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!
<b>Denver, Colorado – March 1, 2013</b> – New World Interactive announced today it is opening its doors to the gaming community with “Early Access” to play <b><i>INSURGENCY</i></b>, its tactical first-person shooter, currently in development. Through its “Early Access” program, NWI will make <b><i>INSURGENCY</i></b> available to the public today at 6 pm PST -- and livestream it to the world via Destructoid’s TwitchTV show Mashtactics, <a href="http://www.twitch.tv/destructoid">www.twitch.tv/destructoid</a> at 4 pm PST.
<b><i>INSURGENCY</i></b>’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 <b><i>INSURGENCY</i></b>, 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 <b><i>INSURGENCY</i></b> site at: <a href="http://www.playinsurgency.com">www.playinsurgency.com</a>.
<b><i>INSURGENCY</i></b> 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 <b><i>INSURGENCY</i></b> 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:
<ul><li>Intense 32-plus player online action with a focus on teamwork</li>
<li>Customizing the game’s arsenal to player’s preferred style</li>
<li>Choosing from three unique classes that affect movement on the battlefield</li>
<li>Highly immersive audio with 3D VOIP to coordinate with and track other players</li>
<li>Playing the most popular maps and game modes, and helping the development team prototype new ones</li></ul>
Starting this Friday, March 1, 2013 at 6pm PST New World Interactive is proud to announce the launch of “Early Access” for INSURGENCY. The game will be available for purchase at playinsurgency.com as a digital download for PC and Mac OS X.
