Insurgency: Sandstorm is New World Interactive’s new game: a reborn, improved, and expanded sequel to indie multiplayer FPS hit Insurgency. The game is coming to PC in September 2018 with a console release following in 2019. See how close to the action you can get in the new trailer (watch below) which features raw PVP gameplay from the Closed Technical Alpha. Focus Home Interactive and New World Interactive have also announced that the Pre-order Beta Test 1 is beginning next week.

From August 9th through August 13th, players who have pre-ordered Insurgency: Sandstorm on Steam will receive exclusive access to Pre-order Beta 1. This will be the first official beta test, and the first time the game will be playable at home. New World Interactive is looking forward to hearing what the wider Insurgency fanbase thinks and will be gathering as much feedback as possible leading up to the second Beta phase closer to the full release in September.

Pre-order Beta 1 will feature three maps from the final release build. Each is a complex maze of brutal interiors, deadly sniping lanes, and wide-open battlefields, uniquely designed to make every moment of every game feel fresh. Whether your playstyle is run and gun, slow-paced, or more specialized, you’ll find plenty to study and learn across the maps.

The four game modes – Firefight, Push, Checkpoint, and Skirmish – each change the accessible part of the map, drastically altering the available strategies. Pre-order Beta 2 will begin August 30th, just a few weeks before release, and have a further three maps available for play. This will allow players to test the full content of the launch version of the game.

New World Interactive will be focusing their work during Beta 2 on bug fixing, server stability, and starting work on their extensive post-launch support plans. Eager players can pre-order on Steam now for a 10% discount, reducing the price to £23.39.

An additional 10% loyalty discount will be given to fans that own the original Insurgency, bringing the pre-order price down to under £20. This additional discount will be offered until the end of 2018, and all pre-orders will receive instant access to any ongoing beta tests as well as future ones.
