New World Interactive has announced that after a nine-month early access campaign on Steam, squad-based shooter Insurgency will officially launch January 22.
“We’ve gained tremendous feedback from our community during early access, and in the process have grown accustomed to providing frequent updates to the game based on user experience,” said Jeremy Blum, founder and game director of New World Interactive.
Built on Valve’s Source Engine, Insurgency supports up to 32-person multiplayer and 6-player cooperative. The game is built for Windows PC and Mac OS X and currently is in development for Linux. New World Interactive is promising future updates and DLC for the game to help polish the overall experience.
“Insurgency is an evolution from the original mod experience, to finish what we started,” said designer Andrew Spearin, who co-founded Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat. “We have created an experience gamers can’t find with any other game. It’s a gritty representation of contemporary conflict, where every life and bullet counts. To win, the difference factor typically comes down to the team with the most communication and superior tactics, not just who has the twitchiest mouse.”
