area. The team that controls it does not deplete reinforcement waves. This gameplay in this mode is reminiscent to King of the Hill or "tug of war".

Ambush --- A high value target ("HVT") must be escorted to an extraction point. It's one team's goal to make this happen and it's the other team's goal to stop this from happening at all costs. The HVT is only armed with a silenced pistol, but can pick up a weapon from a fallen enemy or teammate.

Strike --- Three weapon caches must be destroyed by the attacking team to achieve victory. Destroying a cache earns the attackers more reinforcements and time on the clock. The defenders must retain at least one cache from being destroyed and eliminate the enemy team once their reinforcements run dry.

Infiltrate --- The standard Capture the Flag mode, but with a twist. Your team's goal is to take the enemy's intel and return it to your base. Your team will only gain reinforcements when someone takes the enemy's intel, or when an enemy stealing your team's intel is neutralized. This mode requires very strong team coordination and strategy.

Flashpoint --- One neutral territorial objective and two caches on each side. The goal is to secure the entire area, controlling the middle and destroying the enemy's caches. Your team respawns when they secure the territorial objective or destroy a cache objective.

Elimination --- In this single life mode, attackers must destroy one of two weapon caches, or eliminate the enemy team within the time limit. Defenders must kill all attackers.

Cooperative Game Modes

Checkpoint --- Complete mission-based objectives in sequence against AI enemy. Each successful objective will respawn anyone who was eliminated along the way.

Hunt --- Insurgents are dispersed in the environment, and your squad must eliminate all targets while locating and destroying the weapons cache. High on tension, with only one-life.

Survival --- Play as Insurgents and fight against endless waves of progressively difficult Security enemies on night themed maps. Reaching safehouse objectives with your team earns you supply to purchase better weapons and spawns any dead teammates.

Outpost --- Defend your supply cache against endless waves of enemy trying to destroy it. Each successfully defended wave will bring in reinforcements of your teammates.

Conquer --- Capture the objectives in the area and defend them from enemy trying to retake them. Destroy enemy weapon caches to thin out their numbers.

nsurgency is a refreshingly new intense multiplayer FPS.

Expect no kill cam, no crosshairs, no radar, no medic or healing. No enemy damage notification. This is all hardcore realism of fun!

Maps offer a good mix for long open lanes for snipers and confined areas for short range encounters.

8 Game modes from Firefight, Search & Destroy, Skirmish, Strike, Push and so on. There are also Co-operative missions.

Gun loadouts lets you choose various amount of classes before the game starts, from support, rifleman, sniper, assault, sharpshooter and so many more. While customising your build, each costs a amount of points, but your choices will also effect your weight, the more you carry the slower you move.

It's still has a active server population of roughly 1500 people online who play it daily. And the developers have continued to add new content to the game.

If you are into these tactical shooters, and you're also looking for a truly immersive combat experience, then this game could be for you. I've been enjoying playing for many hours now, so incredibly addictive and challenging. Highly recommended!

With 150+ Hours in Red Orchestra 2 I was interested in a modern take of the one hit kill, squad based multiplayer combat; however the finished product feels like Call of Duty with long respawn times; this would be alright if there was an emphesis on taking the objectives and using teamwork but with matches that often end in under 5 minutes there is no incentive to bother strategizing and leaves everyone playing only for kills; I know some people may enjoy that but I find that kind of gameplay boring; it just is not the sort of game for me.

1. Should you quit CS:GO/Arma for this game?
2. Why?
INTENSE, Cool maps, amazing sound effects(especially bullets flying and hiting near you, it is terrifying), nice players, different game modes, all of them are fun, realistic, nice graphics, no pay-to-wins, haven't seen any hacker so far, balanced guns and respective roles (sniper, fighter, etc), grenades hurts a lot so beware, no crashes, I am running this game in a laptop so don't worry about specs.
3. Downsides?
If you play it like a fool, it is repetitive since you are going to die every 30 seconds and then wait 30 seconds to 'respawn' in some modes. You will die a lot in the beginning but you will be so excited that it will not be repetitive.
*Note: There is a 'hardcore mode' where you die once and thats it. Dead meat.

I would recommend it to all of my friends but I don't have any friends.

This is the kind of game you expect to run like Battlefield or Call of duty.
But then you come back with PTSD.
"You don't know what I've seen Mom"
"It's not a phase, Ive died in Iraq 27 times now"
"Ive spent 65 hours in the middle east Dad"

Probably one of my all time favourites.

10/10 would die in Iraq again.

This game is basic.
Or, rather, all about the basics.
It's you.
It's your gun.
It's your team.
It's the enemy.

There are no health bars, no kill streaks, no indicator on how many enemies are down, or if you did or did not kill someone. It's simply about trying to best your opponent.
As someone who leads a team of over 30 players into the field, lemme give you a piece of advice. Learn the maps. Knowing where your enemies are most likely to be expected will win, or loose the game for you. Coordinate with your team, this is one of the games where the VoIP feature is realoly an asset instead of a nuisance. Sound is important - listen to the footsteps around you. Maybe one of the enemy team is distracted enough to call his teammates on the radio close to you, enabling you to hear their strategies. Find the balance between being aggressive, or waiting for an enemy's failure - One shot can and will often mean your death, but being too slow can mean inevitable defeat.

If you're not that much into the PvP high pressure aspect, however, this game also features an extensive CoOp-mode with five (!) different modes and loads of servers out there.

If you will, please trust someone who spent over 300 hours into INSURGENCY: This game, although extremely cheap, can rival every single triple-A title in terms of content, with the only disadvantage being the game's somewhat inferior graphics (Source Engine) and a lack of a real Ladder or Ranked-system.

Just, don't expect to be instantly rewarded for kills like in CoD, in BF or even in CS:GO. Killing someone is fine. But at the end of the day, You Are A Team. And you will Win Or Fall as a team.

Insurgency - A Game you should have played.Its a great.The Graphics might be not the best,in fact Insurgency use an older Source Engine but the Explosions and the Weapon Finish looks awesome.You can choose between Insurgents and Security,each Faction has his own Weapons and Classes.Theres tons of Guns such M16,AK47,Galil,RPG-7,RPK and many many more,you wont miss any in this Game,trust me.The Community is nice,you will experience alot of People screaming "ALLAHU AKBAR" after shooting their Rocket launcher or at the end of the Match (im one of them).Also,Steam Workshop provides lot of Community-made Skins for Character Outfits,Weapon Mods such as Scopes,Maps and many more.This Game is pretty Hardcore compared to Call of Duty,Battlefield or CSGO.At the beginning its bit hard to understand what to do,where to go,where the enemy is coming from and so on.At this Point Insurgency is lot harder than the Competition and you will spend hours of hours to learn this Game.I can recommend this Game anyone who likes hardcore FPS.

Insurgency is an industry-defining FPS with beyond excellent graphics, challenging gameplay, and a plethora of gamemodes and community addons. It's almost as if Battlefield, Modern Warfare 2, and CounterStrike had a perfect baby with no bad genes.

One of the most revolutionary aspects of Insurgency is the concept of supply credits. No longer will people run around with a completely decked out rifle, three grenades, heavy armor, and a rocket launcher! Additionally, depending on the class and mode you're playing on, you may not even have enough for any one of those things. And if that wasn't challenging enough by itself, there is also a weight limit. You'll rarely run afoul of it, but when you do, you'll definitely know.

An interesting feature I have not mentioned yet is the solo gamemode. Unfortunately, there is no storyline, but the Solo mode allows you to play any mode, on any map, day or night, all by yourself. Oh, and the bots are ferocious. It's a wonderful way to practice getting familiar with weapons and maps before trying your hand at cooperative or even multiplayer. There's also a tutorial. I highly suggest you run through it, as it teaches you some very important tricks and movement commands.

The Cooperative mode pits you and up to seven other people against bots that want nothing but to take your head off, literally. Whether you're running between safe houses trying to keep everybody alive, systematically clearing the whole map via checkpoints, or just shooting as many as you can before succumbing to an unavoidable RPG, you'll find that communication is key to victory. You'll find that it is a great way to develop the communications skills needed to play competitively, should you desire to do so.

I want to take a moment to acknowledge the absolutely incredible community integration that New World Interactive supports. Everything from custom sounds to scope replacements are available on the Steam community, and all for free. Of course, if a server operator wants to turn these off, that is also available. As per Source2 tradition, server-side mods are very prolific and always available.

Multiplayer is the most saturated of the available modes, with many NWI and private servers alike filled up to the brim with fellow players. Massive battles for control points, weapon caches, and survival dominate your environment, and sometimes you'll have to do it at night, too. God help you.

In early alpha is the competitive matchmaking element. I am hesitant to like this, as professional competitive players also inadvertently bring their snotty, immature fans to the game and, just like CounterStrike Global Offensive, these underage brats ruin not just the competitive element but every mode they abuse, cheat on, and scream at in Russian. It's not easy to play this game though, so hopefully the trash will be limited to the already overplayed modes.

Overall, Insurgency is a very excellent game, and for all the reasons above, is deserved of $14.99 US Dollars. I reccomend this game highly to anyone seeking a challenge, teamplay, and lots of tension. Have fun, and I'll see you in the mountains of Peak. :)
