Insurgency sandstorm free open beta on 7/12

The team-based tactical FPS Insurgency: Sandstorm is set to go live on December 12, and before that happens you’ll have the opportunity to play it for free in an open beta that will begin on December 7 and run through the weekend.

To give players an advance look at what’s in store, developer New World Interactive has put up a “gameplay overview” trailer showcasing co-op and PvP game modes, environment, audio, vehicles, movement, and plans for post-release content.

The video emphasizes Insurgency: Sandstorm’s commitment to realism: Some surfaces can be penetrated by gunfire, bullets slow and drop over long ranges, and the HUD is basically non-existent. “Insurgency is all about immersion,” the narrator says. “We keep our HUD very minimal. There’s no kill feed, hit markers, or anything that might distract from the action in front of you. The only way to confirm a kill in Sandstorm is to watch the body drop.”

New World Interactive is currently working on a “massive update” that will go live when the beta begins; the studio said it will be “a big content upgrade on the current closed beta offering,” including “the full map pool, character improvements including new voice lines, an optimization pass, and much more.”

It did not say, however, whether it will address the AI shortcomings we talked about in September preview.

“When it comes to combat, Sandstorm delivers that trademark Insurgency brutality with gusto, even in beta. The Insurgency series has always leaned towards realism where it could, and that continues here,” we wrote at the time.

Unfortunately, the AI is going to need a significant amount of work as well. There are moments where it can seem clever: planning an ambush or lying in wait in dark corners for unsuspecting players. At other times, an enemy might spin 180 degrees to pick players off across the map, or become so focused on one player that they completely ignore others and expose themselves for an easy kill.”

If you just can’t wait until Friday to start shooting at people, immediate access to the ongoing closed beta can be had by preordering the game on Steam. It’s currently available for ten percent off the regular $30 price, with another ten percent cut for owners of the original Insurgency.

In PBS we have already the topranked servers in the world ready for you!
