Insurgency adds new maps for year's final update

Insurgency is getting its final  update for the year, so prepare for some new playgrounds.


It's been a fine year for New World Interactive's tactical shooter, Insurgency. The developer is now ready to officially put 2014 behind them with the year's final update, one that adds some new weapons and a few tweaks across several game modes.

The latest update will make a few improvements to Survival mode, while also adding three new maps: Sinjar, Verticality, and Heights. Other changes include the addition of the Colt 1911 pistol and M45 pistol, some revamped maps, and two additions to Hunt mode. Flashlights and laser sights are also available for sniper rifles and LMGs.

The full changelist can be found on the Steam Announcements page. Those looking to get into Insurgency can pick up the game from Steam this weekend for 55% off.

      I really dig Insurgency. It's still a bit rough around the edges, but the gameplay is solid, even if it has some graphics problems/deformities/invisible walls.

      I hope that they continue to update the game. Every patch makes it more fun and more solid.

      Is this game any good? How is it different from the million other shooters?

        minimal hud, ironsights/scope only, teamwork and communication are a must as teamwork is SUPER important, and it's very VERY lethal. none of this "empty full clip into guy, he knifes you and you die" bullshit.
