Although E3 2018 ended back on June 14th, games from the event are still popping up, which includes gameplay videos. One of those games happens to be Focus Home Interactive and New World Interactive’s Insurgency: Sandstorm, wherein multiplayer co-op footage has surfaced.
Thanks to YouTuber BigfryTV, we get to see alpha gameplay footage of Insurgency: Sandstorm. The video definitely leans on the alpha-side of things, especially if we take the drivable truck into account. Anyway, words from said YouTuber and his video sit below:
“I got to play Insurgency: Sandstorm at E3! This gameplay is from the Co-op mode, where 8 players must take points and advance throughout the map!”
If you don’t know, around 40 weapons will be in the game. Some of the weapons will be familiar ones, while others are new to the series. Additionally, you can use over 40 attachments, and more weapons and attachments will be added post-launch.
Furthermore, Insurgency: Sandstorm will not feature loot-boxes or item trading. It’s unclear if the devs will add microtransactions post-launch like Battlefield 1 or Ghost Recon: Wildlands, but what is certain is that time will tell.
As for the PC version of the game, it is set for a September release this year and will come with the following game modes: Push, Firefight, and Capture the Base for Versus, as well as Checkpoint for co-op. Operation (an experimental mode) and Outpost (a legacy mode of Insurgency) are under inspection and will release as post-launch content.
The devs plan on shipping Insurgency: Sandstorm to PC via Steam for $29.99. However, if you pre-order the game you will get a 10% off discount, and if you already own Insurgency, there will be an additional 10% off “loyalty discount,” which equates to a 20% off discount.
