Steam now offers open beta testing of Insurgency: Sandstorm, offering the chance to help vet the Windows version of
this first-person shooter sequel.
This post offers a
gameplay overview trailer along with details on how this works and what
developer New World Interactive hopes to accomplish:
Starting today and
running through the weekend, an open beta period will invite everyone to try the
game for free on Steam. This includes every map, weapon, coop & PvP game mode
and all other content found in the final game.
Competitive matchmaking will be available on full release. The game is now
playable totally for free to everyone on PC for this limited period between 8am
PST today through 9am PST Monday. We look forward to your feedback and we hope
you enjoy the beta this weekend!
Insurgency: Sandstorm is a game of team-based tactics and objective-oriented
gameplay in a fictional, contemporary Middle Eastern conflict, complete with
player versus player, competitive matchmaking and co-operative game modes versus
AI. Your soldier’s appearance, weapons, attachments, armor, and equipment are
all up to you. Call in airstrikes, use vehicles with mounted weapons, and equip
a wide range of specialist weaponry from grenades to drones to C4 explosives.
Prepare for a hardcore depiction of combat with deadly ballistics, light attack
vehicles, destructive artillery, and unprecedented audio design putting the fear
back into the genre. Death comes fast, ammunition must be carefully managed, and
the environment must be tactically navigated at every step toward victory.
