Here is some great news from the dev team: the long wait is over and Beta 2 is approaching completion. Feature lock is 30th of September, and the patch will be available for download shortly afterwards, following appropriate testing. The development team is now giving the finishing touches to what is meant to be one of our biggest updates - a milestone that will hopefully give those who have been following our mod's progress some good reasons to be happy.
First of all, we'd like to thank you for providing feedback, for playing on the servers and contributing -one way or another- to the discussion, bug-tracking and overall testing of the game. Your suggestions have been very valuable and have given us a great source of information. Some of you have also been very useful as a shooting gallery, by the way, and your sacrifice hasn't been in vain: it helps the dev. team make better death animations. As long as you keep on dying, we'll keep working on the game so you can at least do it with style.
We are aware that there will always be something to work on, something to do better, and the development team appreciates your patience and constructive comments. After all, the game is for you to enjoy!
In the meantime, stay tuned, and if you want to help, the best you can do is to spread the word about Insurgency. You are what makes Insurgency possible! We have a nice weapons animation test video straight from the dev team and a couple of new weapon renders to show you some of what's being done right now. Check them out!
Again, thanks everyone for your patience, and rest assured: Insurgency is alive, and the new patch is going to make the overall experience much more enjoyable! One thing hasn't changed, though, you will still need to hit the ground after the patch, specially with the ironsights now driving bullets right where they should. You have reasons to be happy, but also reasons to be scared!
