Insurgency - New World

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!:
