Insurgency: Sandstorm has been a big success on PC. This made it almost a foregone conclusion that the team-based, tactical first-person shooter would eventually make its way to consoles. The game is known for its brutal realism with death coming easily and ammo rarely at all. This is not the sort of game you want to run around being a lone wolf, like in Call of Duty. Here, tactics and teamwork are rewarded. Well, I say rewarded, it’s more that you won’t die as quickly if you play tactically and in cooperation with your teammates. When a console port was announced, the game was targeting a 2019 release. However, thanks to a Reddit post from the developers, we no know that the console version of Insurgency: Sandstorm will launch in Spring 2020. You can check out the post here but here are the highlights –
Insurgency: Sandstorm will officially be coming to consoles in the Spring of 2020.
We recently finalized our agreement with a console co-development partner. We’ve chosen to move forward with Black Tower Studios, and we are super excited to announce the partnership! We’re also pretty excited to announce a few select things regarding the console release. We’ll be releasing a time-sensitive, console-exclusive map for approximately 2 weeks when we launch.
Furthermore, as we close in on the release date, we’ll be doing all sorts of contests and giveaways within our community, ranging from things like an Insurgency Console, signed copies of the game, and merchandise!
The team at New World Interactive certainly seem excited and on the right track. Here’s hoping that the game turns out as well on consoles as it has on PC. If you are unfamiliar with Insurgency: Sandstorm, you can check out the trailer and official description below –
Insurgency: Sandstorm is a team-based, tactical FPS based on lethal close quarters combat and objective-oriented multiplayer gameplay for PC and consoles.
