Dusty tactical FPS Insurgency is free to keep for the next two days

While I'll never be fully comfortable playing games set in the contemporary forever-war continually in the background of modern life, I must admit that Insurgency is a solid little shooter. Originally based on the Source mod of the same name, it offers realistic class-based tactical manshootery both competitive and co-op. For the next two days, it's free to grab in order to promote its upcoming…

Insurgency: Sandstorm looks genero but goodo

For a long time while watching this Insurgency: Sandstorm trailer, I thought its great innovation was to do with context dependent AI barks that swear at guns a lot. Then I thought I must be listening to actors pretending to be players in that cringingly E3 demo sorta way. Then I realised that devs New World Interactive were attempting to sidestep that by paying actors…

Insurgency: Sandstorm to launch on PC this September

Despite having to drop its exciting-sounding solo campaign, upcoming competitive FPS Insurgency: Sandstorm remains firmly on our radar for its uncompromising, brutal and tactile depiction of modern urban combat. Today, developers New World Interactive outlined their launch plans in an extensive development blog post, although the part you're all wondering is the release date, right? Despite not having a specific day picked out, the game…

Day of Infamy calls for backup with free weekend

EXT. OMAHA BEACH, JUNE 6 1944 There’s blood on the beach. Artillery shells launch explosive geysers of sand and salt water into the air. Soldiers storm the shoreline, throwing themselves at the enemy. A harried CAPTAIN runs through the chaos and throws himself into a blackened crater. CAPTAIN: Radio! RADIO! Where the hell is my god damned radio!? An eager soldier appears at the crest…

Insurgency: Sandstorm is a harrowing depiction of combat

This is what it must feel like to enjoy Battlefield or Call of Duty. I've tried many multiplayer military shooters over the years but I've never thought of one as more than a passing distraction until now. Insurgency: Sandstorm is more than a distraction. It's one of the most harrowing and thrilling depictions of combat I've ever seen, and I think it's a goddamn work…

Insurgency: Sandstorm dropping story campaign, for now at least

The singleplayer and cooperative story campaign planned for Insurgency: Sandstorm, the sequel to 2014's mod-turned-standalone Insurgency, might not actually happen. Developers New World Interactive announced last night that the campaign is "cancelled for release" so they can focus on the multiplayer that the series is known for, then the story "will be considered again at a later date." Which sounds like we probably won't get…

Day of Infamy gets one of those free weekends on Oct 12

The team-based world war II shooter Day of Infamy [official site] is seeking to dig some trenches in your Steam account with a free weekend from October 12-16 .

Day of Infamy adds two free maps, including Dunkirk

You might have heard that a little film called Dunkirk has just come out. The folk at New World Interactive certainly have: they've updated their hardcore WW2 shooter Day of Infamy [official site] with two new maps, one of which is – you guessed it – the beaches of Dunkirk. The Dunkirk map fights from the fields, through the streets, and to the beach. The other new…

It's a…

Bonza! Day of Infamy adds Black Panthers and Aussies

Yeah yeah, Call of Duty is returning to World War 2 but Day of Infamy [official site] is already there. Now developers New World Interactive (you might know 'em for Insurgency) have invited more people to the war, launching a free update adding soldiers including Scotland's Black Watch, the African-American Black Panthers tank battalion, and those rowdy Australians. Yesterday's update also brought one new maps,…

Day of Infamy shoots its way out of early access

“Infamy! Infamy! They’ve all got it infamy!” is one of the best jokes of all time. It is also what I screamed as I was repeatedly gunned down in World War II shooter Day of Infamy [official site] while playing the early access version. Fans of murdering me from afar with a scoped rifle will rejoice that the game has just now busted out into…

Day of Infamy launching properly this month

Day of Infamy [official site], their World War 2 spin-off from modern-day semi-serious FPS Insurgency, will leave early access and officially launch on March 23rd. That's the word this week from developers New World Interactive. Our Brendan Prematurely Evaluated Day of Infamy in August 2016 and had a gay old time capturing points, shooting faces, relaying messages by radio, and, accidentally calling artillery barrages down…

Premature Evaluation: Day of Infamy

Every Monday, Brendan heads to the frontlines of early access and writes about his heroic battles there. This week, he repeatedly fires upon his own team in multiplayer shooter Day of Infamy. In an age of Overwatches and hyper-CoDs it’s easy to forget that every first-person shooter was once set inside a single trench of World War II. Returning to this battlefield might seem like…

Insurgency Early Access Impressions: What’s It Like Now?

Insurgency is a lot of fun. Following Rich’s great exploratory feature on the highly tactical game last year, I took a look at it for the first time this week and tried to find out more about it, where it’s going and how a year’s further development has shaped it. At its core, Insurgency is a tactical shooter, one that sits between the hardcore realistic…

Into The Night: Insurgency Adding Dark, Dark Co-op

Darkness in multiplayer shooters is a tricky one. In theory, it demands new ways of moving, more attention and more caution, but opens up new tactics and opportunities. In practice, people bump their brightness high enough to make the darkness pointless so you do it too because they're essentially playing a different, easier game and then it's all just pointless and everyone's looking at an…

Shots Fired, Strikes Countered: Insurgency Out Now

Well, now-ish anyway. Today is JanuMonth TwentyTwomeral (or however we're designating dates in these lawless, calendar-bereft times), and tactical multiplayer shooter Insurgency should be out any second now. Originally an award-winning Half-Life 2 mod, a full version has crept forth from the massive camo-tattooed womb that births all military FPSes. After an attempted infiltration of Kickstarter didn't end so well, developer New World Interactive took the…
