Our videos of Insurgency's beta

Our videos of Insurgency's beta

We were offered to make videos of the "early access" version of Insurgency on Steam, a standalone made from a Half Life 2 mod of the same name, so our friend Salocin was pleased to do it.

What Salocin thinks about the game

The game is meant to have a realistic gameplay and recalls the old Battlefields in simulation mode.

There is a choice of different classes in each map, there are four squads and a few classes to choose from in every squad. Most of the time assault classes are quickly chosen by the players, or sniper classes on open maps.

The available maps are remakes of those found in the mod but some are new, they offer different types of environments (snow, sand, city, night).

This is a revamped version of the original Insurgancy mod.

Finally a k/b & mouse player for the PC FPS games ! I hope you get Salocin to do more videos in the future. ( Sorry but I cringe everytime I see PC FPS games being played with a controller :/ )

I went back playing PC games with mouse and keyboard since months, look at my Crysis 3 videos for example :)

Expect some Arma 3 (again, was beta last time), BF4 (beta and retail) videos with kb and mouse from me as well :)

I still play most of the time with a pad, but not in BF/Crysis or some multiplayer games now.

There is no reason to play single player campaigns with mouse and keyboard considering the overall difficulty of games now, even in hard mode. Plus, I personally play on my 46 inches TV, so how would I use a mouse when sitting on my couch? :)

The absence of analog controls would also make it impossible to make nice environments videos. ;)

I can't stand playing with keyboard, it doesn't feel right anymore. It's uncomfortable and I prefer using a controller. Also, I hate multiplayer so it's not like I can't enjoy playing that way. For example, I don't see why I wouldn't enjoy Outlast as much with a k/b and mouse.

    GriftGFX I wonder if they intend to do more limited time modes like Fortnite. There's basically no way for them to keep up with that. (22 Hours ago)
