Insurgency Documentary – The Mod That Started It All


Escapist and Gameumentary are proud to present the first episode from our Insurgency documentary series.

In episode 1 we dive into the beginnings of the Insurgency mod and New World Interactive, as a team of modders come together to try and finish their very first project as amateur hobbyists. The second episode of our Insurgency documentary series will air on Monday, Sept. 9 and cover the development of New World Interactive’s World War II FPS, Day of Infamy, and a project they’ve never spoken about before, called Exiles.

Hope you enjoy the documentary, and stay tuned for updates on new projects very soon!
