10 August 2018

Focus Home Interactive and New World Interactive are excited to announce that Insurgency: Sandstorm will release on PC on September 18th, 2018. Players can jump into Pre-order Beta 1 and play three maps and four modes from the final release right now by pre-ordering the game on Steam at a 10% discount for £23.39 / $26.99 / €26.99. Owners of the original Insurgency, which now boasts a player population of over five million, will receive an additional 10% loyalty discount, available through the end of the year.

Pre-order Beta 1, which is now live, features three maps from the final version of the game, every game mode, dozens of weapons, and hundreds of loadout options (including explosives, armour, and ammo carriers). Combined with fully implemented vehicles and support fire, Insurgency: Sandstorm provides the most intense experience of contemporary war ever. Catch a glimpse of the action in the Raw PVP Gameplay video released last week, then get playing on Steam.
