As Steam early access game Insurgency continues development, it launches two new game modes, Outpost and V.I.P. Escort. They should update automatically shortly.
In Outpost, players try to survive an onslaught of artificial opponents, which come in increasingly difficult waves, with no end. For the VIP mode, one team tries to escort a high-profile player to a designated area, while the opposition tries to assassinate the target.
These gameplay modes should bring some diversity to the dredge of similar modes the game has had so far, mostly concerned about control points. That should definitely make me interested in playing the game once more.
We have screenshots.
Hey kids, we’ve been ditching you for a few Sundays now and we haven’t been giving you a smorgasbord of lost video releases either, so that needs to change. So, we’ve got a little something special in this “cut from the team” article.
We’ve been into Tumblr lately and that site is all about .gif sets, so we figured you’d like to see some right here for the selection we brought up this week. We’ll start with the top of the underdogs, as Batman Arkham Origins sort of flew under the radar at Comic Con, ironically. Still, this reveal of Copperhead both has a seductive slither and a terrifying Black Mask. You should watch it.
Secondly, Half-Life mod conversion Insurgency is back with a new trailer. It looks a whole lot like Counter-Strike in the open air, though the clip does manage to put team play in a good light with this grouped gameplay segments.
Now, this next one; we don’t have a clue what the theme is. In the TV show clip for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, a clown is putting on a show for kids when suddenly a mysterious figure appears from the shadows and bad stuff happens? It looks like someone really hates clowns.
Finally, the latest clip for Wildstar explores some more of its characters. This colorful online game looks like it has some smoothly animated character models. We hope to see even more from it soon.
Feel free to tell us in the comments if you’d like to see more .gifs and stuff from us.
Source Engine game Insurgency has joined Steam’s new Early Access store. It’s available for download right now for $14.99 and as a nice touch it’s appropriately priced for Europeans as well, going for a price of €11.99. That price is 25% cheaper than it will be at the time of release.
To commemorate the occasion and show potential players more about the game, the developer released a short clip filled with gameplay scenes. It retains the classic cleanness of Source projects such as Nuclear Dawn. Expect a fair share of brownness however, as the game is a modern military shooter. Online matches promise to include in excess of 32 players.
Online multiplayer shooter Insurgency has added some details to its Early Access build. For instance, it will add a Realism Mode where friendly fire is possible or players can’t get hints by following death cameras. This follows a similar system as realistic first person shooter Red Orchestra.
Additionally, a cooperative mode will allow players to hunt artificial opponents in a series of dedicated maps. Speaking of maps, a new Heights location has been added and the Siege grounds turn to nightfall in a map called Contact.
This title is part of the modding community and is spawned from the idea of Half-Life 2 – Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat, which fully converted the original game.
Modders turned professional New World Interactive have released an Early Access build for PC shooter Insurgency to their community. Gamers can pay $19.99 to play the game even before it lands in Beta by going to www.playinsurgency.com.
This build also ensures supporters a chance to play along with the developers, as well as get their say in how development should progress. Up to 32 players can take part in this first person shooter, with customization options for 3 different classes. The name Insurgency is derived from the full conversion mod of Half-Life 2 with a similar name. We’ve received a few screenshots of how this game in development looks right now.
