Shots Fired, Strikes Countered: Insurgency Out Now

By Nathan Grayson on January 22nd, 2014.

Well, at least the weather's nice.

Well, now-ish anyway. Today is JanuMonth TwentyTwomeral (or however we’re designating dates in these lawless, calendar-bereft times), and tactical multiplayer shooter Insurgency should be out any second now. Originally an award-winning Half-Life 2 mod, a full version has crept forth from the massive camo-tattooed womb that births all military FPSes. After an attempted infiltration of Kickstarter didn’t end so well, developer New World Interactive took the game to Steam Early Access, but now it’s finally graduated to the non-Early-Access portion of Steam, which I believe is populated by something like four or five games these days. Footage and detailsy info below.

Hands On With Insurgency

By Rich Stanton on October 25th, 2013.


The big question with any Insurgency – who’s it for? For ‘the people’, that nebulous concept underlying the promises of kings and tyrants? Against the foreign devil? Or is Insurgency for folk who find Counter-Strike too arcadey, ArmA too serious, and want something that’s a bit like Red Orchestra but is not Red Orchestra?

Heads Up: Insurgency Pre-Orders Terrorise Your Wallet

By Jim Rossignol on March 4th, 2013.


Dakka-dakka boom and all those noises. Team-based shooter Insurgency is back, Back, BACK! And the latest released is poised at the potential-filled moment of early-access via pre-orders. You might recall that the first version of this game was a Half-Life 2 mod that was ModDB’s mod of the year back in 2007, but it’s now a full commercial project, complete with four game modes, class-based happenings, and fancy 3D VOIP. It’s sort of reassuring to see these kinds of projects finding a long-term home, especially when small teams dedicate such huge amounts of time to them. Whether it will be a success? Well, that’s one news we’ll have to wait for.

First On RPS: Eight Minutes Of Insurgency 2

By John Walker on August 8th, 2012.

When Insurgency was first released in 2007, even RPS wasn’t around. A total conversion mod for Half-Life 2, it was co-created by Jeremy Blum, the man behind that even more famous mod, Red Orchestra. And now, five years on, his independent studio – New World Interactive – is creating a sequel, Insurgency 2. There’s some in-game footage in the game’s Kickstarter video, but tonight we can exclusively show you eight minutes of the game in action. It’s below.

Rise Up: Andrew Spearin on Insurgency’s victory

By Kieron Gillen on February 8th, 2008.

WAR!

Since Insurgency recently took the first place in the ModDB 2007 awards and we found ourselves bouncing e-mails with this total-conversion of Half-life 2′s Founder and now Senior Advisor, photojournalist Andrew Spearin. We figured it was an opportune time to talk about his feelings of the long route from its conception in 2002 to its triumph five years later. We talk about how how he was inspired when he was serving in the Canadian Army, comparing the games he played to the training he experienced, what’s actually interesting about the concept of realism, what it’d take for him to consider becoming a professional designer and – of course – the actual ModDB competition itself…
