Shots Fired, Strikes Countered: Insurgency Out Now

Half-Life 2 mod gets a (second) life

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.

Insurgency is quite well-loved in certain circles, though Rich recently found that this remake still shows its original game's age in places. That said, he also praised the "feel" of its weaponry until he was blue in the face. He never changed back either, so now we call him Rich "Papa Smurf" Stanton, a nickname which he despises despite the wildly successful rap career it's given him.

Oh right, Insurgency. It has a bevy of multiplayer modes and support for up to 32 players, which often leads to skirmishes equal parts tense and chaotic. There's also six-player co-op for those who cannot bear to hurl hurtful trash talk (and also bullets) at their fellow man.

You can procure it on Steam for $19.99. Who plans on enlisting?
