Five years after releasing the popular free-to-play Source mod Insurgency, which received a million downloads in its first week alone and later the same year won the “Player’s Choice” Mod of the Year award, New World Interactive has returned to the shooting game with Insurgency 2.
“With more and more projects popping up, some feel Kickstarter is getting flooded. We see it as growing, and the projects needing to adapt to a both larger and wiser fan base,” said Jeremy Blum, founder of New World Interactive. “We’ve been listening to the community, playtesting daily and doing our best to make Insurgency 2 the FPS game we always wanted to play.”
The primary goal for Insurgency 2’s Kickstarter campaign is to raise $180,000, which will cover the cost to finish the game and bring it to market.

Insurgency 2 is a strategic, fast-paced and strikingly realistic first-person shooter that puts the player in modern conflict zones. Featuring highly scalable HD graphics with new and improved levels and gameplay, Insurgency 2 will boast a wide variety of powerful weaponry, and deliver players a unique blend of tactical action they can’t get elsewhere.
Kickstarter is a relatively new and innovative way to crowd-fund creative projects, powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded by the community at large or no money changes hands. For more information, please visit www.kickstarter.com.
