At E3 2017, developers New World Interactive have announced a sequel to their multi-million selling game Insurgency and its called Insurgency: Sandstorm.
The trailer is narrated by one of the main characters in the game, a U.S. Army veteran turned volunteer soldier, who finds himself on an unexpected journey alongside a female fighter native to the region and a few other characters yet to be introduced. Their objectives have aligned, and their vision of the war blurred as it touches each of them in different but converging ways.
Designed to retain what made Insurgency great, and build upon it, the FPS epic comes enhanced and expanded as a new game. It adds a host of new modes and content to be revealed later, including a new Story Mode. This story is playable cooperatively as a squad of up to four players (two player split-screen) or alone – players will travel as a party cut off from support across a war-torn landscape on a new mission that is deeply personal.
Like Insurgency, the gameplay of Sandstorm rewards teamwork and objective-play over personal success. Players will see new features such as drivable light vehicles, character customisation, un-lockable cosmetic items, fire support requests, ranked matchmaking, and more.
