Insurgency: Sandstorm is proud to announce that they have reached 500,000 players, and with this announcement comes their first major content drop. In this update the “Arcade Mode” is released, which features a rotating cast of game modes, to keep the game fresh and exciting. This will lay the foundation for adding non-traditional game modes in the future. Things will start off more traditional though, with a classic Team Deathmatch mode, that removes faction restrictions on weapons and upgrades. This also will give more supply points to make selections with. The rules are simple: Build a load out and kill the enemy until you win. New modes are coming in the future though.
In order to shake things up a bit, five new weapons have been added to Sandstorm. Two new variations of the MP5 (MP5A2 and MP5A5) are new low-caliber weapons with solid recoil control. Two new machine guns also arrive, the M240B and MG3, which are high-caliber damage and a ridiculous rate of fire respectively. Finally, a new Security handgun, the PF940, features 9mm rounds and a massive high capacity magazine upgrade of 31 rounds.
Finally, there is a sale going on for Insurgency: Sandstorm, for 20% off on Steam. This is available until March 5th, so don’t miss out!
