'Insurgency: Sandstorm' gets a free update and it's 50% off Steam

Operation Breakaway has been released this week for Insurgency: Sandstorm and the game is also discounted until October 13.

This year has been great for some games. With No Man’s Sky recently mounting a comeback and Left 4 Dead 2 community updates going live, we see another tactical FPS game getting the internet’s attention.

Focus Home Interactive dropped off a free massive update for Insurgency: Sandstorm—a team-based, tactical FPS based on lethal close-quarters combat and objective-oriented multiplayer gameplay for PC and consoles.

The game gives a hint of Escape From Tarkov in terms of realism. As of this writing, Insurgency: Sandstorm still gets over a thousand of players daily.

New co-op game mode

While Rainbow Six Siege focuses more on competing for head-to-head, completing objectives, and engaging in strategic gunfights, Insurgency: Sandstorm gets your blood boiling through its action-packed battles which keep you immersed in teamwork.

They have recently introduced a new map called Outpost, which gives players a challenge in area defense. Players start with limited equipment, and they can gain more as they finish through waves of relentless enemies.

Losing objective forces players to fall back to a new area to hold. However, falling back is only suitable for a limited time before it’s game over.

A new map unveiled plus new equipment

Insurgency: Sandstorm also included a new map called Tell, wherein players are exposed to tight urban close-quarters combat. This is where the players’ reflexes are put to the test as they try to fight off their enemies swiftly.

They also expanded their plethora of weapon attachments ranging from foregrips to under-barrel upgrades. The AUG A3 for the security forces and a FAMAS F1 for the insurgents has been added. Another batch of cosmetic skins for both factions is also included in the free update.

New World, the independent game developer who created Insurgency in 2014, also streamed live gameplay on their Twitch channel this week.

For those who want to grab a copy of Insurgency: Sandstorm, you can get it on Steam while it’s on sale at 50% off for only US$15 [AU$21] until October 13.
