Insurgency – Squad-Based Tactical FPS – Is Now Available

New World Interactive announced the launch of its tactical, team-based first-person shooter INSURGENCY available on Steam. The intense online FPS, that PC Gamer calls “a ridiculously good time,” aims to distill one of the most popular gaming genres to its essence. INSURGENCY is available now for PC and Mac OS X, now at the sale price of $13.49 for a limited time from today, January 22, until Tuesday, January 28, a 10% discount from the SRP of $14.99.

Jeremy Blum, founder and game director of New World Interactive, said:

“We’re very excited about the progress we’ve made over the past nine months. Early Access allowed us to build a community and actualize the full potential of our game, that otherwise would not be possible to reach this moment. We are very grateful for our dedicated fans that have remained loyal through this process.”

Andrew Spearin, designer and community manager of Insurgency and the co-founder of Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat, added:

“This milestone release marks the end of the Early Access phase, since we have discovered the right direction and created a foundation for the game from months of experimentation, years of experience, and a decade envisioning what this gameplay experience should be. Today, we look forward to unveiling what we have to the world, allowing more players to join our rapidly growing community and help evolve the game as we polish, refine, and build on top of the framework we have established.”

Here are the key features of INSURGENCY:
