Insurgency Team wishes you happy holidays! To celebrate the festive season we have released an exclusive render of the new Beta 3 USMC character model, as well as some additional goodies, so don't miss out!

Posted by Dr_Spielmann on Dec 21st, 2008

Hello Everyone!

The holidays are here and we all have a bit more time to enjoy playing games, be with our loved ones and catch up on a lot of things... so why not on Insurgency Beta 3?

We haven't brought you news about it for quite a while, so it's time to show you something: one of our new character models. We're currently in the process of creating 4 totally new character models for each team. They are being created with customization in mind, so that they can use a variety of accessories. The team of artists behind this task are CrazyMatt and Guntharf, from SkyMonkey Studios.

We are sure that you will be as happy as we are with the results of their work - so we have decided to release a special Insurgency Beta 3 USMC Model Desktop Background and some additional renders. To complete the holiday's media release, we have also included a short video showcasing some of the improved and new player sounds for 2.x (released with the previous update) and a preliminary image of the new SKS model (by Pete). The behavior of this weapon is also being redone for Beta 3.

We would also like to congratulate some of our developers for their recent appointments: 2DChris, Minotauro, Moroes and Bluestrike have all been hired by different videogame studios and will now start (or develop further) their careers in the industry. INS has been blessed with their great talent and we are extremely happy for their success. Join us in wishing them the best of luck in their future endeavors!

I don't like the new character model, sure it's better than the old ones but he still has no personality and comes off generic.

Look at these guys for example, they're so simple and yet each one has their own quality to attract you to the game. The guy in the middle has a fantastic manly face that if was one of the character models in this game would play because of that.

With CS theres 4 very different models to attract people but with this game you can't esactly do that because it wouldn't be realistic. So you have to base everything on the face...... this guys face just has no quality to it.

There will actually be lots of customization features applied including different faces to choose from :) this is just one of those faces, not to mention we decided to render it with the sunglasses on instead of off to show customization.

There's customization in-game. Not to mention the picture you showed was an artist drawing for the case of an RTS game. Those faces don't need to be animated, rigged, and put into a moving 3D game. And in Company of Heroes, each model looks exactly the same between the classes of units.
