Insurgency: Sandstorm, the intense FPS sequel will be receiving a major update on November 8, bringing many much-requested changes as developer New World Interactive prepare for launch on December 12 for PC. Insurgency: Sandstorm will arrive for consoles sometime in 2019. This update includes a brand new map, Precinct, a new Insurgent weapon, as well as various new options, tweaks, and fixes.
The new update teaser trailer showcases Precinct, a large scale urban map set in a city within the fictional, contemporary conflict of Insurgency: Sandstorm. Tight corners, broken barricades, destroyed streets of burnt-out cars and makeshift roadblocks epitomize this map, bringing the frenetic action and tactical squad-based play of Insurgency to a brand new, urban locale.
Other improvements include graphical options, anti-aliasing, animation and character models, plus related optimization improvements to help the game run better on more systems, along with additional cosmetics, and a new Alpha AK weapon. These, plus additional server browser improvements, will continue to see changes in the run up to release.
Finally, gameplay changes will target everything from hundreds of improvements and bug fixes to the specifics of movement speeds, weapon statistics, map layouts, an Unreal Engine update to version 4.20, and more. A full change-list will be available upon release.
