Focus Home Interactive and New World Interactive channel their combined interactivity to announce the launch of the promised preorder beta for
Insurgency: Sandstorm, their upcoming first-person shooter. The game is due for
official release on September 18th for Windows, with consoles to follow next
year, but those who preorder the PC edition
Steam can play right now and through the weekend.
This recent video

there is a Pre-Order Beta Launch
livestream that's currently underway. Here are the details:
Home Interactive and New World Interactive are excited to announce that
Insurgency: Sandstorm will release on PC on September 18th, 2018. Players can
jump into Pre-order Beta 1 and play three maps and four modes from the final
release right now by pre-ordering the game on Steam at a 10% discount for £23.39
/ $26.99 / €26.99. Owners of the original Insurgency, which now boasts a player
population of over five million, will receive an additional 10% loyalty
discount, available through the end of the year.
Pre-order Beta 1, which went live today, features three maps from the final
version of the game, every game mode, dozens of weapons, and hundreds of loadout
options (including explosives, armour, and ammo carriers). Combined with fully
implemented vehicles and support fire, Insurgency: Sandstorm provides the most
intense experience of contemporary war ever. Catch a glimpse of the action in
the Raw PVP Gameplay video released last week, then get playing on Steam.
