Insurgency: Sandstorm is New World Interactive’s new game coming to Windows, then Linux and Mac. Which is also a reborn, improved, and expanded sequel to multiplayer hit Insurgency. Coming September 18th. And now we have a new Gamescon trailer, but what does this have to do with Linux?
So thanks to all the positive feedback the game during the first Pre-order Beta. The studio has polished and optimized the game to meet players’ expectations. Therefore I am happy to announce Pre-order Beta Test 2 beginning next week.
Now, since the game is developed in Unreal Engine 4, it should work using Proton via the Steam Beta client.
Having already tested Foxhole and Q.U.B.E. 2 which both work. Also having to use the Proton xact fix with Winetricks. So chances are the game will likely work, even in the upcoming Beta.
Meanwhile, experience the intensity of modern combat. And check out the positive reception from journalists and players during the previous Pre-order Beta with the Gamescom Trailer.
