This one has more balance and bugfix changes, and more responses to the "worst unit" polls. This time, the Mobile Repair Station gets some overdue love. Most substantially with this release, however, are some bug/balance fixes relating to the AI and how it gets reinforcements.

Those were being held artificially low on certain difficulties, in certain circumstances, and when the AI had certain ships. So we fixed the glitch, and this will just work itself out naturally. Haha. In some recent versions, players were wondering why we were being so nice to the player team in terms of balance changes; well, now the other shoe drops, I guess!

It's not all that bad, really, but it's nice to sound ominous sometimes.

DENVER, COLORADO | MAR 13, 2012 - For those of you who thought that the INSURGENCY franchise was dead - boy were you wrong! Many of the original creators of the mod have returned from years of industry experience to resurrect the once popular game and turn it into something people would be interested in purchasing at a low cost. A small studio was formed in Denver, Colorado where the New World Interactive development team has been hard at work turning this sequel into a reality. Six months later, our core team of 3 onsite and 8 offsite developers are ready to introduce something quite refreshing to the FPS scene - INSURGENCY 2.

INS2 takes place in the present and near past in insurgencies that have taken place all throughout the world - Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya and Chechnya. The game's controls, teamwork focus, and high powered weapons make it feel in many ways like the original Source Mod, but the re-designed levels, new game modes, increased pace, and expanded loadout options have made the game much more accessible.

This project has been top secret over the past 6 months, but we have decided to allow the world to see what we've been working on at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The feedback was overall very positive! A surprising amount of former INS fans emerged, all of whom were shocked and excited to see a sequel in the works.

We will be releasing some video footage from GDC shortly just to show you guys that we were there, and we really have a game in the works. It may not be the best representation of gameplay as we were too busy talking to people instead of taking more video, but you guys can surely expect more media to come over the course of the coming months as the game continues to be polished.

More info can be found at <a href="" target="_blank">Insurgency 2</a>.
