Q.What is Insurgency?
A. Insurgency ("INS") is a total conversion modification (multiplayer) for Half-Life 2, which runs on Valve's Source game engine.
Insurgency takes you across the modern battlefield, engaging in intense firefights and battles as a member of either a highly organized and equipped conventional force (US Marines), or as an unconventional fighter that uses a combination of firepower and bravery to take on their sometimes overwhelming opponent (Insurgents).
Intense realism will keep you alert as you and your team try accomplish the mission's objectives. Specified roles are included within each Squad that make up your team's Platoon. Command and control from a 4-soldier Fireteam, to an 8-soldier Squad, up to a 32-soldier Platoon. A unique point system ensures that online combat veterans will be rewarded for their leadership and tactical abilities so that they can rise through the ranks and command the platoon.
Grab one of the many weapons in the arsenal and join the fight using guerrilla tactics against the powerful enemy, fire RPGs at enemy infantry, or deploy your machine gun to take down entire platoons!
Q. Where can I download the mod?
A. Insurgency is available on Steam, Valve's online distribution system. If you already own a Source-based commercial game such as Half-Life 2 (or any of its episodes), Portal, Counter Strike: Source or Team Fortress 2 you will have Insurgency listed under your "My Games" list on your Steam client. You can install Insurgency from there and you the game will receive automatic updates as soon as they are available.
Q: Will Insurgency take advantage of HDR/Phong, etc?
Q. How much will Insurgency cost?
A. It's free! You just need to have another Source-based video game to be able to play.
Q. Where can I find more information about the mod?
A. Please visit Insmod.org for detailed information on all aspects of Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat.
Q. Where can I find support / other players?
A. Please visit our website at Insmod.org and our forums at Forums.insmod.net and be part of our active community! You can also visit the section dedicated to Insurgency at the Electronic Sports League site to find INS clans or other players.
Q. I would like to help, are you looking for anyone in particular?
A. We are always looking for talented level designers, coders or artists. Please see the Help Wanted section of our Moddb for details! If you need to get in touch, send an e-mail to: email@example.com
Let’s see Blade Symphony first. As you may know, the developers who made Dystopia has tried themselfs in other genres, like third person fighting. The mod version for source was so successful, podcast17 cast almost had a heart attack, and the tracking numbers on moddb has gone rogue. So the obvious plan was to:
1: Go Indie
2: Go Steam
The game is currently in „early access” stage, which is kind of a closed beta. You can buy the game, and get the current version, also it’s possible to send feedbacks to the devs and letting them make a game that pleases every player. The game features katanas, shurikens, and breakdancing ninjas…what the hell are you still waiting for?
Second game is called Insurgency. The guys have already set up an indie profile for it, but unfortunatly they have forgot to inform the mod lovers too, and send out some marketing message through the moddb news.
Insurgency was really successful among source mods. They have reached steamworks in a short time, and they still have populated servers, and I'm really proud of them to fuel the esport aspect of the mod too. However this game is awsome, I can only recommend it to real gamer. By real gamers, I mean that your Call of Duty Modern Warfare quickscoping and killstreak BS won’t save you here. The player has to really use tactics and watch those corners, cause the snipers gonna get you...oh they gonna get you.
Third contestant is Perfect Stride. This little mod combined all of the known pro movement styles, and added some 8bit oldschool magic into it. You had to get through a complicated map like in defrag back int he days. This wasn’t enough for the devs though, they had to add skateboards and drugs to it, and they come up with this finally:
Last one is my personal favourite. Some of you may remeber my earlier post about a mod called Naissance. I found the little mod accidently by browsing though Mavman’s site, and some month ago I’ve seen the same name on RockPaperShotgun. My feelings were right, the mod has gone indie too, and mavman already set up an indiedb profile for it, so if you love simplistic but beautiful puzzle fps games, this is what you want to track. No colors, no weapons, just shadows and lights which are playing mindtracks with you all the time.
Highest Rated (2 agree) 10/10
This Mod features a lot of great realism and custom made effects! I love it!
And the great modern warfare concept brings this game mod to the top of all HL2 mods! You cannot play this game for a minute, it simply is too fun, that you would not bother play it for a century!!
Cannot describe the whole map with words. You'll have to try it yourself!
