    Anyone playing this game? Seems very interesting!

    Purchased it today for a closed beta, and well performance is HORRIBLE.

    At 3440x1440 on 1080Ti, with Literally every graphical setting on minimum besides Aliasing, I get stutter mess with 50-60fps.

    The first was really addicting, got the second. Gameplay feels more solid from the first, graphics are slightly updated. Sound design is very good in my opinion. Yes, the performance is really underwhelming. Not terrible for me, but nowhere near where it should be.

    I am looking forward to the singleplayer quite enthusiastically. A happy purchase for me, just hope they iron out the performance before full release.

    +1 to that, I won't refund it and will wait for performance fine-tuning.

    I played all settings Maxed out. 2560X1080P...… DSR to 2850 etc. Reshade installed. Ya gotta install Reshade to really see the bump maps/colors/textures properly. Game looks great. Love pretty much everything. Definitely not vanilla Insurgency. I only have a bit of chug when we get into vehicle truck box before match starts. After that, once onfoot, it`s all good. Seeing someone running looked a tad floaty. Was assured by Devs that most animations were placeholders, being replaced by much better mocap at release. Bring this 1 on. Can`t wait.

    And all that running at smooth 10 fps. Fantastic!

    I was in the alpha and really enjoyed it, although my biggest complaint was with the performance and network. It seems it hasn't been too improved with the beta which is a little concerning. Performance issues aside the game is looking absolutely amazing gameplay-wise and may end up being my favorite online game to play if they iron out the bugs in time.

    I thought they cancelled the singleplayer.

    Loved the original, this one is ok, the performance is horrible and they have increased the TTK too much for my liking but we'll see how it turns out at release.

    It won't be there initially, they plan to add it down the road. Apparently, the campaign will be oriented around a Kurdish female soldier.

    Closed beta if you purchase it. I managed to play for 1 day, yesterday they stopped closed beta. Next closed beta will be on 30th of August and will last up until release date.

    @XenthorX

    I love it.

    It's refreshing to play a game where you can't jump around like a wanker because people who do that get instantly mowed down.

    No dumping of mags into people in this game, you really have to play carefully.

    4K/60FPS here, there were performance problems when it launched, not anymore (not for me anyway).

    So, is it worth buying now with the 20% discount or wait? Is the multiplayer fun?

    It's a great game, I play it every so often

    Stuttering/lag is getting better, but it's still there. For anyone who had the beta installed make sure you nuke everything in your " %localappdata%\Insurgency\Saved\Config\WindowsClient " folder. It resets your video settings (not profile/character) but might help with the stuttering, as it seems there may be residual settings from the older versions causing issues. Lots of posts of people claiming this helps.. and it did seem to help a little for me although I still get some bad stutters and drops here and there.

    Overall amazing game, just needs more content (maps with varying scenery, specifically) and more optimization. If anyone played America's Army back in the day... this game feels kind of similar. CoOp is top notch, and I find myself playing that way more than adversarial just because of how damn good it is.
