Insurgency: Sandstorm | Raw PvP Gameplay

Check out the intense new raw gameplay footage for Insurgency: Sandstorm and prepare for the first exclusive Pre-order Beta on August 9!

Insurgency: Sandstorm is New World Interactive’s new game: a reborn, improved, and expanded sequel to indie multiplayer FPS hit Insurgency, coming September 2018 to PC and 2019 to consoles. See how close to the action you can get in the new trailer which features raw PVP gameplay from the Closed Technical Alpha. We're also happy to announce Pre-order Beta Test 1 beginning next week.


Gameplay is much the same but the bots are harder to predict. The maps are larger and more complex. The extras like call-ins and drivable vehicles are good but don't over dominate the game. If you don't work as a team you get slaughtered, public servers are hard going for this. Numptys team killing, running off into areas you have told them about the artillery you have called in. Getting pissed off because they were killed by the devastating explosives. When people talk, give orders and follow them it's much better.

This game is very intense and after playing for a couple of hours I needed to take a break. It was great fun but there were more than a few oh shit moment. (Good thing I was wearing my brown pants). Any game that can elicit genuine emotions you know it's a good game.

Performance, oh dear god that need to work on performance. I know my graphics card is getting a little old now but it is a 980Ti. This game sucks balls on anything over medium settings. At which point it looks more ugly than the old one. It's hard to see any of the gameplay changes that couldn't have been achieved with the old engine. Those gameplay changes make for a much better game but damn get your settings wrong and it will feel like molasses.

Fingers crossed they will get the performance sorted with optimisation. This really is a beta test and not marketing like many other games that let you play a bit just before the game is released.
