Perhaps some of you remember the Insurgency mod for HL2? For about two years now, a team of very talented developers (and myself) at New World Interactive have been working on recreating and reinventing Insurgency from a gameplay-first angle, trying to make an indie FPS that is competitive yet fun as well!

Last Friday, we released an 'Early Access' promotion for Insurgency, which allows you to get early access to the game and all future content updates for $19.99 - if you're interested, the game looks up your alley, or you are just passionate about supporting independent game development that's evolved from mods - we'd really appreciate your support!

You can get more information at Our website including some screenshots, feature and purchasing information. The whole point of the 'Early Access' system is to allow players to get into the game early (right now this would be considered an 'alpha' build) and to not only see how the development process changes and shapes the project into something more polished, but more importantly, it gives players the chance to provide their insight and feedback so that we may tailor and modify the game to the community's desires.

If this sounds interesting to you, please check out the link above! I will be happy to reply to any PMs or questions about the project, as well!

I thought people weren't allowed to charge money for mods.

It isn't considered a mod because they are licensing the source engine.

So, assuming I haven't heard of Insurgency (which I haven't), what makes this different from every other game of its kind?

I really, really enjoyed the mod. Found it a unique middle-ground between brutally realistic and still accessible to the average gamer who might not enjoy such realism. After all, how many times do we repeat that "real life is not fun" when people make complaints about game mechanics not being "realistic"?

This is good news, had no idea you were involved in this. Cool stuff bro!

Thanks Daubster, and Blitzkrieg!

Grim is correct; we are licensing Source for this project (it runs on the same engine as CS:GO and takes advantage of their new lighting/shadowing system) - the original Insurgency mod is still available on Steam to play for free (although at this point it is basically unsupported and unaffiliated.)

In response to your question, Scotch: It blends the basic proven FPS mechanics of every game of it's kind with more 'realism' options without being too over the top - there are controls for leaning and stance changes but they don't impair your ability to fight, there are no vehicles, or environments that take several hours to traverse. The focus is on the cooperative infantry combat. Extra attention has been paid to the gunplay, weapon handling, damage balancing etc to make players who demand 'realism' comfortable without excluding those who don't want a really 'hardcore' experience (although there are options for that as well.) We're also a very small, independent development team that is committed to supporting our community by releasing frequent content updates and patches to address their requests!

Shame it's multiplayer. Or, rather, shame for me, as I can't play multiplayer at this point in time. Insurgency 2 always looked like something I wanted to pick up, and at that price it's a steal.
Well, good luck finishing it! (not that you need it, from the look of things) hopefully you'll be receiving a chunk of my money some time in the future!
