Dear community,

Today we are announcing the delay of Insurgency: Sandstorm from its originally planned release date on September 18th 2018 for Windows PC. The game will now be releasing for Windows PC on December 12th 2018, and the Pre-order Beta will continue until the release of the game.

This was one of the hardest decisions our team has ever had to make and not one taken lightly. However, we feel it is in the best interest of the game and our community to spend more time working to ensure we deliver the best possible experience.

During Pre-order Beta 2 thousands of players took to the game and gave us great feedback on dozens of topics. Our small, but highly dedicated team has been working around the clock to respond to and address as much feedback as possible; releasing two hotfixes over the first weekend and a significant patch last Thursday. We’ve already seen your positive feedback, as our team have started to address priority areas such as performance, hit registration, and player movement.

Despite the game’s improvement, we are acutely aware that not all of you are having the ideal experience we want to deliver. By extending the beta and moving our launch date to December, the additional time will allow us to make significant improvements to the game with continued input from you. The additional time allows us to target a lower minimum system requirement, address more bugs, work on overall polish, gather additional feedback from the community to refine gameplay, and ensure that highly requested community features which may otherwise have had to be added post launch (such as community servers and custom games) are ready for day 1.

The major goals we aim to achieve with this extra time are as follows:

  • Upgrade to Unreal Engine 4.20 and continue optimizing
  • Improve the character models, textures, and animations in the game
  • Improve the “scoped” experience for both high and low-quality scope settings
  • Improve the level visuals, gameplay and optimization
  • Add more cosmetic item variations and a new forearm tattoo cosmetic type which can also be seen in first person
  • Expand in-game server options to include a server browser, community-run server support, and a custom games system allowing users to specially configure games hosted by our server infrastructure.
  • Refine the game to the point it has far less bugs, glitches, visual inconsistencies and other issues.

We appreciate that these improvements may mean you have to wait a little longer; however we feel it is important that we deliver a game that lives up to your high expectations and that Sandstorm can be deemed a true successor to Insurgency. Those of you who have been supporting us during the Pre-order Beta tests will be able to continue playing until the release of the game, and we look forward to more of your feedback.

The pre-order discount will be extended until the new release date and we will continue to grant pre-purchasers instant access to the ongoing beta along with the 10% pre-order discount. The additional 10% loyalty discount for owners of the original Insurgency will continue to run until the end of March 2019.

We thank all of you for your passion and support, and look forward to continuing to test with you over the coming weeks ahead of our launch in December.

Sincerely,
New World Interactive

Welcome back to our devblog for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2! This week we will introduce you to the game’s backstory and explain what to expect from the three faction campaigns.

Working as tutorial as well as introduction, the prologue to Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 kicks off during the Gathering Storm storyline of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The great fortress world Cadia is under siege from Abaddon the Despoiler’s 13th Black Crusade: the Imperium buckles under the largest invasion it has ever seen as fleet after fleet of Chaos ships filled with foul daemons and irredeemable renegades flood from the Eye of Terror in search of death and destruction.

0_1539009903697_BFGA2_screenshot02.jpg

As the Imperium barely holds Cadia, it also finds a way to close the Eye of Terror, home of the largest concentration of Chaos forces. Abaddon, furious at this defiance, launches the Blackstone Fortress in a collision course with Cadia’s surface, piercing the planetary shields and tectonically destabilising the planet. Cadia falls despite the combined efforts of the Adeptus Mechanicus, Space Marines, and Imperial Navy, even with the help of some Necron allies. This is a tremendous blow from Abaddon’s forces.

Youtube Video

The story can go in three very different directions from here, depending on your choice of campaign.

For the Imperium, Admiral Spire returns from the Warp, translating back into real space hundreds of years after the Gothic War to discover his efforts to protect the Imperium were almost in vain. Arriving after the Battle of Cadia, his desire for retaliation is immense and he is ordered to take back control of the highly symbolic ruins of Cadia. Taking command of the Imperial Navy, Adeptus Mechanicus, and Space Marine forces, this campaign follows Spire as he safeguards the galaxy against Chaos and all lurking xeno races of the 41st Millenium.

In the Necron campaign, you play as Amarkun the Gatherer, right-hand of Kephrekh the Unbroken, one of the dynastic lords of the Necrons. You begin by awakening the great tomb planets of the Sentinel Worlds sector, but are quickly embroiled in wars against other races. With the 13th Black Crusade raging each Necron dynasty has its own schemes and you will discover how Trazyn the Infinite has his own suggestions for how Amarkun should assist Kephrekh.

Finally, as the Tyranids, the Great Devourer continues to hunger and finds its way to the Aegis Ocularis. All narrative elements come from how the other races respond to the ever-spreading Tyranid fleet and its never-satiated jaws. Devour every one of them until all of the galaxy is consumed, and help them to find a peaceful end in the belly of the Beast.

Hopefully that gives you a small taste of what to expect from our take on the future of the galaxy in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2. Which side will you bring to glory, and who are you most looking forward to ruining? Next time, we’ll go in-depth on how a game of Armada 2 is played.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 releases on Steam in January 2019. You can already pre-order for Beta Access before the release of the game, and a 10% discount!

Returning Battlefleet Gothic: Armada players on Steam instead benefit from a 25% loyalty discount on their preorder of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2.

Walk the path of madness in Call of Cthulhu’s latest gameplay trailer!

Youtube Video

Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame adaptation of Chaosium’s tabletop RPG, will release October 30 on PlayStation 4, XBOX One and PC. Today, we invite players to tread further down the path of madness in this new Gameplay Trailer, as the Darkwater investigation begins to spiral out of control in the midst of unsettling conspiracies, bizarre cults and even the Old Ones themselves.

In Private Investigator Edward Pierce's quest to unveil the truth, players will need to rely on a variety of upgradeable Skills to escape the clutches of madness and death. The Spot Hidden and Investigation skill paths let players uncover more clues and draw more meaningful conclusions, unlocking more topics to question in dialogues. Convincing the distrustful locals of Darkwater to reveal what they know will require proficiency in Eloquence and Psychology. Pierce's Strength skill may also come in handy for when brute force is necessary, or to intimidate impressionable people into offering whatever they’re hiding. Expertise in Medicine and Occultism, improved only through discovering unique books and artifacts throughout the investigation, may grant additional insight – but knowledge can be a curse in Call of Cthulhu. The more aware Pierce is made of the horrors that dwell beyond the fabrics of reality, the more he will fall to insanity, impeding his ability to draw logical conclusions.

Pierce is but a mortal man, with few allies in a remote, unfriendly environment. Whether outnumbered by mortal adversaries or facing foes whose mere existence is beyond human comprehension, offering physical resistance is usually not an option. Making the most of Pierce’s extensive set of skills, along with subterfuge and stealth, is paramount… though escaping the gaze of the Great Dreamer may ultimately prove futile.

Call of Cthulhu releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 30. Digital and retail preorders are available on PC and consoles.

Focus Home Interactive and Enodo Games partner for the release of The Architect: Paris

We are happy to announce our partnership for development of The Architect: Paris on PC. Offering a unique take on the City Builder genre, the game will ask you to become the Architect of the entire city of Paris. This doesn’t simply mean building a city from an assets catalogue – you will imagine, design, and create original buildings that they must manage individually. The Architect: Paris challenges you to carry out your vision of how the City of Light is developed, while responding to modern challenges such as design, demographics, politics, and pollution.

0_1538643981315_The_Architect_Paris_Logo.jpg

Jean-Baptiste Reynes, President and Creative Director of Enodo Games:

“The Architect: Paris is an out of the box, innovative game that aims to shake the foundations of the genre. We are convinced that Focus Home Interactive is the ideal publisher to help us develop and promote our game. We look forward to working with their teams and benefitting from their long-time experience and expertise”.

Luc Heninger, Production Director of Focus Home Interactive:

“We are delighted to partner with Enodo Games. With The Architect: Paris, they’re bringing a title that fits perfectly with the Focus Home Interactive catalog, as it goes far beyond the classical borders of its genre. We are always happy to work with ambitious partners developing innovative and fun concepts, and that’s exactly what Enodo Games is doing here.”
