INSURGENCY GOES ON SALE WITH MASSIVE GAMEPLAY UPDATES AND IMPROVEMENTS

Get Into the Fight With INSURGENCY Now On Steam’s Autumn Sale at $9.99

Denver, CO — November 27, 2013 — New World Interactive (NWI) revealed today a slew of new updates to its upcoming, intensely gritty, first-person shooter INSURGENCY . The update features new weapons and coop missions, as well as many new gameplay improvements. Gamers can enjoy this thrilling, indie first-person shooter on sale this week as part of Steam’s Autumn Sale for $9.99 starting today, November 27, until Tuesday, December 3.

“There are some nice additions to the game that have recently gone in,” says Jeremy Blum, Founder and Game Director at New World Interactive. “Personally I am most excited about the new recoil systems we implemented which add vibration and inertia to the weapons. The result is a much more rewarding sensation when operating weaponry in the game. In addition to this, we have made strides to improve our game economy and the way our supply system works, adding an element of asymmetry by providing Security and Insurgent forces with unique advantages. For example, Security’s game economy is more geared around armor and precision while the Insurgent economy is geared around quickness and firepower. The tradeoff makes playing each team a unique experience, and emphasizes the qualities that make these factions distinct while still providing a balanced gameplay experience.”

New World Interactive has recently updated the INSURGENCY website ( http://www.playinsurgency.com) to contain updated information about the game’s features and thorough explanation how each of the modes work. The main unique multiplayer game mode that INSURGENCY boasts is in its Skirmish mode, which is near-final in this most recent update and described as follows: five objectives can be secured to prolong a team’s survival and each objective secured provides the team with additional reinforcements.  Skirmish matches often become an epic tug of war, as both teams struggle to gain control of the map. The balance of momentum easily shifts based upon a team’s strategy, where a crucial flanking maneuver can lead your team to a team's swift victory.

In addition to the Skirmish mode described above, INSURGENCY offers other unique multiplayer and cooperative modes for differing play styles. One of the most popular modes in the game is VIP Escort, where one team must escort a high value player-controlled target to an extraction point while the other must ambush and eliminate this target. There are also two Search & Destroy based game modes for those interested in sabotage-type objectives and some greatly improved cooperative missions for a less competitive environment with some friends against challenging AI.

INSURGENCY supports up to 32-plus players for Windows®PC, Mac OS X (and later Linux), using Valve’s Source Engine and is distributed through the Steam platform. Take to the streets for intense close-quarters combat, where a team’s survival depends on securing crucial strongholds and destroying enemy supply. The follow-up game to the award-winning Source Mod, INSURGENCY is highly competitive and unforgivingly lethal, striking a balance between one-life gameplay and prolonged action.
