June 14, 2019 Insurgency: Sandstorm – New map, mode and weapons set to launch today in time for upcoming Steam Free Weekend Insurgency: Sandstorm, the smash-hit indie FPS from New World Interactive, is set to receive even more free content this month as players are invited to join the fight in the Steam Free Weekend from June 20th - June 24th. This is the perfect opportunity for newcomers to join the huge community of Insurgency: Sandstorm players, who already enjoy Insurgency’s signature style of immersive, team based, high lethality gameplay.

Today’s monster update includes new weapons, a remake of the classic Insurgency map ‘Ministry’, along with a zombie-inspired arcade mode called Frenzy. Update 1.3 is expected to go live at 3pm MT / 11pm CEST today.

Check out all this and more in the Free Weekend Trailer.

Other additions in today’s update include:

  • New weapons and attachments:
    • QBZ-03 Chinese assault rifle and TAR-21 MARS-style red dot optic for Insurgents
    • VHS-2 Croatian assault rifle and MRO “Micro Red Dot” optic for Security
  • Ministry - new indoor-focused map (remake of the Insurgency classic)

New World Interactive has many more free content updates planned for the rest of this year and 2020, including modding support, game modes, maps, weapons, and more. Take a look at some of what’s due to arrive in the next six months in the recently announced Free Content Roadmap.
