New World Interactive today announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to develop a sequel to the total conversion Half-Life 2 modification based on current global conflicts.
“We’ve been working on Insurgency 2 for some time now and it’s coming along quite nicely. I like to think of the gameplay as a mix between Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear and Day of Defeat, which are two of our all time personal favorites.
A lot of people are asking how the game compares to the original Insurgency… Well, the code is based on Beta 1, so if you’re familiar with how the game felt back then you shouldn’t have a hard time getting into Insurgency 2.
Our situation is unique because we’re not coming to you with an idea and some concept art. We’re coming to you after almost a year of self-sustained development. We’ve already taken our game quite far along – figuring out what works and what doesn’t. We know what we have to do to make this game as great as it can be.
