Slightly late news, yes. But it’s something that, to my surprise, almost no one knew anything about: turns out that the 2007 multiplayer classic: INSURGENCY: Modern Infantry Combat (or INS for short), the hyper-realistic Source mod that put you in the combat boots of a U.S. Marine or Iraqi insurgent, caught in the middle of the Second Gulf War – is getting a sequel.

But its community valiantly held its ground, and to this day, Insurgency’s most critical and insightful community blog remains open. The mod itself, however, does not.
