The Insurgency series first saw life as a Source mod called Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat that was created in 2007. A full-development sequel called Insurgency was released in 2014 and has garnered a solid following, but dev team New World Interactive is hoping to expand the scope of the franchise with Insurgency: Sandstorm. The first two titles were PC exclusives, but Sandstorm brings the series to PS4 and Xbox One.
The release date hasn't been revealed yet, but Insurgency: Sandstorm should be arriving sometime in 2018. It has a significant uphill battle against console mainstays like Battlefield and Call of Duty, but is bringing some fresh improvements to the formula. For example, Insurgency: Sandstorm will have enhanced reload mechanics with a level of realism that isn't strange to PC-only shooters but is absent from popular console games. Hopefully, the game won't introduce a level of complexity that turns casual console players off. Check out the new teaser trailer below and look out for release date information soon.
