Bridge at Remagen by ThirdEye

Starting May 6th, New World Interactive will host 5 custom servers for Day of Infamy community-made maps to help determine which maps will be included in the next official update for the mod. The community will help decide the winners by voting for their favorites in a survey.

To launch the event, NWI creative director Andrew Spearin will host a livestream and invite all the level designers to join in playing through each map to gain feedback from both the community and fellow designers.

There are many excellent DOI maps in progress that we are excited to playtest. For a DOI map to be included, it must be published on Workshop by May 6th. Hopefully the maps that are not uploaded to Workshop yet are able to have them ready to playtest in time for the event. Iteration and updates throughout the playtesting phase are encouraged. The timeline for testing and the deadline for selecting the top map are to be determined.

For a preview of maps being made for the Day of Infamy mod, check the official forum.

We are livestreaming today, Saturday April 16th, at 3:00 pm EST with modder Rushin’ Russian and his new coop mod Army of Five. You can tune in here.

This is our FINAL LIVESTREAM from our US East location. After a break, our official livestreams will resume broadcasting from New World Interactive’s Amsterdam studio. These upcoming streams will show off more official Insurgency: Sandstorm related content, and will show community content alternating or at a separate timeslot. So come out tonight and celebrate well over a year of our weekly community broadcasts!

Created by programmer Rushin' Russian and artist St_Anger1, the Army of Five mod turns Insurgency into a class based five player cooperative experience. Fight against challenging new bots and play as one of the following classes with special weapons and abilities:

Breacher - Autoshotgun!
Rifleman - Two assault rifles and temporary God mode
Scavenger - Exoskeleton and a big knife
Marksman - One shot kill battle rifle
Grenadier - Grenade launcher and snub nosed revolver

But text doesn’t do them justice. See them kick ass in this ROCKIN’ gameplay trailer!
To play Army of Five follow these simple steps:
1. Make sure that Insurgency is closed.
2. Subscribe to the mod here on the Steam Workshop.
3. Start Insurgency and you will see "Army of Five" under "Cooperative" menu!

If you are interested in hosting a server yourself, there are easy to follow instructions in the description of the Workshop page.

As always, we’ll be happy to answer any questions in the stream about Insurgency.

We are livestreaming today, Saturday February 27th, at 3:00 pm EST interviewing Andrew Spearin, creative director of Insurgency. You can tune in here.

Earlier this week we announced Insurgency: Sandstorm, a technical and visual overhaul of Insurgency built on Unreal Engine 4. It will include a story mode, eSports integration and support, and will release on PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, and PS4 in 2017. Today we will be interviewing our creative director Andrew Spearin talking about what to expect from Sandstorm. I will be asking Andrew questions we’ve gathered from the community, and as always, we’ll do an open question and answer period in the end.

So come on out, watch, and be sure to give us your questions in the stream about Insurgency.
PC Gamer

Tactical shooter Insurgency is getting an expansion, a port, a remake or some combination of those options. Insurgency: Sandstorm, coming 2017, is bringing the team play and territorial control of the crowd-funded, Source Engine FPS to Unreal Engine 4.

Developer New World Interactive has partnered up with publisher Focus Home Interactive to upgrade just about everything. The most obvious improvements will be graphical, given that you really have to try to make something not look pretty in Unreal Engine 4. New World has provided a couple of comparison shots for reference:

Source Insurgency
Unreal Insurgency

A story mode will come along for the ride, following a squad from the 2003 invasion of Iraq through to the present. However, those accustomed to Insurgency's multiplayer will likely be more excited by the introduction of competitive matchmaking and "a new esports framework". What form either of these things will take is unclear, but we're promised that a beta of both systems will come to the original Insurgency for all to test.

That beta is undated as-yet, but New World will be taking your questions over Twitch on Saturday, February 27, 3pm EST.
