Insurgency - Jonny-Higgins


Hi everyone, my name is Jon Higgins, Marketing & Communications Director at New World Interactive. Today’s community update is going to be slightly different from our usual development oriented blogs and instead focus more on some of the things that have been going on behind the scenes here at New World. We hope you enjoy this peek behind the curtain and brief company update.

As some of you may have read a while back we announced we would be creating a new studio called New World North in Calgary, Canada. After a few small delays we are now set up and slowly migrating staff from around the world to the city, which is quickly becoming Canada's newest game development hub.

Our new location in Calgary enables us to pursue our longer term company vision of having a sustainable, enjoyable, ‘best-in-class’ work environment for our team. It represents our new home as we look to centralize a formerly distributed team and grow with more experienced talent. These changes will allow us to continue pursuing our goal of creating critically-acclaimed, cutting edge and highly successful video game experiences.



Founder & CEO Jeremy Blum at the New World North Office.


There is still a fair bit of work to be done on the new office, however it is a significant upgrade from our old space in Amsterdam, and provides a lot more flexibility for our company to grow.


Our old space in Amsterdam, packed down ft. character artist Gabriel Fronza.




In addition to our new space we are also welcoming a few new faces to our team and hiring for several new positions. Recently we announced the hiring of former BioWare Lead Artist Michael Grills who joins us as our new Art Director, as well as ex-Tencent, Ubisoft, and Epic employee Derek Czerkaski who will be joining us as our new Head of Production.

“Derek is an extraordinary talent in the gaming industry. We are delighted to add him to our team and confident he will help New World continue building our best-in-class studio.” - Keith Warner, President

Some of you may have picked up on a quote from our recent press release regarding the hiring of ex BioWare artist Michael Grills:

“We’re taking on a new, unannounced project which requires stronger artistic vision and leadership than games we’ve worked on in the past. Michael is a great fit for what we have in mind, bringing lots of creativity, industry experience and strong leadership to the table. We’re looking forward to having him on board and are very excited to see what he’s able to help us accomplish in the future for this project and beyond.” – Jeremy Blum, Founder & CEO

While our development team currently remains focused on post-release support and the console version of Insurgency: Sandstorm, we are also laying the foundation for exciting new projects. Insurgency: Sandstorm’s success has allowed the company to not only continue to support the game, but also expand and explore new frontiers.



A while back Nick Calandra and Omar Ahmed from Gameumentary visited our offices in Amsterdam and Denver to tell the story behind the formation of New World Interactive and our journey from enthusiast modders to award-winning indie developers.

Initially planned as a one off, the documentary crew captured so much footage with our team that it will now be premiering as a three-part story over on the Escapist YouTube channel and website later in the summer.

Our team have just seen a first draft of the episodes and we feel it will give a very stripped back and raw look at everything from the ups and downs of starting an independent video game company in 2010 all the way up to Insurgency: Sandstorm’s release. From our failed kickstarter and almost going bankrupt, to making our first million, the series touches on all aspects of our company, including an exclusive look at an unreleased game concept that, while discontinued, also laid the foundation for Insurgency: Sandstorm

We’ll be returning to more developer focused community updates, including a preview of our upcoming snow map. However if you want more frequent updates be sure to follow us on social media @InsurgencyGame on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or join the /r/Insurgency subreddit. Below is some of the content we have teased over on these channels.

Pre-Order Beta 2, which is now live, features two new maps compared to the first Beta, for a total of four maps and four modes, including offline coop, from the final version of the game, character customization, dozens of weapons, and hundreds of loadout options (including explosives, armour, and ammo carriers).

Thanks to all the positive feedback Insurgency: Sandstorm received during the first Pre-order Beta earlier this month, the team will be using your feedback to continue to polish and optimize the game up until launch and beyond. We are now happy to let players experience the the intensity of modern combat in this Pre-order Beta phase.

Beta 2 is still a development build of the game and an on-going work in progress. We use betas as an important tool for gathering player feedback, studying system performance, and balancing the game. As such, it is important to stress that this is not a representation of the release version of Insurgency: Sandstorm.

As you can see in the Pre-Order Beta 2 changelog, the team has worked hard on this new version, but you may encounter, bugs, balance and/or performance issues. We encourage all participants to use the and forums to report any issues so that our team can continue working on them for the release.

Before playing, please check out:
Join us to celebrate the Beta 2 launch with a Dev Q&A and giveaway at 18h00 (CEST) on www.twitch.tv/focushomeinteractive



There are no NDAs or streaming restrictions on this test, and we're greatly looking forward to getting feedback from all across the gaming community as we work on the launch build. Pre-Order Beta 2 will stay open until the release of the game, September 18th.

Insurgency: Sandstorm releases on Windows PC in September 18, with Linux and Mac support coming later, and on PS4 and Xbox One in 2019.

Insurgency - New World


Insurgency: Sandstorm is a reborn, improved, and expanded sequel to indie multiplayer FPS hit Insurgency, coming September 18 to PC and 2019 to consoles.

Thanks to all the positive feedback the game received during the first Pre-order Beta last month. The team will be using your feedback to continue to polish and optimize the game up until launch and beyond.

We are now happy to announce Pre-order Beta Test 2 beginning next week. Meanwhile, experience the intensity of modern combat and check out the positive reception from journalists and players during the previous Pre-order Beta with the Gamescom Trailer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWzGzNpM66w
From August 30 through September 18, players who have pre-ordered Insurgency: Sandstorm on Steam will receive exclusive access to Pre-order Beta 2. The team will be focusing their work during Beta 2 on bug fixing and server stability.

The studio will also start working on the extensive post-launch support plan with new content coming after the release of the game. As Pre-order Beta 2 will have no NDA and no streaming restrictions, those curious are invited to watch live gameplay on Twitch, YouTube, Mixer, and Facebook throughout up until the release of the game.



Eager players can pre-order on Steam now for a 10% discount, reducing the price to €26.99 / £23.39 / $26.99. An additional 10% loyalty discount will be given to fans that own the original Insurgency, bringing the pre-order price down to just $24.99. This additional discount will be offered until the end of 2018, and all pre-orders will receive instant access to any ongoing beta tests as well as future ones.

Insurgency: Sandstorm releases on Windows PC in September 18, with Linux and Mac support coming later, and on PS4 and Xbox One in 2019. Pre-order now on Steam to get bonuses, including exclusive access to the Pre-order Beta.

Insurgency

Developer New World Interactive's hardcore multiplayer tactical shooter Insurgency is currently free on Steam - and if you pick it up now, it'll remain in your library to play whenever you want.

Insurgency, if you're unfamiliar, originally released for PC in 2014 and was the fully fledged standalone successor to New World Interactive's popular Half-Life 2 mod Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat. The series gained quite a following (and still has an active player base today), thanks its more realistic take on the classic first-person shooter formula.

In Insurgency, for instance, head shots are instantly fatal, and you don't have access to a mini-map, on-screen crosshairs, even an ammo or health counter - all of which makes for an experience that rewards tactical planning and carefully orchestrated team work.
