Hi all, I'm happy to be able to share with you a post written by New World Interactive on what to expect for future updates, and what the team are currently working on.
Hi everyone my name is Jon Higgins, and I am the Marketing and Communications Director here at New World Interactive. It’s been a little while since we last spoke about the development state of Insurgency: Sandstorm, and we’d like to take this opportunity to update our fans on what our team have been working on.
With the PC launch moving to December 12th, our team took a fresh look at the feedback you had provided during the course of the Beta and evaluated what our top priorities should be given the additional development and testing time. This includes optimisation, improving the...
Today we are announcing the delay of Insurgency: Sandstorm from its originally planned release date on September 18th 2018. The game will now be releasing for Windows PC on 12 December 2018, and the Pre-order Beta will continue until the release of the game.
This was one of the hardest decisions our team has ever had to make and not one taken lightly. However, we feel it is in the best interest of the game and our community to spend more time working to ensure we deliver the best possible experience.

Just spotted this over at PCPer.com Unity has just released their 2018.2 update
One of the goals for Unity 2018.2 has been to build on the Scriptable Render Pipelines (SRPs) in order to enable next-level rendering. Another focus area has been to develop a range of features and improvements that will help you succeed in mobile. Let’s take a brief look at what we’ve done in these two areas before going into more detail on the entire release.

Insurgency: Sandstorm releases in a few months and we’re all very excited to get it in your hands. In order to ensure the best possible experience on release, we are doing another round of Windows PC-only Alpha testing.
There have been a lot of changes since our last Closed Alpha. We’d like to get feedback on all the new maps, balance changes, UI improvements, matchmaking systems, and server hosting functions that have been updated since the last public test. When providing feedback please keep in mind that the game has not yet been fully optimised and some content is still work in progress, this Alpha is intended as stress test and not indicative of the final product.
Looks like EA/Dice will be sending out invites to a closed Alpha taking place tomorrow the 28th.
There is a Battlefield™ V Closed Alpha just around the corner. In this post, you’ll learn the purpose of the Closed Alpha, what it will contain, when it will start, and who will be able to join. There are many questions to cover, so let’s jump right in.

Just spotted this article over at PC World and while I knew of most, some I did not
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Steam’s rife with hidden features that can help you get more out of your PC gaming experience—tricks that few people ever touch. Here are some of the most useful, starting with obscure (yet helpful) library management tools on this page before diving into more exotic tips.
While I've only been testing the back end for the past 4-6 months. I've been wanting to update the back end forum software for a while.
We've moved from vBulletin to Xenforo 2.x. I've also updated the site to SSL via digicert so we're now fully https compliant. While I've turned the site on, I'm still in the process of cleaning up the front page and some other areas. The site should also work much better on mobile devices.
While I'm still tweaking and cleaning up. please if you find any issues with any part of the site post in this thread. If you can't post, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please poke around and let me know if you find any issues.
Once the site is working fine, I'll be moving on to the back end software as well.
