Developer New World Interactive and publisher Focus Home Interactive announced that Insurgency: Sandstorm, the FPS sequel to indie smash-hit Insurgency, has launched today on PC.
Insurgency: Sandstorm is a game of team-based tactics and objective-oriented gameplay complete with player versus player, competitive matchmaking, and co-operative game modes versus AI set in a fictional, contemporary Middle Eastern conflict. Your soldier’s appearance, weapons, attachments, armor, and amount of carried ammo are all up to you. Call in airstrikes, request helicopter support, drive vehicles with mounted weapons, and use a wide range of specialist weaponry from grenades to drones to C-4 explosives.
After months of closed beta testing for pre-order players and a successful Open Beta weekend, Insurgency: Sandstorm launches today better optimized and complete with all launch features. Future updates will include new maps, weapons, cosmetics, mod support, and more, free of charge to avoid splitting the community.
Insurgency: Sandstorm is available on Steam for $29.99/£26.99/€29.99. Owners of the original Insurgency will receive a 10% loyalty discount. Insurgency: Sandstorm is also coming to consoles in 2019.
