Insurgency ushers in 'Molotov Spring' update in late March

Insurgency's first major content update, Molotov Spring, will debut two new maps, new game modes, new weapons and attachments, and improved co-op play later in March. For an idea of what to expect, New World Interactive has released a 15-minute video showing off some of the improved co-op on the re-designed Buhriz map.

New World Interactive is preparing to release the first major content update for its squad-based tactical FPS, Insurgency. Titled 'Molotov Spring,'the free update will add two new maps, new game modes, additional weapons and attachments, and improved co-op play.

Co-op teams will encounter a noticeable AI improvement, with bots now able to toss grenades and RPGs at incoming players. New maps will also be designed to feel larger. To that end, NWI has remade the Buhriz map to add wider spaces and additional buildings.

More information on the Buhriz re-design can be found on Insurgency's Steam Community page. You can also check out a tense 15-minute playthrough below, showing just how much more sophisticated the enemy AI has become. NWI is aiming to release the Molotov Spring update at the end of March, while Steam is offering the game for 33% off for the rest of this week.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Love this game. It's a great change of pace after Battlefield and Titanfall, and a steal at $15. Buy it, you assholes.

        The learning cuve is so high on the game. Also, people that play this game are generally stuck-up little assholes. If you mess up or make a mistake they ream you.

          Why is the learning curve so high? Sure, you die very quickly, but the basics from any military fps apply (and are rewarded): stay in cover, stick with your team, fire in bursts, and take your time. And I haven't found the community to be critical in the 20 hours I've spent with it, at least, no more so than in any other game. You make it sound like League of Legends or something and it's really not that bad.

          I haven't experienced this, but people do bitch if you're the last dude alive and aren't even trying to achieve one of the game's objectives while the timer runs out.

          If you're the last dude alive when the goal is to blow up a weapon cache or capture a control point and you're just chilling in a sniper nest, then you haven't bothered to learn how to play the game.
