Taking a look over to forums.focus-home.com, we learn information about the two pre-order betas. The first pre-order beta will kick-off from August 9th to August 13th. As the name implies, you must pre-ordered Insurgency: Sandstorm on Steam to gain access to “Pre-order Beta 1.”
As for “Pre-order Beta 2,” folks will be able to enter it starting on August 30th, a few weeks before the initial release. Additionally, the second beta will offer three playable maps.
Moreover, Focus Home Interactive and New World Interactive 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 tallies up to a 20% off discount.
According to the host of NWI live stream, we learn that the console version (PS4 and Xbox One) will launch during the first half of 2019.
The PC release set for this year’s September will feature 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.
As for weapons and attachments, 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, which more weapons and attachments will be added post-launch.
