Insurgency gets Day of Infamy, a WWII-themed mod
Day of Infamy is an open-ended World War II experience founded by New World Interactive and expanded upon by the Insurgency modding community. Taking the fantastic FPS platform of Insurgency, and using it to build on the massive global setting of World War II; Day of Infamy is set to bring back the amphitheatre of war through the community.
This Sunday beginning at 12 p.m. PST / 3 p.m. EST, watch the reveal of the western front as Day of Infamy debuts on the New World Interactive Twitch stream at http://www.twitch.tv/
Day of Infamy opens up Insurgency to the modding community in a way that is incredibly exciting to New World Interactive team. “Not only is Insurgency a great platform for a gritty WWII game, but with such a vast global setting where so many factions and locations may be represented, it is the ideal platform for a community-created game,” said Jeremy Blum, Founder and Game Director at New World Interactive. “Modders can create the factions and environments they wish to play in, and NWI will help ensure their work is integrated and accessible to the public.”
The manifestation of Day of Infamy is up to players as the project will be a collaborative effort. With such a wide-scale story to tell, Day of Infamy will offer the tools of Insurgency as a creative canvas to see historical vignettes recreated in map form, troops from all nations present, and modes designed to highlight the struggle of war.
