Two betas planned for Insurgency: Sandstorm
Fans who preordered the upcoming sequel can try it out
New World Interactive has announced plans to host an exclusive Pre-order Beta for Insurgency: Sandstorm.
From August 9 through August 13, players who have pre-ordered Insurgency: Sandstorm on Steam will receive exclusive access to Pre-order Beta 1. This will be the first official beta test, and the first time the game will be playable at home.
Available in Pre-order Beta 1 will be three maps from the final release build. The four game modes - Firefight, Push, Checkpoint, and Skirmish - each change the accessible part of the map, altering the available strategies.
Pre-order Beta 2 will begin August 30, just a few weeks before release, and have a further three maps available for play. This will allow players to test the full content of the launch version of the game.
Insurgency: Sandstorm releases on Windows PC in September 2018, with Linux and Mac support coming later, and on PS4 and Xbox One in 2019.
