Insurgency: Sandstorm, published by Focus Home Interactive, is New World’s sequel to Insurgency, which will take the renowned shooter to consoles as well as Steam next year. As well as introducing a slew of new features, Sandstorm takes a graphical leap to Unreal Engine 4. If you're not familiar with the original title then it's a close-quarters infantry shooter with both multiplayer and cooperative modes.
The new title will feature a story mode, giving you the option to play with up to three of your friends through a narrative based series of missions. The game is fictional, but inspired by real events and unlike many squad shooters, also features a female protagonist.
"We are very excited to venture into the realm of storytelling to offer more depth for Insurgency. Shooters do not have to be about mindless killing, so players can stop and ask questions about the world a game represents, and find answers within the narrative,” said New World Creative Director Andrew Spearin. “Historically, the avant garde in many art forms are who disrupt and redefine genres. For a decade Insurgency has been in that position, and we are emerging from indie obscurity to innovate the FPS genre."
