We're excited to share the first in a series of short videos about some of the upcoming new features and improvements being developed for Insurgency: Sandstorm.
This first video shows a work in progress mechanic where two player classes who coordinate together can call for 'Fire Support'. This can come in various forms such as helicopter minigun air support, which can be shot down.
Expect more Sandstorm videos, interviews and posts in the coming weeks as well as an announcement about of our closed alpha!
We've been very quiet over the past few months busily working away on development of Insurgency: Sandstorm, the sequel to our award winning Insurgency franchise coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One next year!
As 2017 draws to a close we are excited to start sharing more progress with you and over the coming weeks will be producing a series of short videos and posts highlighting some of the exciting new features you can expect in Insurgency: Sandstorm next year, along with details on how to get involved with the closed-alpha in a few weeks’ time.

This week marked 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 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!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLJGv5U-DDc If you love Insurgency, you must try our World War II standalone Day of Infamy for free this weekend on Steam. Inspired by the classic Half-Life mod Day of Defeat, we bring the intensity of Insurgency's gameplay to the WWII era. Feel like you're an extra on the set of an epic war film!
As we get close to our upcoming Free Steam Weekend, we expect to get a lot of new Day of Infamy players that will be looking for tips to help them jump into the game. The Shooting range map is designed to give pointers to these players, but also give our experienced players a place to practice with each weapon and blow off a little steam.
On next week's livestream, we'll be playing a lot more new content! Stay tuned to our social media accounts for teases and join our livestream at our regular time: Thursday @ Noon EST! https://www.twitch.tv/newworld

If you've ever want to find out what it takes to be a competitive Insurgency player, this is your chance!
Our games were built for and by our community. Your word of mouth has allowed Insurgency and Day of Infamy to grow and has given us the opportunity to develop the types of games that we have always wanted to play.
Multiplayer games are dependent on their communities to keep an active player-base going. Steam reviews are a huge part of how Steam features our game. We want to continue growing our community so that you have more great players to play with! If you've tried our games and have had a positive experience, we invite you to leave a review!:
On this week’s livestream, our Community Manager Michael Tsarouhas will welcome modmaker Rushin’ Russian as his special guest. They'll be playing Rushin's Army of Five co-op mod for Insurgency and will answer your questions live on Thursday August 24th @ Noon EST, so join in!
Army of Five is a co-op mod created by programmer Rushin’ Russian and artist Abhorrent_Anger. The mod features five distinct classes each with its own special weapons and abilities:
- Breacher: wields a fully-auto "hot knife through butter" shotgun - Rifleman: sports two assault rifles and has a temporary godmode ability - Scavenger: fast, armored, knife-rushing madman with a flashbang pistol - Marksman: one-hit-kills enemies with his extremely precise rifle - Grenadier: has a grenade launcher and a powerful revolver
Here’s some gameplay highlights from our stream last year.
