Insurgency: Sandstorm is New World Interactive’s reborn, improved and expanded sequel coming to Windows, Linux, Mac and now open for preorders.
This is the follow-up to the indie multiplayer FPS hit, Insurgency. Which is also coming September 2018 to Windows.

A Brief Update on Linux Support:

Hi Todd, right now we don’t want to publicly commit to any further information about the Linux release other than “we will work on it once the Windows version is out”.

So along with this news comes the new E3 2018 trailer. Letting eager fans discover how Insurgency: Sandstorm brings you closer to the action than ever before in tense. This also includes coordinated skirmishes where skill is rewarded. Since teamwork wins the fight. But the trailer looks deliciously good. And no singleplayer.

Also, no word on Linux support at release. We are waiting on further feedback from New World Interactive. But as expected with most Unreal Engine 4 games, we have to wait. Porting to Linux takes more time.

Insurgency: Sandstorm – E3 Gameplay Trailer (Windows, no Linux yet)

Since the gameplay trailer looks quite good. It’s impressive to hear the female characters reaction to different events. As well as the sense of panic while taking cover. Interacting with the male character to meet, take out enemies and work to survive.

New World Interactive and Focus Home Interactive are also excited to announce the opening of pre-orders on Steam (Windows). So PC preorders with a 10% discount are open now. Getting access to the beta a few weeks before the release of the game. Plus an additional 10% discount to players that own the original Insurgency. This additional discount will be offered for preorders until the end of 2018.

Humble Store just offers the 10% discount.

Prepare for a hardcore depiction of combat with deadly ballistics, light attack vehicles, destructive artillery, and unprecedented audio design the injects tense fear back into the genre. Death comes fast, ammunition must be carefully managed, and the environment must be tactically navigated at every step toward victory.

Insurgency: Sandstorm is a game of team-based tactics and objective-oriented gameplay in a fictional, contemporary Middle Eastern conflict, complete with player versus player, competitive matchmaking and co-operative game modes versus AI. Your soldier’s appearance, weapons, attachments, armor, and amount of carried ammo are all up to you. Call in airstrikes, use vehicles with mounted weapons, and equip a wide range of specialist weaponry from grenades to drones to C4 explosives.
