Under the development of New World Interactive, Insurgency will be on sale through December 16th, 2014 to celebrate their last content update for 2014.

Available on Steam for 55% off retail through Tuesday, Counter Strike competitor Insurgency is celebrating the latest content update “Nightfall” by moving units at just $6.74. Set as a gritty, independently developed first-person shooter, the latest content update for Insurgency packs in a host of new features and updates in polish to bump up the level of excitement in the Nightfall patch.

With a “Very Postitive” rating on Steam across 17,000+ reviews, Insurgency is a solid shooter that includes all the odds-and-ends of the top tier shooters on Steam, including achievements, level editors for custom map creation [including Steam Workshop], and Steam Trading Cards. For multiplayer focused shooter lovers, Valve Anti-Cheat is also enabled to ensure that you don’t fall victim to headshots through solid surfaces.
