In a press release sent to Gaming Cypher today, developer New World Interactive announced that the new Insurgency free Nightfall DLC is now live and released a new trailer.
Halloween-Inspired Content Update Features New Survival Game Mode, Night Maps, Party System, Weapons,
and Much More
Denver, CO — October 30, 2014 — New World Interactive (NWI) is excited to announce that the latest free content update for INSURGENCY, called Nightfall, is now available on Steam. As the name suggests, the DLC focuses on night-time operations, featuring night themed content such as night-vision goggles and flare guns, as well as an exciting new cooperative game mode called Survival.
In this new mode, players must move from safehouse-to-safehouse with their friends in an effort to slowly gain supplies and survive an endless onslaught. Players use stealth to evade their enemies or directly engage in tense firefights to survive, creating an open-ended, sometimes frightening experience.
“This new content update is our most significant one to date,” explains Jeremy Blum, Founder and Game Director at New World Interactive. “Night warfare is intense and sometimes scary in Insurgency. The Survival game mode has proven to be a great addition to the game, catering to players interested in a compelling cooperative experience that focuses on scavenging and evasion rather than progressing linearly through a map.”
A new map has been added to the game – Verticality. The map features both day and night versions and can be played on a wide variety of INSURGENCY’s game modes.
The new party system is also in its first stage of implementation. Players can now form a lobby and all join a server together. The system will be further expanded upon in the coming months, and will eventually include a competitive matchmaking system where one party can face off against another.
INSURGENCY Nightfall key features include:
- New night operation maps
- New cooperative game mode: Survival
- New Map – Verticality
- Initial implementation of new Party system
- Nightvision goggles and flare guns
- New weapons: M4A1 and AK-74
- Multiple grenade slots
- Weapon attachments affecting weapon length and weapon weight
- Grenade launchers for M4A1 and AK-74
Take a look at the new trailer below:
Built on Valve’s Source Engine, INSURGENCY supports up to 32-person multiplayer and six-player cooperative, and showcases a training level as well as offline practice against AI. The game is built for Windows PC and Mac OS X. More on INSURGENCY can be found on New World Interactive’s Website. “Like” the game on Facebook, follow on Twitter, and watch it on Twitch.
