During the last few days, Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat is enjoying a massive boost of players thanks to the release over Steam. This system also allows us to deploy some extra content and updates on a more regular basis and we would like to give you a small taste of what we are working on right now - this way you will know what is going to be added to the game in the near future.
First of all, and following the massive amounts of feedback received over the last months, a lot of our maps are being updated with fixes for small exploits or rough edges. The same goes for our main code base: a substantial patch is well under way and ready to be tested prior to committing the updates to the Steam version of Insurgency.
One of the new maps that are currently under development is Ins_Karam. Karam is a map set in Afghanistan. The Insurgents will be on the offensive against an ISAF camp. This is a great looking level, framed by pronounced ridges and hills, crossed by a dried-up river that provides cover and can conceal troop movements. There are also two villages protected by walls. The ISAF camp is located on a hill that overlooks one of the villages, and it's reinforced by concrete bunkers and ditches with sandbags. Ins_Karam, created by Bluestrike, has seen great progress over the last few months and it's getting ready to be tested and finally deployed to all of you so that you can enjoy it directly from the Steam version of Insurgency.

We would like also to mention the fact that the ESL Gather System now supports Insurgency. This is great news for players looking for something more than public server gameplay but that don't have a clan or a regular group of friends to play with:
The ESL Gather system is also supporting Insurgency now. You are able to find friends and like-minded people to play with. It is not focused on the competition but more on the fun and social part of gaming. It is a system with which you can find other players with whom you can play, no matter if you've got a team, no team or half a team. No matter if you are looking for a friendly match, a practice match, a 1on1 or a mixed team match.
You can check out all the information about the ESL Gather System system here. We would like to thank the ESL for their support of Insurgency and would also like to invite all of you to check out the Insurgency section of their website. You will find there information about the latest INS competitions and events, match results, and plenty of other interesting stuff!
