Once upon a time, New World Interactive was a small team of passionate modders dreaming of creating something special together. Thirteen years later, and golly, did we ever! Several critically acclaimed games later, we’re incredibly proud of what we have achieved so far.

None of this would have been possible without the support of our fantastic community and dedicated teams, past and present, and for that, we thank you. We are deeply grateful for your trust in us and the countless hours of fun and excitement we have shared together.

20 million mod.io downloads!

Flash forward to now; we continue to update Insurgency: Sandstorm (Operation: Accolade launched this month!), and we hit the incredible milestone of 20 million mod downloads on mod.io.

Can you believe it? From mod to modded.

Here’s an example of two unique maps created by our community: 


A picturesque cold, snowy map set in a valley in the mountains, Highlands, has 364k downloads. One side of the map is home to a scenic frozen lake, the other, a shanty town. Separating the spawns is a forest. This map has many game modes and supports day and night!


TORO has surpassed all others with over 820k downloads, making it the most downloaded user-created map to date. Players can enjoy many game modes as they explore this alluring town fighting through the streets and buildings. Supporting day and night modes, Toro is a must-try!

Download these maps and more at the dedicated Insurgency: Sandstorm page on mod.io.

Looking Forward

Thank you for being a part of our journey so far; we can’t wait to see what the future holds, so here’s to many more amazing years with New World Interactive!
