As for what Sandstorm has to offer gamers is modern battlefields utilizing gameplay mechanics that blur the lines between “reality” and a shooter game.
Each weapon will be affected by unique ballistic calculations taking into account bullet-drop. Other functions such as choosing to drop magazines for faster reloads, carefully opening doors to keep quiet, or going guns blazing is just one of the many things you can do in Sandstorm.
Looking over to the PvP mode, you will be able to participate in “large-scale” battles with up to 16 Vs. 16 (32 players) skirmishes with artillery barrages, gunships, A-10 strikes, and 4×4 vehicle support.
In addition to the above, maps resembling realistic places with interiors to breach and PoI to control, Sandstorm rewards teamwork and objective-play over lone-wolf/personal success.
