INSURGENCY is a game still in development that may have the chops to rival Counter Strike. It looks gritty, unforgiving and most importantly fun. Here is a look at why Insurgency could be the Action Indie Game to rival Counter Strike, if they play their cards right.
INSURGENCY Early Access Steam Game
INSURGENCY is leading an indie revival of the tactical shooter genre. Take to the streets for intense close quarters combat, where a team’s survival depends upon securing crucial strongholds.
This game is highly competitive and unforgivingly lethal. It strikes a balance between one-life gameplay and prolonged action.
Realistic weapons handling and equipment load-outs combined with simple heads-up-display and user interface keep players immersed in the fight.
INSURGENCY’s game modes create a distinctive experience from other first-person-shooters. Capturing objectives prolongs the entire team’s opportunity to achieve victory. Matches often become an epic tug of war as both teams struggle to gain control of objective areas.
The follow-up game to the award-winning Source mod is featured on Steam’s Early Access since April 2013, and now in Beta phase of development. It continues to be updated during the Beta phase, leading to a full release in 2014. Some features and content may be incomplete or not yet implemented.

To me this looks like it could take a real run at CS and draw a lot of the CS and FPS online community towards them. Good luck New World Interactive, you have some big pants to fill.
