We will be using the Insurgency Twitch channel here for the time being. We will be happy to answer any of your questions you have about the future of New World’s games.

“This game has me hooked and I see it as a proudly raised middle finger in the face of large developers who seem to completely ignore fairness and player equality in favour of potential income.”
9.0 – Hooked Gamers

“Insurgency is going to win fans for its gameplay. The action is highly competitive and focused. It brings me about as close to a real gunfight as I’ll likely ever want to get.”
75 – GamesBeat

“Insurgency is a well paced tactical shooter that's just a couple of big fixes away from competing with Counter-Strike.”

About This Game

Take to the streets for intense close quarters combat, where a team's survival depends upon securing crucial strongholds and destroying enemy supply in this multiplayer and cooperative Source Engine based experience. The follow-up game to the award-winning Source mod, Insurgency is highly competitive and unforgivingly lethal, striking a balance between one-life gameplay and prolonged action.


  • Over 40 weapons with numerous attachments, no crosshair, and a focus on realistic weapon behavior including a free-aim system and intense suppression effects.
  • 16 maps playable in day and night versions on various multiplayer and cooperative modes, ranging from environments in the Middle East, Africa, and Central Asia.
  • 7 multiplayer game modes supporting up to 32 players, with a focus on territorial control, destroying weapon caches and escorting high value targets.
  • 5 cooperative game modes where you and your friends team up to complete mission-based objectives.
  • Free content updates that include weapons, game modes, maps, and new features.
  • Offline practice mode, playing with bots on all game modes.
  • Squad system built upon role-based player classes, which are customizable and asymmetrical based on what team you are on.

  • Accumulate supply to customize and upgrade your gear, affecting your weight, stamina, and movement speed.
  • Simplified HUD and UI for a clean, immersive user experience focused on the action and environments.

  • Playable on PC, Mac OSX, and Linux with multiplayer cross-compatibility.
  • Dedicated Server Support for PC and Linux.

Multiplayer Game Modes:

Push --- Three territorial objectives must be captured by the attacking team in sequential order. For each objective captured, they gain more reinforcement and time to attack the next. Defenders have a finite amount of reinforcements and must use each wisely. Once the third objective is captured by the attackers, a fourth cache objective must be destroyed, while the defenders have only one life to make a last stand.

Firefight --- Three territorial objectives, one for each team, plus one neutral. Each team only respawns when they secure an objective. Secure all objectives or eliminate all enemy to win. Every life counts, making this a very suspenseful experience dependent upon teamwork.

Skirmish --- In addition to three territorial objectives, each team has a supply cache to protect. Teams gain extra reinforcement waves until their cache is destroyed. When both teams have lost their caches and all reinforcement waves, it becomes a Firefight match.

Occupy --- There is one central territorial objective in the area. The team that controls it does not deplete reinforcement waves. This gameplay in this mode is reminiscent to King of the Hill or "tug of war".

Ambush --- A high value target ("HVT") must be escorted to an extraction point. It's one team's goal to make this happen and it's the other team's goal to stop this from happening at all costs. The HVT is only armed with a silenced pistol, but can pick up a weapon from a fallen enemy or teammate.

Strike --- Three weapon caches must be destroyed by the attacking team to achieve victory. Destroying a cache earns the attackers more reinforcements and time on the clock. The defenders must retain at least one cache from being destroyed and eliminate the enemy team once their reinforcements run dry.

Infiltrate --- The standard Capture the Flag mode, but with a twist. Your team's goal is to take the enemy's intel and return it to your base. Your team will only gain reinforcements when someone takes the enemy's intel, or when an enemy stealing your team's intel is neutralized. This mode requires very strong team coordination and strategy.

Flashpoint --- One neutral territorial objective and two caches on each side. The goal is to secure the entire area, controlling the middle and destroying the enemy's caches. Your team respawns when they secure the territorial objective or destroy a cache objective.

Elimination --- In this single life mode, attackers must destroy one of two weapon caches, or eliminate the enemy team within the time limit. Defenders must kill all attackers.

Cooperative Game Modes

Checkpoint --- Complete mission-based objectives in sequence against AI enemy. Each successful objective will respawn anyone who was eliminated along the way.

Hunt --- Insurgents are dispersed in the environment, and your squad must eliminate all targets while locating and destroying the weapons cache. High on tension, with only one-life.

Survival --- Play as Insurgents and fight against endless waves of progressively difficult Security enemies on night themed maps. Reaching safehouse objectives with your team earns you supply to purchase better weapons and spawns any dead teammates.

Outpost --- Defend your supply cache against endless waves of enemy trying to destroy it. Each successfully defended wave will bring in reinforcements of your teammates.

Conquer --- Capture the objectives in the area and defend them from enemy trying to retake them. Destroy enemy weapon caches to thin out their numbers.

Oh look, another source engine FPS, how ORIGINAL. These are the exact words that came out of my mouth when I first saw this game, and I feel ashamed of labelling it so quickly. Truth is, Insurgency is one of the purest shooters out there, rivalling CoD with the fluid gunplay and the Battlefield series with the power and intensity of the weapons, Insurgency proves to be in league with today's best shooters, despite it's older looks. Whether racking up for a session of solo play, or barking out enemy positions to your friends, Insurgency is a joy. A gritty, "I'm not peeking that corner because I'm gonna get lit the f*** up" kind of joy. You can really feel the kick of your weapon, and you can really feel the power of the enemies when their shots whiz by and hit the adobe wall behind you. This game is intense in the best kind of way, and I highly recommend to anyone that's trying to find a good squad shooter with a dedicated community. Also, check out Day of Infamy!

Great game. Really, the game itself is fantastic. But I'm giving this a thumbs down. You know why? Because of obnoxious in-game advertisments. Completely out of line considering it was a product bought and paid for. It'd be like buying a blu-ray and having ads in the middle of the movie.

This is the kind of game you expect to run like Battlefield or Call of duty.
But then you come back with PTSD.
"You don't know what I've seen Mom"
"It's not a phase, Ive died in Iraq 27 times now"
"Ive spent 65 hours in the middle east Dad"

Probably one of my all time favourites.

10/10 would die in Iraq again.

This game is basic.
Or, rather, all about the basics.
It's you.
It's your gun.
It's your team.
It's the enemy.

There are no health bars, no kill streaks, no indicator on how many enemies are down, or if you did or did not kill someone. It's simply about trying to best your opponent.
As someone who leads a team of over 30 players into the field, lemme give you a piece of advice. Learn the maps. Knowing where your enemies are most likely to be expected will win, or loose the game for you. Coordinate with your team, this is one of the games where the VoIP feature is realoly an asset instead of a nuisance. Sound is important - listen to the footsteps around you. Maybe one of the enemy team is distracted enough to call his teammates on the radio close to you, enabling you to hear their strategies. Find the balance between being aggressive, or waiting for an enemy's failure - One shot can and will often mean your death, but being too slow can mean inevitable defeat.

If you're not that much into the PvP high pressure aspect, however, this game also features an extensive CoOp-mode with five (!) different modes and loads of servers out there.

If you will, please trust someone who spent over 300 hours into INSURGENCY: This game, although extremely cheap, can rival every single triple-A title in terms of content, with the only disadvantage being the game's somewhat inferior graphics (Source Engine) and a lack of a real Ladder or Ranked-system.

Just, don't expect to be instantly rewarded for kills like in CoD, in BF or even in CS:GO. Killing someone is fine. But at the end of the day, You Are A Team. And you will Win Or Fall as a team.

I never played csgo or any source engine based games, so to start off from being a total noob to close combat tactical shooter is pretty hard but once you are ingame like aroung 2-3 hrs you can get your way into the game by knowing that you cannot run and jump from place to place without being shot and tactics play a huge role in this game as you have to try and be cool for most part than rushing to get killed than killing someone . This game feels real and its real because you die if you are spotted and you haven't spotted your enemy, just a good shot is enough to kill someone but the precision is not that easy compared to battlefield and the same goes the otherway.The mechanics in this game are good for close combat shooter and game port is simply amazing, i broke my gpu recently and thought i could play a game but this game runs at 50-60fps on 720p at a decent med-high setting on integrated intel hd graphics. The cons in the game are not that big deal, but i felt that they had to be the distance shooting without any sniper where you cant find whether you actually killed an enemy as there is no popup on screen and you can only guess by the blood when the shots are fired on enemy and the respawn takes time as the whole wave is respawed at a time. Overall i would recommend to buy game pack for you and your friend if you want to suffer for abit if you are new to close combat and learn how to play the game that is much closer to realty.

Insurgency - A Game you should have played.Its a great.The Graphics might be not the best,in fact Insurgency use an older Source Engine but the Explosions and the Weapon Finish looks awesome.You can choose between Insurgents and Security,each Faction has his own Weapons and Classes.Theres tons of Guns such M16,AK47,Galil,RPG-7,RPK and many many more,you wont miss any in this Game,trust me.The Community is nice,you will experience alot of People screaming "ALLAHU AKBAR" after shooting their Rocket launcher or at the end of the Match (im one of them).Also,Steam Workshop provides lot of Community-made Skins for Character Outfits,Weapon Mods such as Scopes,Maps and many more.This Game is pretty Hardcore compared to Call of Duty,Battlefield or CSGO.At the beginning its bit hard to understand what to do,where to go,where the enemy is coming from and so on.At this Point Insurgency is lot harder than the Competition and you will spend hours of hours to learn this Game.I can recommend this Game anyone who likes hardcore FPS.
