New World Interactive is preparing for the major update to Insurgency: Sandstorm that is coming on November 8. The update brings a brand new map, Precinct, a new Insurgent weapon, as well as a number of options, tweaks and fixes.
The new update teaser trailer showcases Precinct, a large scale urban map set within the fictional, contemporary conflict of Insurgency: Sandstorm. Tight corners, broken barricades, destroyed streets of burnt-out cars and makeshift roadblocks epitomize this map, bringing the frenetic action and tactical squad-based play of Insurgency to a brand new, urban locale. This new map will feel very nostalgic for Insurgency fans as it encompasses two classic Insurgency maps, District and Contact, in a single, massive urban environment – offering unique gameplay not experienced before in the Beta.
In addition to the new map, the update also brings other improvements such as graphical options, anti-aliasing, animation and character models, optimization improvements and more.
The official PC release for Insurgency: Sandstorm is scheduled for December 12.
