This is a benchmark of the Source Engine Insurgency game, a tactical first person shooter developed by New World Interactive. The test profile assumes you have a Steam account, have Steam installed for the system, and that Insurgency is already installed. This automates the process of executing the game and using a standardized time demo.

This test will attempt to install the necessary game using your Steam account. If the test appears hung you may need to manually exit the Steam client.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark insurgency.
