Insurgency while in Early Access, Gets New Modes and Maps


After the successful launch of its groundbreaking “Early Access” campaign, giving gamers a chance to be part of the development process with INSURGENCY, New World Interactive announced today new updates and screenshots illuminating the team’s progress tailoring its tactical first-person shooter to its fan base.

Following up with community feedback, new additions include:

  • Realism Mode: Players can filter the server browser to find matches with Realism mode, enabling gameplay settings that include friendly fire and exclude death messages and the killcam.
  • Co-operative Mode: Player-controlled security forces can hunt for AI insurgents in specially designed maps.
  • Expanded Maps: By popular demand, “Heights” is being experimented with to create a more expansive environment. Players will also see a new night version of the Siege map named “Contact.”

INSURGENCY is a first-person team-based shooter for up to 32-plus players designed for Windows® PC and Mac OS X (and later on Linux), using Valve’s Source Engine and distributed through the Steam platform. If the name INSURGENCY sounds familiar, that’s because it’s based on the popular total conversion for Half-Life 2 — Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat –that saw more than a million free downloads and was awarded the ModDB “Player’s Choice Mod of the Year” in 2007.
