Insurgency: Sandstorm Is Coming To PlayStation 4 And Xbox One
The game released for PC in December 2018, but now it's coming to consoles.
Insurgency: Sandstorm finally has a console release date, over a year after the game's initial, fairly buggy PC release. The game, which focuses on realism and teamwork, stripping the UI back to the essentials, will release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 25, 2020.
You can see the console release date announcement trailer below, which shows off the gritty combat. It's a primarily competitive game, featuring multiple online modes where you fight against other players. There's also a co-op mode, Checkpoint, where players team up to fight AI and complete objectives.
The game has been praised for its audio design, which aims for heightened realism and more intense battle noises.
The game is playable at PAX East over the weekend of February 28 to March 2, if you're in Boston. This is good news, since The Last of Us Part II demo won't be there and companies like CD Projekt Red and PUBG Corporation have also pulled out over fears sparked by the coronavirus.
